March Madness Betting Odds

March Madness Basketball Odds - Sweet Sixteen Betting

March Madness is a phenomenon that grips the national sports psyche from the first week of March through the first week of April. If you can get to the Sweet Sixteen (final 16 teams) that is doing pretty well, of course the Final Four or Championship game is the ultimate. NCAA Sweet 16 will be played from March as part of NCAA March Madness 2018. Elite Eight matches will play from March. with the Final Four playing on April. College Sweet Sixteen odds present different betting challenges than in the early rounds. The upsets that occurred early dont happen nearly as often in the Sweet Sixteen. When you look at the March Madness lines with the final 16 teams you really have to avoid getting caught up in the underdog frenzy. It works well in the early rounds but when the cream rises to the top it doesnt work as well for the Sweet 16 betting match ups or the Final Four odds.

In the Sweet Sixteen there can often be a team or two that is considered the Cinderella or Dark Horse such as was the case with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2005 and teams such as Gonzaga in prior years, but for the most part, 2011 March Madness betting picks during the Sweet Sixteen will be mostly be made on power teams.

As you look at Sweet Sixteen March Madness odds you want to do the opposite of what you did in the early rounds. You want to look at the favorites first in the March Madness betting line and look for reasons to bet them. That is opposite of what you did earlier when you were looking for reasons to take the dog. The favorites definitely do better as the tournament progresses and the Sweet Sixteen March Madness odds will illustrate this fact.
