Our Bovada March Madness Best Bet Picks
So, now you know all the markets and bets you can pick - what would our experts choose?
Well, we'd say a safe bet is to ignore low seed Wild Card picks after the first two brackets are done. Only three small colleges seeded out of the top 10 have ever made the final four. They might do well in the early rounds - but the big teams generally dominate as the tournament progresses.
This year, defensive teams are expected to do well. And the favourites, The Houston Cougars, are a defensive team. Expect them to go far. They currently have good value at Bovada's current 600+ too.
