Three Tips To Help You Win More Money Betting Conference Tournaments

With hundreds of games on the board, how should you bet college basketball’s conference tournament week? 

I’ll tell you how. 

Three tips to help you win more money: 

1. The ACC is an underdog tournament. Since 2001, underdogs have covered at 59 percent in the ACC tourney. They also won straight up about 34 percent of the time. That may not sound like much but consider that dogs only won straight up about 26 percent of the time in all of college hoops this season. 

2. Give the edge to teams off a bye. Over the last six seasons, teams playing against teams not off a bye covered at nearly 56 percent (81-65-5 against the spread). That's for the Power 5 conferences plus the AAC, Big East and Missouri Valley. 

3. Look to take big underdogs. Since 2005, dogs of 15 points or more have covered at 57 percent in all conference tournaments (62-47-4 ATS). In 2017, faves won all 15 of these spots straight up so I wouldn’t get too greedy on the moneyline.
