Sportsbooks are posting odds, futures, and prop bets faster than they ever have, and there are already a number of prop bets available to wager on for the 2017 NCAA Tournament. Below shows a bunch of early props starting from the Round of 64 at 5Dimes:
Will any #1-seed win their opening game by 40+ points?
Will all four #1-seeds win their opening game by double-digits?
Games decided by exactly 1 point in the entire tournament (Rd of 64 to Title Game):
Over 4.5 (+255)
Under 4.5 (-365)
Will any game go into overtime? (Rd of 64 to Title Game)
Games to go into overtime (Rd of 64 to Title Game):
Over 1.5 (-230)
Under 1.5 (+170)
Will there be a double-overtime game? (Rd of 64 to Title Game)
Will there be a buzzer-beater? (Rd of 64 to Title Game)
Will any conference have at least 6 teams in the Sweet 16?
Will any conference have at least 3 teams in the Elite 8?
Will any conference have at least 2 teams in the Final 4?
Although they’re both heavy chalk, it’s hard to imagine an entire tourney without a buzzer-beater (-265) or overtime game (-565) so those are probably worth a bet. However, we always recommend finding the best line around the market so don’t rush to make a wager if the line is too high.
