March Madness is an annual college basketball championship event in the USA. Between Tuesday, March 14, and Monday, April 3, the top men’s basketball teams from NCAA Division I compete for the championship title. This means it’s time to keep an eye out for those special games.

“The Big Dance,” as the championship is also called, is approaching, and that means bookmakers are starting to share their odds including free college basketball picks which many fans can use to place bets on their favorite teams and players. As usual, we are keeping up with sports gossip, and that is why we are sharing our best betting tips ahead of one of the most nerve-wracking basketball events of the year.

Bet on Athletes, Not Professionals

The first thing you should be wary of before March Madness is that it is athletes you are betting on, not professional basketball players. Sure, those who qualify for March Madness are the best teams, but betting on March Madness is still quite different from betting on the NBA, even though it is obviously the same sport.

By this we mean it can be a bit more difficult to predict the results of a game because virtually anything can happen in college sports. Also, there are not as many stats to rely on, so you may not be as well-versed before the games. However, this adds an extra level of excitement to betting, so it may be more of an advantage than a disadvantage.

Subscribe to March Madness Picks

It is impossible to predict the result of March Madness and the games during the championship, but it is possible to get a better insight into the participating teams by subscribing to free college basketball picks. The better prepared you are for March Madness and each game, the more strategically you can place your bets. Moreover, you are taking advantage of the experts’ picks for free, so you have nothing to lose.

Understand the Various Betting Options

It is important to have an understanding of what type of bets you can make during The Big Dance. The most common is to go with Moneyline, which means you bet on which team you believe will win the entire championship or just one game during March Madness. Another popular betting option is Over/Under, which means you bet on whether you think the final score will land above or below the number of goals predicted by the bookmaker.
