2019 NCAA Basketball Championship Opening Odds

Congratulations to the Villanova Wildcats who crushed the Michigan Wolverines 79-62 to claim the 2018 NCAAB National Championship. Following a thrilling ride, during the 2018 NCAA Basketball March Madness tournament, Bodog bookmakers have posted prices for the 2019 NCAAB Championship. Always reloading, rather than rebuilding, Duke is listed as top chalk to cut down the nets. There is plenty to like in Durham, North Carolina, as the Blue Devils 2018 recruiting class is being compared to Michigan’s 1991 “Fab Five” recruits.

Jalen Rose, Jimmy King, Chris Webber, Juwan Howard and Ray Jackson, were the NCAAB Championship Final runner-up to Duke in 1992. The Blue Devils signed R.J. Barrett, Zion Williamson and Tre Jones (top three recruits at small forward, power forward and point guard) plus #2 SF Cameron Reddish and 5-Star SF Joey Baker. Barrett, who some are calling the next LeBron James, is the son of Rowan Barrett who played on Canada’s National Team in the FIBA WC (1998 & 2002) and 2000 Summer Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. 

That is an embarrassment of riches and, on paper, the Blue Devils (+500) are full marks for their top billing on the Bodog sportsbook NCAAB futures board. That’s a familiar theme as Kentucky, UCLA, Oregon and Kansas all got richer with top recruits as well. Villanova (+800) who will lose National Player of the Year G Jalen Brunson and Third Team All American G Mikal Bridges in the 2018 NBA Draft, are listed as second chalk. The Champs may also lose Donte DiVincenzo and Omari Spellman who have entered the NBA Draft Combine.

NCAA Basketball Future Bets Explained

Similar to NBA hoops, NCAA basketball features a strong bias towards favorites, with hot regular season squads being tagged as top seeds in the tournament. The vast majority of NCAA champions have been number one seeds. Since the tournament expanded, to 64 teams in 1985, the #1 seeds have won 20 tournaments, while seeds 2-8 have won 13 titles. Number two seeds have won five March Madness tournaments, number three seeds have four wins, while fourth, sixth, seventh and eighth seeds have won once. In other words – it is often best to avoid the longshot underdogs.

Less than ten percent of Final Four teams have been a seventh seed or worse since 1991, showing the long road that bottom seeds face. While each year features incredible upsets, by the time the semi-finals arrive, the tournament often shakes off lower seeds which don’t have the same talent level as elite colleges. When looking to place NCAA basketball future wagers, Canucks will come across a vast list of bookmakers vying for their bets. Be warned – they’re not all created equally!

Partnering with a reputable bookmaker is crucial to obtaining the sharpest odds that come with the highest possible payouts. Top sportsbooks often offer promos and player rewards – giving bettor’s a boost in the form of deposit bonuses, free bets and other benefits for new and experienced players alike. For superb service, competitive odds, plus offers that help bettors get the most bang for their basketball betting buck, check out these top ranked CSB NCAA Basketball wagering sportsbooks.
