March Madness gets underway! Place your online sportsbook …

This is it. 64 teams, two weeks, and one eventual National Champion crowned. Today’s March Madness games will be exploding right off the bat with potential wagers to be placed in some of our best online sportsbooks reviewed at, not too mention the kickoff of some exciting bracket action with friends and/or colleagues. Each round of the NCAA tournament will no doubt have you, me, and everyone else interested in basketball on the edge of their seat, anxiously awaiting the final outcomes after the opening round of 64. So for Thursday, I head to (read the review of after ditching work early (as many across the US have been reported doing) and I can’t wait for tip-off to begin in just a few short minutes. Hopefully you were more forward thinking with today’s bets than I, as I’ve just squeezed in my last online sports book bets 5 minutes before closing!

Having a bunch of great games in the college hoops brackets, it will certainly be a tough call wagering on tonight’s contests, and it would be difficult to suggest that at least one higher seeded team won’t go down today. I’m banking on the great run put forth by #10 seed Maryland in the ACC Tournament to overcome the #7 seeded California Golden Bears today, as well as VA Commonwealth to upset the up-and-down UCLA Bruins. Every now and then it’s fun to take a little risk betting on underdogs (no pun intended), but I figure that sometimes there’s no more fun to be had than a small wager on a potentially nice little payoff. No matter what wagering you look into for today’s games, you can be certain that they will all be closely contested and as exciting as all the March Madness games have been thus far. With my online wagers placed at (read the review of, I’m kicked back and ready for some great college hoops action. Besides, this is just so much better than slaving away at work!

If you are a sports fan, you certainly won’t want to miss out on today’s wagering opportunities, and hopefully you’ve gotten the chance to stop by one of our featured online sportsbooks and taken out a wager or two on college hoops today. Today will be the start of what will undoubtedly be a great weekend of NCAA tournament action, and I for one am looking forward to every minute of it. We’ll just have to wait and see how long it will be before my girlfriend yanks the TV out of the wall and throws it out the door. Oh well, it’s only once a year that March Madness comes around, and even if I have to sleep on the front porch tonight, it will be well worth the price of getting to watch some great NCAA tournament action. Enjoy the games, and we’ll catch you again tomorrow with more updates from the exciting world of sports.
