March Madness Prop Betting

If you think you know how many buzzer-beaters there will be in this year's NCAA Tournament you could make some serious cash. That's just one of the interesting March Madness props currently available at Bovada.

Buzzer-beaters are just one of the things that makes March Madness so exciting. That one final shot finding nothing but net or nothing but iron can end up being the difference between a team moving on or going home. At Bovada the favorite on their buzzer-beater prop is surprisingly zero at 5/7.

You know there's going to be at least one game decided at the horn, though, so that - and of course the low payout - makes picking zero a waste of time.

The rest of the March Madness odds on the prop include one at 7/4, two at 6/1, three at 10/1, four at 20/1, five at 50/1, and six or more at 100/1.

One of the tougher props to pick a winner on is the tournament's Most Outstanding Player. It's a given that the winner of the award is going to come from the team that wins the tournament, but that's not exactly easy to pick either.

The pre-tournament favorite at Bovada is Ohio State, and a number of Buckeyes are also high up on the MOP odds, including Jared Sullinger at 13/2 and Jon Diebler at 12/1. The Duke Blue Devils, the reigning champs, also have the reigning MOP in Kyle Singler. He's actually an underdog to repeat at 6/1, while teammate Nolan Smith is pegged at 13/2.

What about some of the college stars that might be longshots to claim the MOP? BYU's Jimmer Fredette is a heavy underdog at 50/1, while North Carolina's Harrison Barnes is listed at 25/1. Connecticut's Kemba Walker is also listed at 25/1, while one darkhorse bettors may want to think about is Michigan State's Kalin Lucas at 125/1.

Many of the other March Madness props at Bovada have to do with points. Two that we're going to focus on are the biggest point differential in a single game and the highest point total in a game by a single team.

The biggest point differential prop was given an over/under total of 37.5. It would be quite a blowout if any team went OVER on that total. In last year's tournament the biggest beatdown was handed out by Kentucky when they defeated Georgetown 90-60.

That 30-point win would have gone UNDER the total, and going with the UNDER may be the smart pick again this year with such an open field in the tourney.

For the most points scored by single team prop the total was set at 100.5, but the OVER was favored at -140. In last year's tournament only one team scored more than 100 points, when Kansas State got past Xavier 101-96. The year before four teams scored more than 100 points in a single game.

At least one team should pass the century mark again this season (we're looking at you, Kansas and BYU) so the OVER should get paid.
