Three Stats Every Bettor Must Know For The 2018 NCAA Tournament

My most important tip for any recreational bettor during March Madness is really a very basic one: set a goal and a budget. 

Don’t just slap your money down and cross your fingers it all comes out nice in the end. Set a goal this March of how much you’d like to win. It will help you stay disciplined with so many games on the board.  

Also set a budget. Put a cap on how much you’re prepared to spend as an entertainment expense or risk as an investment. When it’s gone, draw the line and live to play another day. 

It’s a simple tip but almost nobody does it so I feel like I should put it out there. 

And now that it’s out there, here are a few more handicapping notes, outlined in more detail in the video above...

Three stats every bettor must know for the 2018 NCAA tournament:  

  • OVER bettors take note: The NCAA Tournament is higher-scoring than ever before 
  • The ACC is the worst bet among major conferences in the tourney
  • Xavier covers at a rate that will blow your mind in the NCAA tournament
