It could best be described as a long distance marathon. That begins in mid-November and concludes on Championship Monday, the first Monday in April.
Point spread bets are one of the most common sports bets.
Spreads are intended to level the betting playing field between two teams. If the handicappers do their job right and choose the right spread number, there should be an even chance of winning or losing the basketball bet taking into account the spread and a roughly equal number of bettors on both sides of the basketball game.
In a basketball spread bet, the team perceived to have less of a chance of winning will have points added to their score and the team expected to win will have the same number of points subtracted from their score. Those points are known as the point spread, and are sometimes called the line or the price.
Let's say you bet on the team everyone expects to win. Since everyone expects this team to win, it will have points subtracted from it's final score - the spread - to even things up.
The team must win by the point spread given at the time you placed your sports bet. If the team you bet on still has a greater number of points than the opponent after the point spread has been subtracted from its final score, your bet is said to have covered the spread and you win.
Point spreads can go up or down at any time depending on various factors like player injuries, weather, and the like. The spread may also be adjusted if the bets coming into the sports books are disproportionately favoring one side or the other. You are generally locked in to whatever the point spread was at the time you placed your sports bet.
College basketball point spreads are helpful and a good indicator of how the game will go, which is why you need to know how the point spread works.
The college game is simply easier to predict than the pros hence may bettors prefer to bet on College than the pros. The NCAA basketball point spread works just like any other.
A point spread is the number of points subtracted from the team expected to win. The point spread is influenced by team morale and fitness and player injuries.
The basketball college line can move on account of a late breaking injury or heavy betting action coming in on one side.
The basketball college line may be subject to adjustment by the bookmaker to adjust the hopes of getting action on the side that is not seeing too much betting.
Beating the basketball college point spread is no easy task. In college basketball, tendencies are still tough to predict because you are dealing with young men who can, at times, be inconsistent.
Some teams struggle when on the road. Others have a solid winning percentage after a loss.
Some teams have a hard time if they have been off for a few days and their focus has strayed from the court.
Some college teams don't handle being heavy favorites against the NCAA basketball point spread well. These and other numerous sources of data affect the college basketball point spreads from week to week.
Wait and watch the basketball college line movements before placing a bet.

A profitable basketball bet that is often times overlooked are college basketball totals.
In NCAA Basketball, the over/under is a standard wager in which bets are made on the total number of points that will be scored by both teams. Bettors wager on the total either being over or under a certain amount.
Just like betting on the spread or moneyline, you have one of two choices with an over/under bet, making it an even odds wager.
College basketball totals work the same way as football or NBA totals and the bettor risks $11 to $10. Continue

Even if you have no bet at all for the game as a whole, you can often make a bet at the half when you feel that you have an advantage over the linesmaker.
