NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament Odds (2009)

The NCAA Men's basketball tournament odds for 2009 will be available immediately following the Selection Sunday show at Bookmaker.com.   As anyone who's been around online gambling as long as Gambling911.com has knows, Bookmaker.com is part of the BetCRIS.com family of fine sportsbooks and they happen to be the oldest established catering to the North American market since 1985 (they opened up as a call center only sportsbook and came online in 1997).

It is beneficial to get the lines for the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament early on in order to obtain the best number, but be sure to keep an eye on those line movements as well.  Here's why:  Bookmaker.com is home to more "sharp" bettors than anyone else (the so-called wise guys).  If the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament odds move dramatically (by more than a half point) in any one direction from the time in which they open, you can rest assured that the "sharps" were hitting that number.

Bookmaker.com tends to offer some of the best odds.  They also feature the top 10 bets - which teams the public is on.  As a general rule of thumb, one should always consider betting against the public as they are wrong more times than not.  Unfortunately, we don't always know when they will be wrong.

They also offer betting on quarters and half times of games.   

Like most online sportsbooks, Bookmaker.coes offer a March Madness contest:


Bracket Contest Prizes:

1st PRIZE - $5000 cash + 50" Flat-Panel TV (Worth: $2700)

2nd PRIZE - $2500 cash + 50" Flat-Panel TV (Worth: $2700)

3rd PRIZE - $1500 cash + 50" Flat-Panel TV (Worth: $2700)

4th to 100th - $100 FREEPLAY


Additionally, Bookmaker.com is giving away a free 25 percent on your initial deposit for a limited time only.
