How Do You Bet on College Basketball?

Last Updated:

If you’re interested in betting on college basketball, there are several legal options available in the US as of 2023. You can place wagers on college basketball games through licensed online sportsbooks, retail sportsbooks, or mobile betting apps that are approved by state regulatory bodies.

To get started, you’ll need to create an account with a legal sportsbook and fund it with a deposit. After that, you can browse the available college basketball games and betting options. Common types of bets in college basketball include moneyline bets, point spread bets, totals (over/under) bets, and futures bets.

Moneyline bets involve choosing the outright winner of a game, while point spread bets involve betting on the margin of victory for a particular team. Totals bets involve predicting whether the total number of points scored in a game will be over or under a predetermined number. Futures bets involve wagering on outcomes that won’t be determined until later in the season, such as which team will win the national championship.

It’s important to do your research and keep up with the latest college basketball news and statistics to make informed betting decisions. Additionally, always make sure you are placing bets with a licensed and regulated sportsbook to ensure a safe and secure betting experience. You can find legal sportsbooks on Betting Hero’s sportsbook page here:
