How Can I Do My Own Research For NCAAB Picks?

Toward that end, Bookies.com features a number of helpful features including a news section that updates bettors on important information such as injuries and line moves, and a public consensus betting tool that shows where the majority of wagers are going on any given contest.
What are NCAAB Picks Against the Spread?
The point spread is the most popular type of college basketball bet. It involves a number (or “line”), and the favorite has to win by more than that much in order for the bettor to collect. The underdog can be a winner if it loses by less than that same amount. If the line is Duke -8 Virginia Tech, for example, the Blue Devils have to win by nine or more points for the bettor to win. If you’re betting the underdog, the Hokies have to lose by seven points or less — or win outright — for the bettor to collect.
Point spreads can also include half-points, and often do to avoid “pushes” in which no one wins or loses. If the line is Villanova -6½ Georgetown, for instance, the favored Wildcats must win by seven or more points for the bettor to collect. If the bettor is wagering on the Hoyas, losing by six or less (or again, winning outright) makes him or her a winner. Point spreads can also change depending on how much money is bet on one team or another, so savvy bettors know to shop around to find the best number.
I’ve Made My NCAAB Pick, Now What?
Once you’ve spotted a college basketball game with odds to your liking, it’s time to make the bet.
