Day 2 NCAA Tournament Betting Markets Rundown
With the opening of the 2015 NCAA Tournament underway Thursday and several upsets already in the books it’s time to move on to day two.
18 lined games are scheduled to tip off today in the men's college basketball tournaments, beginning with 15 seed New Mexico State Aggies taking on the 2 seed Kansas Jayhawks at 12:15 ET.
Bookmakers opened Kansas as an 11.5 point favorite with a -900 moneyline (a $900 wager wins $100) but action since the opener has brought the spread and moneyline down across the board. Jayhawk backers can now root for “Rock Chalk, Jayhawk” at the reduced number of -10.5. Gamblers can even find -10 -113 at online sportsbook Heritage by using SBR odds monitoring service.
Biggest Underdog of the Day
The biggest underdog of the day is Robert Morris against (1) seed Duke - a team many sports bettors have making a deep run in the SBR NCAA Bracket Contests. Robert Morris opened as a 22 point underdog and money on the Dukies has pushed the line up ever so slightly to the current Duke -22.5 (Duke wins by 23 or more and Blue Devil backers are celebrating). Game tips off at 7:10pm ET so the madness will be well underway leading up to this one. Moneylines vary ranging from -7000 to a whopping -10170.
Highest Total of the Day
With a lot of totals hanging around in the 120s one stands out from the pack. In the often bracket busting 12/5 matchup (12) Buffalo takes on (5) West Virginia tips off at 2:10pm ET with a total that opened at 151 and has since been bet down to 150. If you wagered on the over you’ll be rooting for both teams to score baskets that make a total score of over 150, while under backers will be looking for a lot of bricks and a defensive struggle.
Biggest Pointspread Move of Day
In one of the late tips the 8 seed San Diego State Aztecs opened up as a -2 spread favorite versus the 9th seeded San Johns Red Storm. Using SBR Odds shows us that after opening -2 that San Diego State has actually been bet to -4 currently as a consensus across the board. (Aztecs now have to win by more than 4 for backers to bring home the cash).
