I’m a little conservative when it comes to my investing. I don’t like big risks. I do my research and buy safe equities that I hope will give me steady returns. When it comes to betting college basketball, I’m the same way. I do my research and only bet on sure winners. But, as I’ve learned in investing and betting, there is no such thing as a sure winner. To increase my chances of winning though, I turn to one place, Covers.com. I never make a wager without checking the college basketball odds at Covers.com first.
Just a few weeks ago my buddy was over watching some games with me, a big Michigan guy. He was convinced that I made a bad bet. I was betting UCLA to beat the spread against Michigan. The spread was 9.5 points, the Bruins won by 18. I made a few hundred bucks. If my buddy would have checked the college basketball odds on Covers.com, like I did, he might have won some money also. While I was there I read the Game of the day article and learned that UCLA was hot. They just beat No. 1 Kentucky, and were shooting at 55 percent. The article was well researched and got right to the point. I don’t have time for long winded articles with very little information. That’s why Covers.com is always my first and last stop when I want to know the real story.
The snow is starting to fly where I live, and that can only mean one thing, March Madness is just around the corner. This is the time of the year when I start following the March Madness Odds on Covers.com. I know they will change quite a bit between now and March, but it pays to be on top of things. Like my investing, I don’t like to go with my “gut,” I want cold hard facts. After all, I work hard for my money. Most people would respond by saying, “Then you shouldn’t gamble it away.” And they’re probably right, but I would tell them “Information is power.” So knowing the up to date March Madness odds are the best way I know, to reduce the risk on my March Madness bets.
