NIT Tournament Spreads

It took some time but the NIT Tournament spreads for Tuesday March 15, 2011 games are finally up at Bookmaker.com.

The NIT Tournament does get a decent amount of attention from gamblers and College Basketball fans despite its treatment as the “red headed step child” of March Madness.

“Traffic related to the NIT games is always quite exceptional,” notes Gambling911.com Senior Editor Payton O’Brien. 

The National Invitational Tournament has a stigma attached to it, as noted by Wikipedia:

The status of the post-season National Invitation Tournament as a "consolation" fixture has led to somewhat of a stigma in the minds of many fans. When teams with tenuous hopes of an NCAA Tournament berth lose away from home late in the season, opposing fans may taunt the players in the closing seconds with the prospect of having to play in the NIT.  This is done regardless of whether the home team is headed for the NCAA Tournament or not.  Irv Moss, a journalist for the Denver Post, once wrote of such a taunt to a defeated team, "The three-letter word... was far more cutting than any four-letter word they could have hollered."
