We are going to take a look back at many of the March Madness game total betting statistics and trends spanning the last 20 NCAA Championship contests. With that said and the annual March Madness tournament getting closer by the day, let’s get started,
The History Of Betting On The Total During March Madness
Over the last 20 NCAA title games, the Over holds a narrow 11-9 edge, though the last 100 title tilts have produced a balanced 5-5 O/U mark. Last season’s Over outcome (138 points) in Louisville ‘s 82-76 win over Michigan snapped a three-game Under streak.
There have been five streaks of at least two identical outcomes, either Over or Under while there has been one four-game streak, which produced a quartet of Overs from 1997-2000. There was also the aforementioned three-game Under streak from 2010-2012 and a pair of two-game streaks which produced a pair of Under outcomes in 2001 and 2002 and a pair of Over outcomes in 2006 and 2007.
In addition to knowing your recent title game Over/Under history, NCAA college basketball bettors also need to know the recent O/U history of each and every team involved when making Over/Under wagers throughout the course of the wildly popular March Madness tournament.
Remember, brush up on your March Madness history and you’ll undoubtedly increase your chances of cashing early and often once the 2014 NCAA Basketball Tournament gets underway on March 18.
