Play $50,000 ‘Bracket Madness’ At BetOnline.ag
The NCAA basketball tournament is one of the biggest betting events of the year. In particular, the upcoming weekend of action with the first two rounds of the tournament is the single biggest betting period of the year among sportsbooks with a US clientele. The Super Bowl may bring in more ‘one day’ action but the four days that comprise Rounds 1 and 2 of the NCAA basketball tournament brings in more betting revenue. Recent data suggests that the NCAA tournament generates nearly 50% more revenue than the Super Bowl.
The popularity of ‘March Madness’ continues to grow and the popularity of betting on the NCAA tournament is mind boggling. A study released by the American Gaming Association (AGA) suggests that 1 in 5 US adults will have a bet in some form on the NCAA tournament. That’s 40 million Americans who are expected to fill out a total of 149 million brackets. 18 million adults will be placing bets on the tournament with a bookmaker. The combined March Madness betting handle is expected to be around $8.5 billion US.
