When it comes to actual games for this year's March Madness, the Badgers-Ducks matchup was seeing the most volume early on. 


WHY BE AN AFFILIATE WHEN YOU CAN GET 100%?  JUST PAY $5 PER PLAYER

Early lopsided matchups included Belmont vs. Temple, with the Bruins seeing nearly 80% of the action as a -3.5 favorite versus Temple.  The line was hovering between -3 and -3.5.  This game is being played on Tuesday.

The Syracuse Orange as a -2.5 favorite had 75% of the backing versus Baylor.  There were a few books moving between -2 and -2.5 but we weren't seeing many other numbers early.

Cal Irvine had 72% of the early spread action as a +5 underdog.  One would anticipate Kansas State becoming a -4.5 to maybe even a -4 point favorite as a result, and indeed a few books had moved to the -4.5 by Monday afternoon.

LSU had about 83% of the early action versus Yale.  The Tigers line was -7.5.

The Golden State Warriors vs. San Antonio Spurs, not surprisingly, had plenty of (balanced) action Monday night.

Boston as a -3.5 home favorite against the Denver Nuggets had some 72% of the spread action.  The line trend is -3 to -3.5.
