Free College Basketball Picks Explained

That’s precisely what we do here at Pickswise. Our dedicated college basketball team covers every morsel of NCAAB action, leaving no stone unturned in the search for the best value picks for the top CBB action, and NCAA Basketball Futures, all of which are accompanied with full analysis, for free, only here at Pickswise.

Free College Basketball Picks Against The Spread (ATS)

One of the more popular college basketball wagers is betting against the spread (ATS). Against the spread betting isn’t just picking a winner of the basketball game, it’s about picking the team who will win by a set margin, known as covering the spread.

Let’s say you bet your money that Team A covers the spread (wins by a certain amount of points), Duke -6.5 for example. Or that Team B will cover the spread (keep the game closer than oddsmakers expect), Kentucky +6.5. If Duke beat Kentucky 64-60, then Kentucky would cover the spread, and underdog backers will cash their tickets on Kentucky +6.5 points.

The disparity is a big thing in many college basketball matchups and as such Moneyline betting will often see small odds about a favorite. Betting against the spread is very common, for this reason. It allows bettors to wager on the big favorites, who are expected to win, at better odds, but also the opportunity to bet the underdog. These are the main reasons why college basketball against the spread betting is so popular, but it is also one of our most popular college basketball picks on Pickswise. This is because knowing when an underdog might keep a game close or when potentially evenly matched teams might have blowout is very hard to predict without all the research, expertise, analysis and data our team has at its disposal.

Free College Basketball Totals Picks (Over/Under)

The other main NCAAB wager is the totals which are simply betting over or under a set number of points in a game. This market is seen to be one of the easier markets to beat the book if you can get to grips with some of the most important statistics which contribute to how many points will be scored in a ball game.

Some of the most important factors to consider when handicapping totals in basketball are the number of possessions per team in a game and the pace of play. Our experts at Pickswise consider these key angles as well as matchups, injuries, and betting trends to determine which side of the line has the best chance of hitting, and we have a strong record of getting this right.

With so many games available to bet on there’s always great potential for College Basketball Parlays. You could make it a multi-game pick combining different money line or against the spread bets or you might want to get creative with other bet types within a single game parlay. Remember when you parlay you need all included bets to win to cash your wager, but with all those odds multiplied it can be very lucrative.
