College Basketball Consensus
The consensus info you find on Odds Shark gives you insight into how people have bet on certain teams. Sometimes referred to as betting percentages, the consensus gives you an idea of what’s going down at the sportsbook. Using this information, you can decide if you want to bet with or against the public.
Betting With or Against the Public
The NCAA Basketball consensus gives you an advantage because you can see how the public bets on each team. Seeing how the public has bet can help you decide how you want to bet. If you agree with the public, then you can bet with them. If you disagree with the public, you can bet against them. This is called “fading” the public and can prove to be a good betting strategy depending on the matchup in question – remember the house always wins.
Let’s say Oregon is playing Washington and the public is betting against the Ducks. You can choose to fade the public if you believe the Ducks are going to beat the Huskies because you’ve looked at our College Basketball Betting Trends page. If you’re right and Oregon wins, a fade was smart and you have our betting trends page to thank for it. Learn more about Betting Against the Public to know exactly how it works.
Our goal is to turn you into a College Basketball betting phenom or at least someone who doesn’t have to cross their fingers into oblivion with each bet.
