March Madness Betting and Contest
Selection Sunday has come and gone, the Play-In Game is over, the brackets are set March Madness is here.
Online sportsbooks are taking action on all the Games, big and small. There hasnt been any significant line movement, as most Games are seeing reasonably balanced action.
A few big dogs attracted early attention, as 5dimes.com reported action on Ohio, who are currently a 13.5-point underdog vs. Georgetown (Ohio has 61% of the volume in that matchup), and on Robert Morris, who are 18-point dogs vs. Villanova. Early money came in on Robert Morris right away, driving the line down to 18. The split is sitting at 64% on the big dog so far in that one.
Speaking of big underdogs, the Lehigh Mountain Hawks see themselves as 26-point underdogs in their opening round matchup with the Kansas Jayhawks.
In the Jayhawks last 14 Games overall, they are 13-1 SU, but are only 5-9 against the spread in those starts. It is worth noting that Kansas is only 2-6 ATS the last eight times they have been favored by 8 points or more.
In the Jayhawks last 16 Games played in the month of March, they have produced 4 Overs, 11 Unders and a Push.
The Lehigh Mountain Hawks booked a ticket to the Big Dance, thanks largely to an impressive run since Christmas.
The Mountain Hawks have been hot since Dec. 22, riding an 18-4 record SU.
Early betting action has been split pretty evenly, with Kansas sitting with 54% of the betting volume.
