Even for Top Seeded US College Basketball Teams, One March Madness Loss Can Mean its Over

US college basketball betting in March MadnessAs US college basketball competition begins in earnest this week, it comes as no surprise that the University of Kentucky is the overall No. 1 seed in the Midwest as Kansas hangs on to a No. 2 seed despite losing in the Big 12 title game. In the East, The Cleveland Cavaliers ended up at No. 2 in what could be a very unpredictable bracket. Duke is the favorite in the South but  Gonzaga and Iowa State could yet have a word or two to say about that. When a single loss means it’s all over, no one should get too comfortable.

It’s early days, but at this point Kentucky (+120) is favored to win the Championship on April 6th in Indianapolis followed by Wisconsin and Arizona (both +700).

AllYouBet, an American-style online sportsbook, has attractive odds on all NCAAB championship games as well as a couple of great March Madness bonus offers.

Until April 7th, AllYouBet is adding an extra 50% bonus (up to $100) to all deposits. Basketball bettors can claim this sportsbetting bonus by entering coupon code MMBONUS15 when they deposit. Everyone that wagers a minimum of $1000 on the Final Four will receive a $100 Free Bet on April 8th.

MVP market hotting up as Super Bowl XLIX approaches

If you bet on the MVP market ahead of last year’s Super Bowl, and if you don’t own a crystal ball, chances are you walked away empty handed.

Malcolm Smith was a surprise winner for many reasons, and his odds of +10000 to repeat the feat are testament to that, but often the market is easier to predict.


Super Bowl XLIX MVP Betting Odds:

Tom Brady +150
Russell Wilson +225
Marshawn Lynch +450

(All odds provided by AllYouBet.ag are accurate
as of today and subject to change).


Tom Brady is chasing his fourth Super Bowl ring and his third MVP award after 2002 and 2004, and the winning quarterback is often the recipient of that particular honor. It is unsurprising, therefore, that Brady’s opposing QB Russell Wilson is second favorite.

However recent years have seen unlikely names buck the trend, and while a repeat for Smith might not be high on most people’s expectations, there are a few other outside bets who have captured people’s attention.

Richard Sherman (+2500) has hit the headlines in the days leading up to the game, while Brandon LaFell (+5000) has been talked up as a potential MVP this time around (all odds from AllYouBet Sportsbook are subject to change).

So who’s your money on this year? Are you going for one of the favorites or does an outside bet take your fancy? Have your say in the comments section below.
