Every year the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament sees bracket busting teams. Online bookies should pay attention to bracket busting teams because those are the squads that pro and casual bettors are likely to back.
This is especially true if bookie agents are running March Madness contests where their clients fill out an NCAA Tournament Bracket.
Players like to back up their bracket picks with wagers. Pay attention to the following 3 teams that could garner massive action.
14 Florida Gulf Coast – West Region
The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles average 79.4 points per game. Florida Gulf Coast shoots over 50% from the field.
They also shoot over 35% from three. The Eagles love to play up and down the court.
That’s Florida State’s game as well. The Seminoles battle Florida Gulf Coast in Round 1 of the NCAA Tournament.
Since the spread is 12 points, the Eagles are likely to go off at over +300 to beat Florida State outright.
Pay per head agents should be aware of wagers on the moneyline. Bookmakers should consider not allowing Florida Gulf Coast’s moneyline odds to be a part of any parlay bets.
12 Middle Tennessee State – South Region
Middle Tennessee State is favored to beat Minnesota by 1 point.
Since 65% of college hoops handicappers are backing the Blue Raiders, it shows that Middle Tennessee could be a hot choice in a lot of online bookie businesses before Thursday’s tip-off.
Setting a schedule limit override on the Middle Tennessee State versus Minnesota game helps bookmakers manage action on the Blue Raiders.
Middle Tennessee State could garner so much action that bookmakers may have to use their layoff accounts.
10 Oklahoma State – Midwest Region
Oklahoma State is a known team. But, the Cowboys aren’t getting any love from hoops bettors versus Michigan in their Round 1 game.
Michigan, the Big Ten Tournament Champion, is favored by 2.5 points over the Cowboys.
This situation could end up in a per head agents favor. Michigan isn’t that much better than Oklahoma State.
But, only 30% of college basketball handicappers are backing the Cowboys at +2.5.
Risk averse online bookies should set a schedule limit override on the Oklahoma State vs Michigan game.
Use The Right Pay Per Head Tools
By utilizing PPH tools like schedule limit override and the layoff account, agents can ensure that they increase profits and lower risk during March Madness.
Without these tools, per head agents could suffer loss before the thick of the March Madness Men’s Basketball Tournament even begins.
