Sports Marketplace – NCAA BB Edition 

Recapping Last Week

Marketwatch took another lowly dog in Oklahoma State last week.  They were unable to cover the 14.5-point spread against the highly ranked Texas Longhorns as they won 73-55.  Hopefully you stayed the course in betting against the public for Texas’ next game against Nebraska.

2010-11 NCAA BB Games to Watch: 3-2 (60%)* 

NC State (+6) over North Carolina

This is a rivalry game in which two teams are heading in opposite directions.  NC State has lost 8 of their last 11 games including a 20-point loss to the Tar Heels on January 29th.  Meanwhile, UNC has climbed up to 19 in the national polls and have won 8 of their last 9 games.  Their only loss in that stretch came to their other rival, Duke, by six points.

Despite the blowout in their last matchup, the opening line favored North Carolina by five points.  Nearly every bettor seems to think this line is way off, as 87% of the bets have come in on the road favorite.

These lopsided percentages our definitely in line with our Square Play philosophy.  Many bettors are afraid to take these “ugly games” because it’s hard to convince yourself that the lesser team can pull through, but it happens more often than you would think.

Our latest blog post highlights Sports Insights’ Square Plays in all sports throughout the year and shows some great results for our members.
