Villanova

A member of the Villanova pep band plays during the first half of a regional final men’s college basketball game in the NCAA Tournament between Kansas and Villanova, Saturday, March 26, 2016, in Louisville, Ky.

For sports bettors, the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament is a marathon.

Fail to prepare properly for the all-day trail of games running from next Thursday to next Sunday, and a gambler risks suffering the consequences. Without endurance, bettors won’t make it to the finish line, their bankrolls bound to tumble.

Luckily, the next five days create the ultimate crash course on tournament basketball. All the major conference tournaments get underway over the next two days and run through Saturday or Sunday, with several straggler mid-major brackets also playing out.

It makes it easy to get used to the pace that the biggest sports betting event of the year will demand.

The best way to join in on the action is to bet on a game-to-game basis, but there’s always attention dedicated to futures to win each the tournament. The Westgate Las Vegas Superbook has odds up for all the remaining tournaments, so we’ll keep with Talking Points tradition and try to find the best value in each of the major brackets.
