Those of us involved with Gambling911.com all these nine odd years never seem amazed by what the betting public loves that we have no clue about, and the 2009 National Invitation Tournament lives up to those expectations.  Yes, it turns out that the 2009 National Invitation Tournament, comprised of bubble teams that failed to make the NCAA Tournament, has quite the following.

"Our regular NCAA Tournament betting traffic is being carried even more by the 2009 National Invitation Tournament," stated Payton O'Brien, Matriarch of Gambling911.com.  "It is truly amazing the interest this particular event is drawing."

The College Basketball Invitational is a relatively new postseason tournament, even though we already have two. The College Basketball Invitational is the alternative to the alternative of the NCAA Tournament. For those teams not good enough for the NCAA tournament, or even the NIT, the College Basketball Invitational Placed Alongside NCAA and NIT College Basketball Invitational is a safe haven. What's more, a program doesn't even need to have a winning record to be invited. 

The 2009 National Invitation Tournament will be a single-elimination tournament of 32 National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I teams that are not selected to participate in the 2009 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament. The 72nd annual tournament will begin on March 17 on campus sites and end on April 2 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

"While all the online sportsbooks were scrambling to get up odds on the 2009 NCAA Basketball Tournament, the poor NIT Tournament has seemingly been forgotten by many of them," said Don Shapiro of Gambling911.com.

Even more amazing is that not all online sportsbooks were offering 2009 National Invitation Tournament odds, and those that are didn't post them until late Monday.

SBG Global had odds up on the National Invitation Tournament.  This event tips off Tuesday, and quite obviously with a whole lot of fanfare.
