NCAAB Basketball Consensus Picks
About NCAA Basketball Consensus
College basketball betting offers sports bettors literally hundreds of games to bet on during a busy Saturday. With sportsbooks posting spreads and totals on so many games, there are always edges you can find and the best tool for finding those edges is studying accurate college basketball consensus data. Here at Odds Shark (and the various sports sites where we gather NCAA hoops consensus votes and picks), thousands of fans are polled every day, producing college basketball percentages indicating how the public is betting. Use the information to follow the crowd or bet against the public. Bookmark this page for daily NCAA basketball trends to help you enjoy more success at the sportsbook.
Add your pick to the consensus, click the Matchup link for any game.
You pop open a matchup report and see that 81.4% of bettors have picked Duke to cover the spread against Wake Forest at -17.5 points. Remembering your Grade 5 math teacher, you calculate that only 18.6% of bettors like the Demon Deacons in this game. Does this mean you should immediately go bet the Blue Devils because the public clearly knows something that you don't or do you immediately bet on Wake Forest because anytime 81.4% of the public is on one team, they are almost always wrong.
Casual or recreational bettors (known by the affectionate name of 'squares') often like to bet favorites or bet their favorite teams, regardless of the line. That means a high percentage isn't always an indicator that the public is right. But your interpretation of the consensus college basketball numbers depends on the way you handicap the games. Regardless, it's critical information and we rate the consensus NCAA basketball picks.
We also encourage visitors to make the consensus data even stronger by adding their opinions and basketball picks to the equation (by simply clicking on the matchup report links). Together, all basketball fans can help generate excellent NCAA hoops consensus percentages that will help everyone in the long run. So bookmark this important page and tell your friends!
