2016-17 College Basketball Season Betting Guide

College basketball is back. It has been eight months since Villanova won a thrilling 77-74 decision over UNC to cut down the nets in Houston. That game left NCAAB fans with a fantastic lasting image to help carry them through the college basketball-less summer months.

But no more looking in the past – it’s time to look ahead to the 2016-17 college basketball season.

Of course, we have the usual powerhouses looking to dominate once again, as the likes of Duke, UNC, Kentucky and Kansas are all stacked and ready to make a deep run into the tournament. But, as March Madness has taught us, you never know.

So here it is, your one-stop shop for all the sports betting content you need before the start of the NCAAB season.

NCAAB Futures: Three Long Shots That Offer Tremendous Value

We all know about the Dukes and UNCs of the world – the powerhouse programs that will always recruit the top talent and be a legitimate threat to cut down the nets at the end of the season.  But what about the less heralded programs?

Allen Favored to Win AP Player of the Year

Grayson Allen joined the long list of hated Duke players last season after the then sophomore scored a bunch and appeared to trip players several times. That doesn’t mean he isn’t good, as the explosive guard averaged 21.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists while shooting 41.7 percent from beyond the arc.

2015-16 College Basketball Betting Review

The college basketball season is quickly approaching, but before we can look ahead, we should look back. The 2015-16 NCAAB season was a wild one full of upsets, buzzer beaters and excitement, but how did bettors find value in all the madness?

2016-17 College Basketball Betting Predictions

Before we enter into the new college basketball season, I took it upon myself to dig into the numbers and make a prediction about who will be the best and worst bets of the upcoming year. All of these teams fall on the more obscure side, but since they see less national exposure, they should have some juicy lines.

Odds On An Undefeated Team Entering March Madness

There have been 19 teams in college basketball history that entered March Madness coming off a perfect regular season. That is just 19 teams in the 77-year history of the D-1 basketball tournament.

Duke Faves To Win The ACC, But Top Tier Dangerous

To the surprise of nobody, Duke is the favorite to win the ACC this upcoming college basketball season. The bulk of the Blue Devils roster consists of recruits who were at the top of their class and combo guard Grayson Allen is the preseason favorite to win player of the year.

Experienced Wisconsin Big Ten Favorites

The first half of last season was rocky for the Wisconsin Badgers, but they went 11-3 in their final 14 regular season games and made it to the Sweet 16. With the Badgers returning 99 percent of their minutes from last season, they enter the 2016-17 campaign as the favorites to claim the Big Ten crown.

Competitive Big East Looks To Take Out Villanova

Villanova cut down the nets in Houston last season and the team looks primed to take a run at back-to-back tournament victories. With a stellar season last year, ’Nova enters the 2016-17 college basketball season as heavy -150 favorites to win the Big East conference crown.

Loaded Oregon Favored To Win Pac-12

The Oregon Ducks are loaded and primed for another deep run into the Madness after making it all the way to the Elite Eight last year. Oregon returns the bulk of its lineup from last season, including four of the top five scorers.

Can Anyone End Kansas’ Reign Of Dominance Over Big 12?

Kansas has laid claim to at least a share of the Big 12 conference championship for each of the past 12 years. The last team other than the Jayhawks to claim a solo title of the Big 12 was Oklahoma State in 2004, a team that was led by Tony Allen and Joey Graham.

Kentucky Overwhelming Favorite To Win SEC Crown

To the surprise of nobody, Kentucky will enter the 2016-17 college basketball season as the overwhelming favorite to win the SEC. Despite losing the bulk of his starting lineup from last season, John Calipari had one of the best recruiting classes in the nation, which was highlighted by the guard duo of Malik Monk and De’Aaron Fox.
