Conference tournament opening odds released


Championship week in college basketball is fast approaching, and BetMGM has released odds for many of the top conference tournaments.

Some low-major conference tournaments have already begun, but the marquee leagues — the ones that produce multiple NCAA tournament bids — have their tournaments on tap for next week. Conference tournaments are crucial for teams on the bubble scratching and clawing to move on to March Madness, and for those whose only hope at playing in the tournament is an automatic berth from winning a conference tournament title.

As of Tuesday morning, BetMGM has odds for nine of the conference tournaments. And with the calendar now turned to March, the sportsbook said it is seeing “increased betting action” on college basketball. That will only increase as the month progresses.
