INDIANAPOLIS – The College basketball season is set to begin early on Wednesday afternoon after an extended offseason caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

College basketball was one of the first major sports betting events that that was canceled due to the pandemic as the March Madness Tournament was called off. This took a huge hit to college basketball as it is was said that they lost around $375 Million in revenue due to this.

From the sports betting perspective, the industry also took a huge hit as March Madness is easily the biggest sports betting event of the year. It was rumored that the industry lost $4 billion.

However, that is all in the past now as online sportsbooks will now see long-awaited action on the college basketball season.

They offer tons of different odds on the season such as odds on who will win the National Championship and even odds on the different conference winners as well.

Starting with the National Championship odds, Villanova is going into the season as the favorites to win after they finished last season as the number 10 ranked team in the country.

They also have the nation’s top recruiting class as well.
