NBA basketball and College basketball are both bet primarily using pointspreads and totals with a built in vig of 10% - easy for bettors and easy for bookmakers. Baseball, hockey and other sports rely on moneylines, runlines, pucklines, etc. which confuse many bettors (especially novices) and this confusion reduces the total handle on these sports.
NBA Basketball Betting and NCAA college Betting. When you bet a straight play, you have to risk your money in an 11/10 ratio (that extra 10% is called the vigorish, or the "vig" or "juice" in slang). You risk $11 to win $10 or $110 to win $100 or $55 to win 50, etc Ideally from the sportsbook perspective half the people betting will take one team in a game, half will take the other then the sportsbook will make its profit from the losing side. Imagine that people betting as a group risked $55,000 to win $50,000 on Team A, and $55,000 to win $50,000 on Team B. It doesn't matter who wins the sportsbook will pocket $5,000 in profit and use the other $50,000 from the losers to pay off the winners. All of this is important to you, because it means that for smart players, sports betting is the best money making proposition in all of the betting industry.
College basketball programs and football are highly competitive, widely televised and popular for sports betting. For these reasons they allow us to watch future professional superstars develop.
College basketball has college programs that provide almost all the players for the professional leagues, while college baseball and college hockey programs only get the players that aren't drafted directly out of high school.
Players like Michael Jordan and Peyton Manning had outstanding college careers before their success in the pros. Betting on college games accounts for roughly half of the total betting on basketball and a little less than that for football.
