Virginia was a 6 to 1 fourth choice right after the Selection Committee set odds. The Cavaliers weren’t favored to win the NCAA College Basketball Tournament.

Amazingly, sports bettors dumped on the Cavaliers.

Now, the Cavaliers are a solid 5.5 to 1 chalk to win the 2018 March Madness Tournament.

How should per head agents handle betting on the Virginia Cavaliers? They should handle the Cavaliers like any other team in the NCAA College Basketball Tournament.

Don’t set overall max betting limits.

The 2018 NCAA Men’s College Basketball Tournament is the one sporting event where the odds to win the NCAA Tournament are much lower than the true odds to win the Tournament.

For example, Las Vegas set the odds on Villanova at 7/2 to win the NCAA Tournament. Villanova is now 6 to 1. That means sports bettors jump on Duke, Virginia, and Michigan State before betting on Villanova.

What it means is that action is across the board on who will win the 2018 Final Four. For you, the per head agent, this is like accepting gold without having to mind the gold yourself.

It’s important to note that a team will win the NCAA Men’s College Basketball Tournament.

If you’ve received $10,000 on Villanova to win the NCAA College Basketball Tournament and you aren’t comfortable with the payout, absolutely cut off betting.

However, based on where the action is going, you might not receive close to your cut off point on any single team in the NCAA Men’s College Basketball Tournament.

If you don’t want to risk it, make sure max betting limits are in place.

But, if you believe like so many college basketball handicappers do that this NCAA Men’s College Basketball Tournament is one of the deepest in recent memory, let the future book money to ride.
