We're officially in the best time of year for college basketball fans! The major conference tournaments are still a week away, but this week presents us with an opportunity to start paying attention to some of the lesser conferences who will all get their bids into the dance.
Amongst the conferences who start play this week in postseason play include America East, the Atlantic Sun, the Big South, the CAA, the Horizon League, the MAAC, the Missouri Valley, the NEC, the Ohio Valley, the Patriot League, the SoCon, the Summit League and the West Coast Conference. By the time we get to this point next week, there will be seven bids to the tourney already punched in the minor conferences.
Perhaps the most interesting story to follow is in the West Coast Conference. Gonzaga's run at a perfect season is said and done with after it lost its regular season finale against BYU, but the Zags have played in the conference title game in this league each year since 1998, and it would love to add a ridiculous 20th consecutive championship game appearance this year at Orleans Arena. A championship for the Zags would be their sixth straight, the best in the history of this conference.
In some cases, this is your first chance to bet on some of these teams in quite some time. America East is a conference that never has betting lines, as an example, and Maryland Baltimore City hasn't had a single betting line posted on any of its games this year. So you'll have to really put on your thinking caps for teams like this one if you want to cash in big in early conference tournament play.
Of course, there's one more week of regular season action for the big boys, too, and that can't be forgotten, especially for teams hovering around the bubble or teams jockeying for the top seeds in America. As is traditionally the case, Duke and North Carolina will play this week as well, and that's expected to be one of the most bet upon games of the entire week at BetCris.
What are you waiting for to get in on all of the action? If you need some more incentive to join or start betting on college hoops, check out our new BetCris Reduced Juice Program!
