Bookmakers Perplexed as Underdogs Seeing Surprising Action at Start of March Madness College Basketball Betting

Wednesday 19th March 2014

The Florida Gators are clear favorites so it's no surprise that bookmakers are taking more bets on them than on the rest of the 68 US college basketball teams competing for the national championship during March Madness. But what seems really mad is that some obvious underdogs are also seeing more action than expected. bookmakers say they’ve seen unusual interest in a couple of March Madness underdog bets this year. Neither Wisconsin (+2500) nor Villanova (+2000) are generally considered as being top favorites for the American college basketball title showdown that begins this week, yet a lot of players have been betting on them.

The Florida Gators (+450) are widely favored and betting action on them is predictably heavy as the NCAA finals competition begins. Wisconsin was defeated last weekend by Nebraska so their popularity with bettors could change. Villanova scored over 60 points in all but one of its 31 games in the regular season and recorded over 80 points on 14 different occasions.

The Final Four tournament will culminate when the men’s college basketball title is decided April 7th at AT&T Stadium, North Texas.

American-style online sportsbook has two generous offers during this busy sportsbetting season – an up to $100 bonus and a $100 free bet.

Basketball fans can claim a 50% bonus, up to $100, by entering coupon code MADNESS14 when they deposit.

Everyone that wagers $1000 or more on NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball at minimum odds of – 200 /1.5 will qualify for a $100 free bet. A special coupon code will be emailed to eligible customers on April 8th.

Attractive odds on both NCAA and NBA are posted under the “Basketball” tab in sportsbook (
