      March Madness: Schedule, Odds and Betting Tips for the 2017 NCAA Basketball Tournament

      2017 NCAA Basketball Tournament Dates and Locations

      Crisscrossing the United States, from New York to California, fourteen locations are hosting 2017 March Madness matches this year. The NCAA Basketball Championship tournament tips off with the First Four contests that play out at the University of Dayton Arena in Ohio on March 14 and 15, 2017. Once the Field of 64 is set, first and second round games play out in eight cities that cover the country from Buffalo, NY, to Sacramento, CA. Regional finals then move to four new locations and then the Final Four squads head to the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

      Widely recognized as the King of bracket betting - betting the individual games against the spread is a different process. The NCAAB National Championship tournament is one of the planet’s busiest and most popular basketball events at the top ranked online sportsbooks recommended here at Canada Sports Betting. Packed into three weeks, and played out over twelve game days, there are literally hundreds of match and proposition wagering options offered during the Madness of March.

      Selecting top seeds, while mixing in a few underdogs here and there, is often a safe plan when filling out bracket sheets. Placing single bets on March Madness matches is a different kettle of fish though as that requires some homework. For instance, during the last 21 tournaments, the #1 through #8 seeds posted a 497-175 straight up record versus the #9 to #16 seeds. Looking at ATS betting results, the #1 to #8 seeds posted a much smaller edge as the results drop to 334-326-12.

        Are you a Raptors fan? An NBA fan? Are you wondering where to watch the NBA in Canada?

        Interest and viewership exploded for the Toronto Raptors on their way to winning their first-ever NBA title in 2019. Sure, the Raptors always had a decent following being the only Canadian organization in a league of 30 professional basketball teams, but championship runs have a way of bringing even fringe fans off the sidelines in the international city to being counted among the 5,000 in "Jurassic Park" outside Scotiabank Arena on the shores of Lake Ontario.

        Although the Toronto Raptors didn't make it to the NBA Playoffs this season, we're sure they'll be back next year. You can follow all the teams' progress alongside our industry experts here at Canada Sports Betting.
