The 2018 Men’s NCAA Basketball Championship has finally arrived. Throughout the tournament we’ve experienced highs and lows, and then some more lows, then a small uptick in happiness, returning quickly to the sadness that we all know and love. We’ve dried our tears, or simply run out of them to cry.
Which makes it kind of strange we’re now writing a primer on how to bet the 2018 National Championship finale. I suppose it’s good to have a short memory when it comes to loses and get back up on that horse as they say, so I guess I’ll give it a shot.
Did you know the game is being played in a football stadium? The effects of this situation are far reaching. For instance, players have to walk longer to get to the court which is on an elevated platform. Think of an old timey sex traffickers market, except with basketball, and the powers that be are making far more revenue off the backs of their charges who get even less of a return. At least the girls in the red light district are allowed to have their meals paid for. Makes you think.
The line opened at Villanova -6½ with a total of 145½ at our beloved recommended online betting website MyBookie.ag, which seems reasonable all things considered. I think we could easily see NCAA Championship odds be Villanova -7 by game time, if not, -7½. A shrewd prognosticator will wait until the last hour before tip off to get the best closing line value and take advantage of what I believe will be a great number on Michigan. If you can get Michigan +7, jump on that, but do try to hold out and see if 7½ pops up.
The total has been driven down to 144½, as sharps anticipate Michigan’s slowed down offense should lessen chances Villanova has to rain down 3s like dollar bills at Spearmint Rhino. If registered at an NCAA offshore sportsbook catering to square players, you should be able to get on the sharp u145½ if waiting until just before tip off. Long story short, the vast majority of people will be loading the Over as the near 100 points put up by Villanova on Saturday is still fresh in their minds.
For propositions, always take the Under. We can’t tell you how to formulate these numbers yourself, we are touts after all. The only way to get them is of course to joint the Sports Information Network March Madness Tout at the beginning of the tournament. If you have a time machine and are able to do this, please bring me along as I have many, many regrets from the past that I’d like to rectify.
