March Madness: The Big Dance

March Madness: The Big Dance provides even bigger betting opportunities

NCAA March Madness Tournament angles to help point you towards betting opportunities that allow you to take advantage of the Big Dance

Angle #1: The Streak Rule

No, we aren't referring to college pranks here. We are talking about teams that are streaking in either a good or a bad way. This is a very simple angle: Bet against teams that have won three in a row, and bet for teams that have lost three in a row. Underdogs simply bring so much value to the table that it is a no-brainer to play them whenever the scenario is right.

Angle #2: Give the Offense a Rest

The public loves to bet on high scoring offenses. You may have heard an old saying that "a good defense always beats a good offense." Well, in most cases it is the stone cold truth. Let the public take the high octane offense. Take the value and go for a good defense.

Angle #3: The Favorites Have the Most to Lose

Should I even have to explain this one? We know that it is very difficult for low seeded teams to make it to the Final Four, or even the Elite Eight. We also know that the first two rounds of the tournament are a dangerous time for the favorites. Simply put, the small conference, or mid-major underdogs are happy to be in the tournament and want to make a name for themselves by beating a big time team. Conversely, the big conference team has expectations placed on them to advance deep into the tournament. Many times, these favorites do not respond to the pressure. Go with the value and bet on the underdogs to cover, it not win outright, against these big time programs.

Angle #4: Bet the Underdog

Hey, this is the NCAA tournament. You don't win money betting the favorites. If you are looking to hit 60% of your bets and make money, you need to go against the chalk. The fact is, the favorites are usually a known commodity. They've been on TV all year with Dickie V. gushing about them and their superstar coaches. Meanwhile, the underdogs have been quietly winning their conference and/or conference championship. They don't get respect because of the "competition" they've been facing. Well, just maybe they could beat better teams if they had the opportunity to play them. This is their opportunity. It is also your opportunity.

The Big Dance 1st Round Power System

Very rarely will we at Sports Betting Acumen ever suggest that you use a "system" when making your sports bets. The Big Dance, however, presents a very good exception. This method has proven to be an excellent moneymaker in almost every year that we have used it.

Here's how it works: All you do is play the Under in every single 1st round tournament game without exception. That means all 32 games without analysis, and regardless of the matchup. Also, be sure to play the same unit bet on every game. That's it.

So, why would a person ever want to bet in this manner? This method is based more on psychology than anything else. Prior to the NCAA tournament, teams play a non-league schedule, followed by a conference schedule, and then conclude with a conference tournament. They do all of this while attending classes. Many small conference schools only qualify for the Big Dance by winning the conference tournament. At then end of the season they are drained. Their reward for excellence is to go to the NCAA Tournament. Every year, there are schools that are going to the tournament for the first time. These teams are keyed up and playing with a lot of emotion. They are also nervous.

Even the schools from the major conferences, including those that regularly make the tournament, experience nerves. They don't call it the Big Dance for nothing. The NCAA Tournament is the goal of every Division I school at the beginning of the season. They want to not only play on national TV, but they want to give a good showing. This results in a general tightness that affects the first half of most first round games.

If you don't believe us, watch the games for yourself. The first half of opening round tournament games are often fraught with turnovers and poor shooting. This is something that is impossible to handicap and, thus, factors that the lines makers will not include in their models.

Give this method a try and watch your profits go through the roof
