NCAAB Odds

College Basketball Game Odds

How Do Odds Work on NCAA Basketball?

The NCAAB odds are mainly in one of three formats: American, decimal, and fractional. The latter two are straightforward, though the American odds are the most used in sportsbooks. They manifest as either a negative number (e.g. -120) or a positive number (e.g. +105) to indicate the favorite and underdog, respectively.

College basketball -abbreviated as “NCAAB”- is the highest level of amateur basketball in North America. NCAA basketball is usually focused on Division-I, and there are plenty of NCAAB odds to bet on the sportsbook, from outrights to pregame lines. These college basketball odds are available all year, although most of it happens during the season, from October to the famous “March Madness”.

Betting Examples

Betting on the point spread can be trickier, since it deals with added and subtracted points.

The final result is North Carolina beating Duke 87-81. The winning bet is for North Carolina, since winning by six was enough to cover the 4½-point spread as favorites. A bet on Duke would’ve fallen short, as they would’ve needed to win outright or lose by less than five.

With the -115 odds, a bet of $115 would be needed to return $100. This is one of the most standard betting odds, although -110 is also common.
