See below for the top 2015 March Madness betting tips:
- Bet on underdogs when wagering against the spread – This isn’t always easy to do. Kentucky is so good that pulling the trigger versus Kentucky against the spread might sound ridiculous. Not doing so could lead to big losses because 1 seeds are only 17 and 13 against the spread
- Always bet on the underdog when faced with a 5 versus 12 game – 5 seeds, by far, are the worst out of the top 8 seeds against the spread in the NCAA Tournament. 5 seeds have gone 10 and 20 against the spread. In 2014, 5 seeds went 0 and 4 against the spread as only 3 point or above favorites.
- If you want to bet on a favorite ATS, bet on 3 seeds – 3 seeds are 19 and 11 against the spread. If you want to bet on any favorites ATS, bet on 3 seeds. But, 3 seeds only went 2 and 2 ATS in 2014. Be careful!
- Don’t bet on 6 or 7 seeds ATS – Don’t bet on 6 or 7 seeds against the spread. 6 seeds have gone 12 and 18 ATS. 7 seeds have gone 15-14-1 ATS. In 2014, 6 seeds went 1 and 3 ATS. 7 seeds went 2-1-1 against the spread.
- Bet on 8 seeds against the spread – By contrast, 8 seeds have done very well in the NCAA Tournament. 8 seeds are an a very good 18 and 12 ATS. 8 seeds continue to perform well in 2014 when they went 3 and 1 against the spread.
- Also consider betting on 8 seeds straight up – Because 8 seeds play 9 seeds in round 1, the moneyline tends to be fairer than it is with the other seeds. Think about betting on 8 seeds on the moneyline.
- Consider betting 3 and 4 seeds in moneyline parlays – 3 seeds are 27 and 3 straight up while 4 seeds are 23 and 7 straight up. Put 3 seeds and 4 seeds in moneyline parlays in the first round to juice odds. That will also help you stay away from betting on 3 and 4 seeds against the spread.
