College Basketball betting and Las Vegas Oddsmaker

By offering college basketball odds and point spreads, Las Vegas' oddsmakers have an amazing amount of control over who bets what amount, and at what point in time they bet that amount, thus enabling them to keep the action divided in half.

However, before oddsmakers can even begin to make adjustments to a particular betting line to keep action divided in half, they must choose a starting point or "opening Vegas line" for the game. If an opening line doesn't draw even action, the sooner the line can be adjusted to draw even action, the more juice Vegas can guarantee for itself.

Therefore, you can see that Las Vegas' oddsmakers would be very interested in knowing what specific college basketball point spread or odds line number would draw even betting action for a given game before having to release an opening line for that game to the public.

The oddsmakers' greatest strength for dividing betting action is based on the obvious fact that most sports bettors make their betting decisions by relying on information they have collected about the matchup. As a result, Vegas' oddsmakers have developed techniques that allow them to measure the level of information prospective sports bettors know about a given game before having to create and to release the opening line for that game.

College Basketball First Half Betting

Books offer first half betting for the simple purpose of increasing handle. The more you bet, the more (hopefully) the book earns.

There is not much secret in how First Half lines are derived, it is generally just the point spread for the game cut in half with a half point to full point adjustment against the favorite.

It is very easy to find a team’s total points for and against for the season as a total. Sportbet Sportsbook and major sports website provides this readily. What is tougher to find is a team’s points for and against broken out by first half and second half.

Remember that a team is playing the same opponent in both half’s of every game so even great and horrible teams will have a stronger half.

Some teams get off to a quick start but fade while others start slowly but finish strong. When you compare two teams that are playing each other and see that one plays better in the first half and their opponent plays better in the second half, there may be an opportunity to exploit the weakness of the first half pointspread. This is by no means a system, but it is definitely something you can easily do in a few minutes every week.
