by WagerHome Blog on November 4, 2019

The college basketball season tips off on Tuesday, and there is a lot of time between then and March Madness. That is good for you as a bookie with all of the college hoops betting action that is rampant for the next few months.

It is important that when you have a legit Pay Per Head website, like the one you can get through WagerHome.com, that you get in touch with your players and let them know all of the college basketball betting options. There are so many of them from spreads and totals to moneylines and futures that you can offer your players, as the more betting options they have, the more they can bet and the more money you can make.

One popular betting option is the futures bet on which team will win the national championship. Players can have betting action the whole season with that bet, as they can wager on the team they think will be cutting down the nets in March.

The usual suspects being the powerhouses of college hoops have the best betting odds to win it all in Michigan State (+650), Kentucky (+800), Kansas (+850), and Duke (+1000), but let’s take a look at three darkhorses that can win the title.

Texas Tech (+2500)

The Red Raiders were the national runner-up last season, and they do not have great odds to win it all since they lost three of five starters. Davide Moretti and Kyler Edwards are the returning players, but the reason the Red Raiders are a darkhorse is that they have incoming freshman Jahmius Ramsey, who may be a one-and-done player and is highly touted to have a big season.

Chris Clarke and T.J. Holyfield are a couple of solid graduate transfers, and head coach Chris Beard knows how to get his players to buy into the Tech system. The Red Raiders are flying under the radar to begin the season, and they have the talent to go on another deep March Madness run.

Arizona (+3500)

Arizona is the 21st-ranked team in the preseason polls, and they are all about youth, with a pair of five-star freshmen, Nico Mannion and Josh Green, expected to lead the team. The Wildcats also have top-50 recruit Zeke Nnaji in the paint, and the school got some good news recently, as Kentucky transfer Jemarl Baker can play this season and not sit out.

There are still a lot of questions for head coach Sean Miller to answer, but the Wildcats are loaded with talent.

Utah State (+7500)

Talk about a darkhorse in Utah State, which is not from a major conference and has major longshot odds. However, the Aggies have, perhaps, the best center in the nation in Neemias Queta, and they bring back five of their top six players from last season, including Sam Merrill, who may have a breakout season.

The team won 28 games last season and made the Big Dance, losing in the first round, but they have almost all of their players back and may make a lot of noise come March.

The college hoops season is here, and you, as a bookie, have to pounce on all the betting options available. Let your players know all of their college basketball betting options, as there are many, and you can really profit with your PPH site in the several months of the NCAA basketball season.
