College Basketball Futures Betting

The height of every college basketball season culminates with March Madness, when 68 teams earn a trip to the NCAA Tournament and fans all across the country try to predict the precise outcome of the postseason competition.

While you may have high hopes of defying those one in 120.2 billion odds of filling out the perfect bracket and predicting the exact result of the Big Dance, there's an easier way to win cash on the NCAA Tournament by checking out your local sportsbook.

With college basketball futures, you can wager on which team you think will win March Madness and potentially bank a huge payout if you correctly pick the winning school in advance.

Betting on the NCAA Tournament champion

Long before the college basketball season starts, you can find enticing odds on college basketball futures and back a team with long odds. For instance, let's say you like a blueblood like Kentucky to win the upcoming rendition of March Madness. Before the beginning of the tournament, you can back the Wildcats at longer odds, like +750, before they begin their quest toward the Final Four.

The farther a team advances, the shorter its odds will get, so it's better to leap on those NCAAB futures ahead of time instead of waiting until the Sweet Sixteen or Elite Eight.

The great thing about NCAAB futures, you can often get the favorite at plus-money odds because of the difficulty in predicting an outcome far into the future. Thus, futures odds usually offer greater payout potential than betting the moneyline or point spread on individual games.

For example, let's say you want to back the Auburn Tigers at +900 odds before they play their first game of the college basketball tournament.

If you bet $100 on Auburn's odds, you would win an additional $900 if the Tigers cut down the nets.

Likewise, if you like a Cinderella, like the Iona Gaels at +25000, you would earn a whopping 25K on a $100 wager, while just a $10 bet would get you a cool $2,500.

Conference tournament and Naismith Player of the Year futures

The tournament champion isn't the only type of NCAAB futures odds available at the sportsbook. You can also bet on conference tournament winners, the Over/Under on a particular team's tournament seed, or the recipient of college basketball's annual honors, like the Naismith College Player of the Year Award.
