As sports bettors, this gives us a great opportunity to research the games, and find those edges to increase our long-term betting success. That's precisely what the community at Sportsjaw does, we share information to help the community win.

Free College Basketball Picks Against The Spread (ATS)
Betting against the spread (ATS) is very popular in college basketball as there are many times when matchups produce big spreads and money line wagers aren't an option. Against the spread betting isn't about picking a winner of the basketball game, it's about picking the team who will cover the spread dictated by the bookmakers in Vegas.
Let's say you bet that Team A covers the spread (wins by a certain amount of points), Texas Tech -6.5 for example. Or that Team B will cover the spread (keep the game closer than oddsmakers expect), Duke +6.5. If Texas Tech beats Duke 64-60, then Duke would cover the spread, and underdog backers will cash their tickets.
The disparity is a big thing in many college basketball matchups and as such moneyline bets don't get a lot of action. Betting against the spread is very common, for this reason. It allows sports bettors to wager on the big favorites, who are predicted to win, at better odds, but also the opportunity to bet the underdog. These are the main reasons why college basketball against the spread picks is one of our most popular betting choices.
Free College Basketball Totals Picks (Over/Under)
The other main college basketball wager is the totals (O/U) 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 bookie if there are any existential circumstances around injuries, suspensions, and weather (for football). Statisticians also can give themselves a leg up with important statistics and AI models which can predict how many points will be scored in a particular matchup.
Some of the key factors to consider when handicapping totals in basketball are the number of possessions for each team and pace of play. When betting on college basketball totals, consider these key angles as well as matchups, injuries, and betting trends to help with making your college basketball picks.
