College Basketball Betting – Top Five Disappointments in 2009-10

Betting on March Madness is often like a super casino, but the picture becomes clearer as the season goes on. There have been a few big disappointments as we count down the days to NCAA Tournament time, and here’s a look at who has dropped the ball thus far.

Texas (+500)

There’s still plenty of time for the Longhorns to turn it around, but a recent stretch in which they’ve dropped six of their last nine has to be difficult on the confidence. The Longhorns have gotten inconsistent guard play, which is a shame because they have a bonafide stud in Damion James. If the guards, particularly freshman Avery Bradley, can shake out of their slump, the Longhorns can still make noise.

North Carolina (+2500)

The defending champions are in real danger of missing the NIT, and their task was made tougher with Ed Davis’ broken wrist. At least this means that Davis, who was being forecasted as a lottery pick, will probably come back to Chapel Hill and make up for this terrible season. The Tar Heels can’t play defense, and they turn the ball over far too much, which are signs of inexperience. We didn’t expect them to roll to another national championship after losing the likes of Tyler Hansbrough, Ty Lawson, Danny Green and Wayne Ellington to the NBA, but no one saw this coming.

Connecticut (+4000)

The Huskies managed to keep Kemba Walker and Stanley Robinson in school after last year, joining Jerome Dyson in a very dangerous trio. However, it hasn’t turned into success for UConn, who also had coach Jim Calhoun leave with an undisclosed medical problem. Calhoun returned to an “embarrassing” loss against Cincinnati, and he surely inspired the Huskies to their best win of the season, an upset win at Villanova. Like Texas, the Huskies still have time to turn it around, and their performance down the stretch could change the mind of some online betting players. 먹튀폴리스 먹튀검증업체 

The Big East is tough, and the Fighting Irish hasn’t been able to keep up around preseason All-American Luke Harangody, who is now out with a knee injury. We figured that the Fighting Irish would stay in the top half of the conference, but now, they’ll need to run the table to have any shot at the big dance. It’s even worse because the Fighting Irish have lost six games by three points or less.
