2019 March Madness Odds In NJ For Every Team: Midwest Region

March 20, 2019
March Madness odds midwest UNC

March Madness is here and you can now legally bet on the games in New Jersey for the first time in the history of the NCAA Tournament.

The top NJ online and mobile sportsbooks are ready and willing to take all your action on the games. However, you’d better arm yourself with a little college basketball betting knowledge first.

We’ve put together a guide to help you make better picks. It’s a region-by-region list of betting tips on each of this year’s March Madness competitors.

Other regions:

Here’s a look at the NCAA’s Midwest Region No. 1 through No. 16 seeds, including the current odds on each team to win it all:

No. 1 North Carolina

North Carolina beat Duke twice this year in the regular season, but Zion Williamson didn’t really play in either contest. He was back for the ACC tournament semifinal where Duke beat North Carolina by a single point. As the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region, the Tar Heels won’t have to face Duke again until the championship game. The majority of brackets filled out across the country will likely have both teams meeting there.

No. 2 Kentucky

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +1300
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +1700
  • BetStars NJ +1200

Kentucky put together an impressive 27 win season. However, Tennessee has beaten the Wildcats twice already this month, including a win in the SEC tournament. Fortunately for the Wildcats, they won’t have to meet the Vols until at least the Final Four. However, they will have to get through a tough Midwest Region to get there. This region includes top-seeded North Carolina, and two teams with 30-plus wins: New Mexico State and Houston.

No 3. Houston

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +4000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +4800
  • BetStars NJ +4000

The Houston Cougars looked like a lock to win the American Athletic Conference Tournament. Then, just like they did last year, the Cincinnati Bearcats beat Houston in the championship game. The team still finished with a 31-3 record on the season, tied for the most wins in the nation with Buffalo.

No. 4 Kansas

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +6000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +6000
  • BetStars NJ +5000

Kansas is coming off a loss to a surprising Iowa State team in the Big 12 Conference tournament. Experts across the country are now saying Kansas may be ripe for an early upset in the tournament. The question is can All-American Dedric Lawson carry the team through a tough Midwest Region that contains a dangerous North Carolina team?

No. 5 Auburn

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +4500
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +4000
  • BetStars NJ +4000

This Auburn Tigers team beat a red-hot Tennessee team to win the SEC tournament title. Other SEC teams like Tennessee and Kentucky are seeded above Auburn, which could be just the motivation this team needs to run deep. It’ll be a tough start though, as they face a 30-win New Mexico State team in the first round of a challenging Midwest Region.

No. 6 Iowa State

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +5000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +4200
  • BetStars NJ +3300

The Iowa State Cyclones became the lowest-seeded team ever to win the Big 12 Conference tournament this year. They upset a higher-seeded Kansas team in the final and higher-seeded Baylor and top-seeded Kansas State teams to get there. The glass slipper may fit right here at Iowa State as the Cyclones appear poised for a deep run as a No. 6 seed.

No. 7 Wofford

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +10000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +10000
  • BetStars NJ +12500

The Wofford Terriers won the Southeastern Conference and tournament this year. You won’t be able to bet on Wofford’s first-round game against Seton Hall in NJ. However, the entire NJ sports betting industry will be pulling for the team’s Fletcher Magee to become the NCAA career leader in 3-pointers Thursday night for one reason or another. If Magee gets it done and the Terriers beat the Pirates, there will be no more betting restrictions on March Madness games in NJ this year.

No. 8 Utah State

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +15000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +16000
  • BetStars NJ +50000

Utah State won the Mountain West tournament this year after they beat the San Diego State team in the final that managed to oust top-seeded Nevada. The Aggies are looking to continue a 10-game winning streak heading into March Madness.

No. 9 Washington

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +25000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +19000
  • BetStars NJ +20000

Washington was the top seed in the Pac-12 tournament but lost to upstart Oregon in the final. In fact, the Ducks beat them in a 20-point blowout. Now, the Huskies are a No. 9 seed, which could be facing the North Carolina Tar Heels in the second round, if they make it that far.

No. 10 Seton Hall

(Off the board)

Seton Hall is one of two teams in the tournament you can’t bet on or against in New Jersey. Everybody loves the Pirates, but it would be a shame to have the school make a deep run putting a bit of a damper on the first year of legal March Madness betting in NJ.

No. 11 Ohio State

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +25000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +19000
  • BetStars NJ +35000

There’s no shame in losing to Michigan State in the Big Ten tournament, and that’s exactly what Ohio State did this year. The Buckeyes were a team on the bubble heading into Selection Sunday and they remain there, headed into a first-round game with the red-hot Iowa State Cyclones.

No. 12 New Mexico State

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +25000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +24000
  • BetStars NJ +25000

New Mexico State won the Western Athletic Conference and the WAC tournament this year. Now, they’re a 30-win No. 12 seed and looking to make noise behind a well-rounded team that hasn’t lost since January. In fact, the Aggies come into the NCAA Tournament on a massive 19-game winning streak.

No. 13 Northeastern

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +35000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +50000
  • BetStars NJ +100000

Can a Northeastern team that upset top-seeded Hofstra to win the CAA Tournament and an NCAA Tournament bid be this year’s Cinderella? They’ve got Kansas, and all the potential in the world heading into the first round. Don’t sleep on a Huskies team that has won 12 of their last 13.

No. 14 Georgia State

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +50000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +25000
  • BetStars NJ +50000

Georgia State won the Sun Belt Conference and tournament this season. Now they face a 30-plus win Houston team in the first round that’s looking to prove they are for real. If the Panthers hit shots, they’ll be in the game.

No. 15 Abilene Christian

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +100000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +100000
  • BetStars NJ +250000

Never heard of the Abilene Christian Wildcats? They came second in the Southland Conference this year and won the tournament. Now they face a blue-blooded Kentucky team in the first round looking well beyond just the first round.

No. 16 Iona

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +75000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +70000
  • BetStars NJ +100000

Iona won the MAAC and its season-ending tournament this year. The Gaels are a No. 16 seed and will have to face a daunting No. 1 seeded North Carolina squad in the first round. No one gives this team a realistic shot at advancing, considering just one No. 16 seed has won in more than 135 tries.

2019 March Madness Odds In NJ For Every Team: West Region

March 20, 2019
March madness odds west region Gonzaga

March Madness is here. You can now legally bet on the games in New Jersey for the first time in the history of the NCAA tournament.

The top NJ online and mobile sportsbooks are ready and willing to take all your action on the games. However, should arm yourself with a little college basketball betting knowledge first.

We’ve put together a guide to help you make better choices. It’s a region-by-region list of betting tips on each of this year’s March Madness competitors.

Other regions:

Here’s a look at the West Region’s No. 1 through No. 16 seed teams, including the current odds on each team to win it all:

No. 1 Gonzaga

Gonzaga took over the top spot AP Top 25 Poll: Week 17 college basketball rankings in February and held on to it through the end of the regular season.

However, the Bulldogs fell to fourth in the final poll released March 18 thanks to a loss to Saint Mary’s in the West Coast Conference tournament final. Gonzaga is still a No. 1 seed, but it may be faltering at the wrong time of the year.

No. 2 Michigan

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +2000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +2200
  • BetStars NJ +1600

The Michigan Wolverines made it to the 2018 NCAA Tournament Championship game before losing. The team has done almost everything it could to get back there this season, except beat fierce state rival Michigan State. In fact, the Wolverines have lost to the Spartans three times, including the Big Ten tournament title game.

Michigan, now in the West Region, and won’t have to face Michigan State again until the Final Four. However, it will have to get through top-seeded Gonzaga, and another 30-plus win team in Buffalo first. Plus, there’s a strong likelihood they will meet a 29-4 Nevada team in the second round, and that could spell trouble.

No. 3 Texas Tech

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +3000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +3300
  • BetStars NJ +2200

Texas Tech was upset by West Virginia in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 Tournament. However, just like it did in a run to the Elite Eight in the NCAA Tournament last year, the team plays tough defense. We all know defense wins championships, so don’t count out another deep run for the Red Raiders this year.

No. 4 Florida State

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +4000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +6500
  • BetStars NJ +3300

Florida State shocked top-seeded Virginia en route to an Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) tournament championship game appearance. Then Duke rained on its parade in the final. This marks the third-straight NCAA Tournament appearance for the Seminoles. In fact, head coach Leonard Hamilton has taken the team to the tournament seven times since he took over the program in 2002, the most of any coach in school history.

No. 5 Marquette

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +8000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +10000
  • BetStars NJ +6600

The Marquette Golden Eagles put together a 24-9 record this season. They fell to Seton Hall in the Big East Tournament. However, junior guard Markus Howard averaged averages 25.1 points per game this year en route to Big East Player of the Year honors and is just the kind of player who can have a big impact on March Madness games.

No. 6 Buffalo

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +10000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +10000
  • BetStars NJ +10000

Buffalo beat Bowling Green to win the Mid-American Conference tournament title. This season marked the first ever that the Buffalo Bulls were nationally ranked. They finished the season at No. 18 with a 31-3 record and designs on shocking the world come March Madness.

No. 7 Nevada

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +6000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +7000
  • BetStars NJ +8000

The Nevada Wolf Pack would probably have been seeded higher if they had managed to win the Mountain West Tournament. However, top-seeded Nevada lost to San Diego State in the semifinals. Now, Nevada is a seven seed that will have to face a tough Florida team in the first round, and most likely Michigan in the second. The team’s 29-4 record this year tied a program high and they have even higher hopes, despite a tough road to the Sweet 16 ahead.

No. 8 Syracuse

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +15000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +16000
  • BetStars NJ +8000

The Syracuse Orange ran into the Duke juggernaut in the ACC tournament. Now they’re in the West Region with Gonzaga and looking to prove even the ACC also-rans are tough to beat.

No. 9 Baylor

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +25000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +19000
  • BetStars NJ +35000

Baylor is another school where the women’s program seems to be outshining the men these days. In fact, this Baylor men’s team has been pretty much playing out the string since losing its best player, Tristan Clark, to a season-ending injury in January. Do you hear that? Yes, it’s the sound of people writing Syracuse into the second round on brackets across the country.

No. 10 Florida

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +20000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +18000
  • BetStars NJ +15000

Florida lost to Auburn on its way to a shocking SEC Tournament title win. A No. 10 seed, the Gators will make a bid to be this year’s Cinderella behind the play of a talented backcourt.

No. 11 Arizona State/St. John’s

Arizona State

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +30000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +25000
  • BetStars NJ +35000

Arizona State finished second in the Pac-12, then lost in overtime to a surprising Oregon team in the Pac-12 tournament. Now they’re trying to play their way into a first-round matchup with a 30-win Buffalo team that is looking well beyond that game. By the way, Arizona State’s coach is former Bulls coach and Duke legend Bobby Hurley.

St. John’s

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +35000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +25000
  • BetStars NJ +35000

At press time, St. John’s still needed to beat Arizona State to get into the first round of the NCAA Tournament and a game with a 30-win Buffalo team that will be tough to beat. This is what happens to seven-seeds in the Big East Tournament that lost to Marquette by more than 30.

No. 12 Murray State

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +25000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +20000
  • BetStars NJ +20000

Murray State is a No. 12 seed looking to become Cinderella behind the stellar play of 6-foot-3 sophomore guard Ja Morant. Morant is averaging a stellar 24.6 points and 10 assists per game this year, and he is projected to be on of the top three picks in the upcoming NBA Draft. A deep March Madness run can only make his stock go up.

No. 13 Vermont

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +50000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +25000
  • BetStars NJ +100000

Vermont won the America East Conference and tournament this year. The Catamounts’ reward is a matchup with a Florida State team that made it to the final of the ACC tournament, a conference that spawned three No. 1 seeds this year. Can you say Cinderella?

No. 14 Northern Kentucky

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +50000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +50000
  • BetStars NJ +50000

Here comes Northern Kentucky, winners of the Horizon League and Horizon League tournament. It’s The Norse’s second NCAA bid in three years and the truth is, they’re just happy not to have to play Kentucky in the first round.

No. 15 Montana

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +50000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +50000
  • BetStars NJ +100000

Montana won the Big Sky Conference and tournament this season. The Grizzlies now face Michigan in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. However, experts say the Wolverines may be the weakest No. 2 seed in the field, giving Montana at least a shot at the upset.

No. 16 Fairleigh Dickinson Knights

(Off the board)

New Jersey law doesn’t allow bets on Fairleigh Dickinson games. The Knights played their way into the first round with a win against Prairie View A&M. Now Gonzaga and a likely loss awaits.

2019 March Madness Odds In NJ For Every Team: South Region

March 19, 2019
March madness odds south region

March Madness is here. You can now legally bet on the games in New Jersey for the first time in the history of the NCAA Tournament.

The top NJ online and mobile sportsbooks are ready and willing to take all your action on the games. However, you should arm yourself with a little college basketball betting knowledge first.

We’ve put together a guide to help you make better picks. It’s a region-by-region list of betting tips on each of this year’s March Madness competitors.

Other regions:

Here’s a look at the South Region’s No. 1 through No. 16 seed teams, including the current odds on each team to win it all:

No. 1 Virginia

Virginia makes it three No. 1 seeds from the American Athletic Conference (AAC) Tournament. Of course, Virginia was the top seed in the ACC this year and fell to No. 4 Florida State. Plus, this is much the same team that lost to UMBC in the first round of the 2018 NCAA Tournament, becoming the first-ever No. 1 seed to bow out to a No. 16 seed. It’s a good bet that there will be less action from Virginia this year than any other No. 1 seed in history. No one wants to bet against them, but bettors will also want to avoid getting burned again.

No. 2 Tennessee

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +1700
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +1600
  • BetStars NJ +1400

Tennessee beat Kentucky again en route to a place in the SEC Tournament title game where glory and a spot as a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament seemed inevitable. Then the Volunteers lost to fifth-seeded Auburn in the SEC tourney final. Now, Tennessee is a No. 2 in the South where Virginia — and teams like the defending champion Villanova Wildcats — stand in their way of a trip to the Final Four.

No 3. Purdue

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +3300
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +3500
  • BetStars NJ +3300

Purdue shared the Big Ten Championship with Michigan State but lost to Minnesota in the quarterfinals. They did beat Michigan State once this season and the Boilermakers are making the school’s fifth-consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance this year.

No. 4 Kansas State

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +6000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +6500
  • BetStars NJ +6600

The Kansas State Wildcats earned the top seed in the Big 12 Conference tournament this year, only to play victim to upset winner Iowa State. The big reason why appears to be an injury to senior forward Dean Wade, who sat out the Big 12 and may be out for March Madness as well. Wade is averaging almost 13 points and more than six assists this year and is a big part of what they do.

No. 5 Wisconsin

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +15000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +13000
  • BetStars NJ +10000

Wisconsin ended a decent regular season by running into Michigan State in the Big Ten tournament. Now they’ll have to face a red-hot, PAC-12-winning Oregon team in the first round.

No. 6 Villanova

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +3300
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +3500
  • BetStars NJ +4000

The Villanova Wildcats are the defending national champions. They won the Big East Conference and tournament titles this year. However, the Wildcats are lowly No. 6 seed and will have to face a West Coast Conference tournament-winning, Gonzaga-slaying Saint Mary’s team in the first round. The good news is, if they can avoid helping Saint Mary’s become Cinderella this year, the path to the big dance goes through a suspect Virginia team in the South Region.

No. 7 Cincinnati

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +10000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +10000
  • BetStars NJ +8000

For the second year in a row, the underdog Cincinnati Bearcats beat a 30-plus win Houston team to win the AAC Tournament. Now, it’s up to Cincinnati to show the country the glass slipper fits, and they can win a few NCAA Tournament games as well.

No. 8 Mississippi

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +25000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +19000
  • BetStars NJ +25000

The Ole Miss Rebels got beat by a lower-seeded Alabama team in the SEC Tournament. Now, Mississippi is a 20-win No. 8 seed facing Oklahoma in a battle of up-and-down teams with a date with No. 1 Virginia likely to follow.

No. 9 Oklahoma

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +20000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +18000
  • BetStars NJ +30000

Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweeping down the plain. The Sooners were a Big 12 tournament who also-ran this year and got beat in a 1-point game by lower-seeded West Virginia. They are No. 9 seed now, but lucky enough to be in the region where a suspect Virginia team is the No. 1 seed.

No. 1o Iowa

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +20000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +19000
  • BetStars NJ +15000

Iowa was ousted from the Big Ten tournament this year by a higher-seeded Michigan team. The Hawkeyes’ Nicholas Baer is the only senior on the team and the only player with even a minute of NCAA Tournament game experience.

No. 11 St. Mary’s

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +25000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +19000
  • BetStars NJ +35000

The search for Cinderella may start and end with St. Mary’s as the Gaels have already upset top-ranked Gonzaga this year, ending the country’s longest winning streak and the Zags’ six-year hold on the West Coast Conference tournament. Now they face defending champs Villanova in the first round with a chance to be anointed the bell of the ball already.

No. 12 Oregon

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +25000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +13000
  • BetStars NJ +15000

The Oregon Ducks won eight straight games to end the season. This included four games in four days to win the Pac-12 tournament. The Ducks beat Arizona State in overtime to get to the final and handled a top-seeded Washington team in the final. Oregon may be the hottest team in college basketball right now and sitting in a region that runs through a suspect top-seeded Virginia team as well.

No. 13 UC Irvine

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +35000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +25000
  • BetStars NJ +100000

UC Irvine won the Big West Conference and tournament this year. The Anteaters are a veteran team on a 16-game winning streak looking to play this year’s Cinderella.

No. 14 Old Dominion

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +50000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +25000
  • BetStars NJ +50000

Old Dominion won the Conference USA regular season and tournament. Monarchs coach Jeff Jones is currently battling prostate cancer. This marks the first NCAA Tournament appearance for Old Dominion since 2011.

No. 15 Colgate

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +100000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +100000
  • BetStars NJ +200000

Colgate won the Patriot League and its tournament this season. Now, they face a Tennessee team that has hovered around the top of the college basketball rankings all year. Colgate has the momentum of an 11-game winning streak heading into the tournament, but that’s about it.

No. 16 Gardner-Webb

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +100000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +100000
  • BetStars NJ +250000

Gardner-Webb won the Big South tournament and now has a chance to be this year’s UMBC. UMBC became the first No. 16 seed to beat a No. 1 last year when they upset Virginia. Virginia is a No. 1 seed again, despite falling to No. 4 Florida State in the ACC Tournament. Now, they’ll play Gardner-Webb, and there’s at least an outside chance they can be upset again.

2019 March Madness Odds In NJ For Every Team: East Region

March 19, 2019
March Madness odds East region copy

March Madness is here. You can now legally bet on the games in New Jersey for the first time in the history of the NCAA Tournament.

The top NJ online and mobile sportsbooks are ready and willing to take all your action on the games. First, you should arm yourself with a little college basketball betting knowledge.

We’ve put together a guide to help you make better picks. It’s a region-by-region list of betting tips on each of this year’s March Madness competitors.

Other regions:

Here’s a look at the East Region’s No. 1 through No. 16 seed teams, including the current odds on each team to win it all:

No. 1 Duke

Duke is the odds on favorite to win it all this year. This is mostly because the ACC Tournament winning team is led by Zion Williamson and R.J. Barrett, who are two projected to go first and second in the 2019 NBA Draft.

No. 2 Michigan State

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +1700
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +1400
  • BetStars NJ +1600

Michigan State beat fierce state rival Michigan three times this season, including a victory in the Big Ten Tournament title game. The Spartans were one of only two teams in major conferences to win a conference title and tournament. However, not only did the NCAA selection committee snub the school by not making it a No. 1 seed, it made them a No. 2 in the East, where Duke is No. 1. The snub may well light a fire in the bellies of the Spartans.

No 3. LSU

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +5000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +4000
  • BetStars NJ +6600

This LSU Tigers team lost to Florida in the Southeastern Conference tournament quarterfinals dropping it from ninth in the AP Top 25 Poll to 12th. However, that’s the highest ranking an LSU team has achieved since 2000 when it was 10th. The last time the Tigers were even ranked on a season-ending AP Poll they were 21st in 2009. The time before that, LSU was ranked 19th in 2006 and made the Final Four.

No. 4 Virginia Tech

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +3000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +4900
  • BetStars NJ +6000

Virginia Tech was another one of Florida State’s victims in the ACC Tournament this year. As the tournament begins, the Hokies welcome back the 14.4 points and 5.5 assists per game Justin Robinson once provided, before he sat out for 12 games with a foot injury. Robinson is just the kind of ball handle, driver and shooter who can have a big impact on the NCAA Tournament.

No. 5 Mississippi State

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +10000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +12000
  • BetStars NJ +12000

This program has been outshined by the success of the school’s women’s basketball team. However, the Mississippi State Bulldogs men’s basketball team is making an appearance in the NCAA Tournament for this first time in a decade this year. Mississippi State has not reached the third round of the tournament since 1996, but they’ve got a shot now.

No. 6 Maryland

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +15000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +16000
  • BetStars NJ +10000

Maryland put together a 22-10 record this season but continued to disappoint when anything significant was on the line. They lost to a No. 13 seeded Nebraska in the Big Ten Tournament and haven’t actually won a Big Ten or an NCAA Tournament game since 2016. Now, they’ll play the winner of a play-in game between No. 11 seeds Belmont and Temple and hope to turn things around against a team headed in a different direction at the moment.

No. 7 Louisville

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +8000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +10000
  • BetStars NJ +6600

Louisville is yet another ACC also-ran looking to prove they are no easy out. The Cardinals are favorites to win a first-round game this year, but not much else.

No. 8 VCU

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +20000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +19000
  • BetStars NJ +35000

VCU earned the top seed in the Atlantic 10 Tournament and was cruising toward the title and an automatic NCAA Tournament bid when they lost a game and their best player. The VCU Rams lost to the eighth-seeded Rhode Island Rams in the tournament final. Plus, all Atlantic 10 guard Marcus Evans went down with an injury during the loss. Now, VCU is a No. 8 seed who will likely have to face Duke in the second round if they get out of the first.

No. 9 UCF

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +20000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +15000
  • BetStars NJ +17500

UCF earned the first NCAA Tournament at-large bid in school history this year. It has been 14 years since the Knights were in an NCAA tourney game. Unfortunately, in all of the school’s previous four NCAA appearances, UFC lost in the first round.

No. 10 Minnesota

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +30000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +19000
  • BetStars NJ +30000

The Final Four is in its home state this year, but the Minnesota Golden Gophers have a tough row to hoe if they want to get there. Minnesota has won exactly one NCCA Tournament game since 1997 when they made a run to the Final Four. That’s a run that has since been vacated by the NCAA for various violations associated with an academic fraud scandal.

No. 11 Belmont/Temple

Belmont

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +35000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +16000
  • BetStars NJ +50000

The Belmont Bruins will have to play their way into the first round with a matchup against the Temple Owls. The good news is they face Maryland if they can do it; Maryland can be beaten.

Temple

  • BetStars NJ +50000

No. 12 Liberty

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +35000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +25000
  • BetStars NJ +100000

Give me Liberty, or give me death. Liberty gave top-seed Lipscomb death in the final of the Atlantic Sun Tournament to win its way into the NCAA Tournament. Now, Liberty faces death at the hands of a No. 3 seed Virginia Tech who’s looking to survive and advance.

No. 13 St. Louis

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +50000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +25000
  • BetStars NJ +75000

  • FanDuel Sportsbook +25000
  • BetStars NJ +100000

No. 15 Bradley

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +50000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +25000
  • BetStars NJ +200000

No. 16 North Carolina Central/ North Dakota State

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +100000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +100000
  • BetStars NJ +250000

North Carolina Central faces North Dakota State in a First Four matchup with the No. 1-overall seeded Duke Blue Devils waiting in the wings to crush either team. An upset win in the MEAC Tournament can’t do much for them now.

North Dakota State

  • DraftKings Sportsbook +100000
  • FanDuel Sportsbook +100000
  • BetStars NJ +50000

North Dakota State is making the school’s third NCAA Tournament appearance in the past six years, sort of. The team will have to play its way into the first round against North Carolina Central. Then, the No. 1-overall seeded Duke Blue Devils await.

The 2019 NJ Online Sportsbook Tournament Bracket Championship

March 11, 2019

The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament will be as exciting as it ever in New Jersey this year.

That’s because of the plethora of NJ online and mobile sportsbooks now available to anyone with an internet connection.

The list of operational NJ mobile sportsbook market is now up to 13. Plus, there are more on the way.

Therefore, in the spirit of March Madness, NJ Gambling Websites has decided to rank NJ mobile sportsbooks from No. 1 to No. 8 and place them in a March Madness-style bracket.

However, ALL OF YOU will decide the tournament fate of each NJ online sports app.

Throughout the next few weeks, we’re going to create polls on our PlayNJ Twitter Page to determine the winners of each match-up… and ultimately the overall champion.



But first, let’s take a closer look at our top four seeds.

Check below for detailed descriptions of all the new player bonuses and March Madness promos the top-ranked mobile sportsbooks in the state have to offer.

Plus, discover why these particular  NJ mobile sportsbooks rose to prominence and how they’re planning to stay there.

No. 1: DraftKings Sportsbook

DraftKings Sportsbook gave itself a head start on the rest of the NJ mobile sportsbook market by launching first. It quickly became the top-grossing sportsbook in the state and still holds that position now.

However, the reason it’s the No. 1 seed is clearly the user-friendly nature of its software. DraftKings Sportsbook employs software with its own sports betting language that is far easier to follow than most typical sports betting jargon. The app asks questions of its users and turns the answers into bets. Users have what seems like a simple two-way conversation about a wager and the traditionally complicated process of placing a bet is transformed.

It’s an innovative approach to sports betting that goes beyond just posting the odds and the numbers prove its working.

DraftKings Sportsbook has all kinds of sports and bet types available and the lines are competitive enough that the app appeals to hardcore sports bettors. However, its unique approach to betting is clearly drawing in novices as well.

The app is also as quick and responsive as any on the market.

Signing up is a simple process, and if you do it through this exclusive DraftKings Sportsbook link, and you’ll get $25 in free bets. Plus, DraftKings Sportsbook will match your first bet up to $500 when you make a deposit.

Additionally, partner Resorts Casino Hotel is running a free-to-enter bracket challenge out of TDraftKings Sportsbook at Resorts retail sports betting operation. There’s $1 million up for grabs if you can pick all 63 March Madness games correctly and various other prizes available for advancing to the Sweet 16, Elite Eight, and Final Four with a perfect bracket.

DraftKings Sportsbook is currently dominating the mobile sportsbook market and would have to be considered the No. 1 seed in any legitimate ranking.

No. 2: BetStars

BetStars is the No. 2 seed on the NJ mobile sportsbook market side of the bracket primarily because it leads the league in promotions.

Sign up for an account through this exclusive BetStars NJ link, and you’ll be entitled to up to $500 in free bets.

BetStars will match your first bet up to $50. Then, they’ll give you another $50 in free bets every time you bet an additional $150 until you’ve reached $500 in free bets.

But there’s more. In March, BetStars is offering the following promotions:

  • Tuesday Sports Free Bet: Place a bet between 6 and 7 pm on Tuesdays and get a free bet up to $100.
  • Bet of the Day Challenge: Complete a daily challenge and win up to $1,000 in free bets.
  • Bet $25, Get a $5 Free Bet: Bet $25 throughout the week and get a $5 free bet.
  • Protect Your Bet from Late Goals: Get a refund of up to $20 if a late goal turns your bet into a loser.
  • Up to 100 Percent Added to Winnings: A parlay bonus adding a free bets bonus to all winning parlays with three or more legs.

  • Bet $50, Get $50: Bet $50 on an NBA game on Friday and get a $50 In-Game free bet.
  • Lock in your Profits: A cash-out option to ensure you get paid before a comeback turns a winning bet into a loser.

A solid No. 2 seed

Don’t be surprised if BetStars eventually runs one, but so far there’s no word on a March Madness promotion.

Other than that, the app features easy-to-use software and a massive menu of sports and betting options.

Add it up, and BetStars is a solid No. 2 seed in the NJ mobile sports betting market.

No. 3: FanDuel Sportsbook

FanDuel Sportsbook is the online and mobile arm of NJ’s top-grossing retail sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook at the Meadowlands.

It’s no surprise to see FanDuel as the No. 3 seed, considering how easy the app is to navigate and how welcoming it is to both novice and expert bettors.

There have been a few hiccups with the lines, but FanDuel Sportsbook is now settling into a spot among the top NJ mobile sportsbooks.

FanDuel’s daily fantasy sports site ran a massive free-to-enter NCAA brackets contest in 2018, so don’t be surprised to see FanDuel Sportsbook take up that mantle this year.

The site already runs a plethora of promotions, including one for college basketball regular season games. FanDuel Sportsbook’s College Basketball Halftime Insurance gives players up to $25 in site credit back if any moneyline bet lost when the team held a halftime lead.

Additionally, FanDuel Sportsbook offers new players signing up for an account through our FanDuel Sportsbook link a $500 risk-free bet. It comes in the form of a refund of up to $500 if you lose your first real-money bet.

The app is user-friendly, and the betting process is simple and well laid out. All factors that help make FanDuel Sportsbook the No.3 seed in the NJ mobile sports betting market.

No. 4: Caesars Sportsbook

The No. 4 seed in any March Madness bracket may not wow anybody, but it should be a solid performer that is grounded and consistent. Caesars Sportsbook fits in well in this spot.

Its promotions include only the standard stuff.  New players who sign up using the promo code BETFREE10 will get $10 in free bets with no deposit required. Plus, a 100 percent, first-deposit bonus of up to $300.

Caesars Sportsbook and online casino are completely integrated. Players share a wallet, making the transition between sports betting and casino games completely seamless.

Caesars has all the college basketball standards covered as well. That means Caesars will post competitive lines on all March Madness games. Plus, in-game betting will be available as well as NCAA basketball futures.

All in all, Caesars Sportsbook isn’t a No. 1 seed quite yet. However, it is a solid performer that displays the kind of consistency you should expect from a No. 4 seed in the NJ mobile sports betting market.

Finding The Biggest Jackpots Playing Slots On Caesars

March 6, 2019

You may enjoy a particular slot’s theme, its soundtrack, or think it has great graphics. But if you’re really being honest, your favorite slot is actually the one you’ve won the most money playing.

Who can blame you? After all, the number one reason we all play slots is the chance to win a big jackpot. If you ever claimed one, the slot where you won it will always hold a special place in your heart.

When it comes to slots, jackpot size matters and the slots with the biggest jackpots are almost always the most popular at NJ gambling websites.

As a result, when it came time to write about finding the best slots on Caesars Online Casino we decided to focus on the ones that offer the biggest jackpots.

Caesars Casino & Sports boast a rather large library of more than 440 different online slots and plenty offer the chance at a big payday.

With over 400 slots to go through, it might take all day to check the maximum payouts for all of Caesars’ online slots looking for the biggest jackpots. Thankfully, Caesars makes finding its best slots so much easier than that.

Finding the best paying slots at Caesars Online Casino

It’s easy to find a list of all the slot titles available at Caesars Casino & Sports.

At the top of the page, below the site’s rolling promotions and advertising banner, you’ll find seven game-type tabs. The second one from the left is labeled ‘SLOTS‘.

Click it and the more than 440 title tiles for Caesars’ online slots will be revealed. Each one is a link to not only information about the game, but the game itself.

Alternatively, on the right-hand side of the page, you’ll find a search box. Try typing in the name of any slot you’ve ever hit it big on playing at a casino and hit enter.

Chances are Caesars has an online version of the slot you can start playing immediately.

However, the best way to find the biggest slot jackpots on Caesars is to go back to the ‘SLOTS‘ tab and begin scrolling through the 440-plus title tiles.

Then just keep your eyes peeled for one of three things:

  • A black banner on the tile with a dollar figure in the middle, identifying the game as a MegaJackpot slot
  • A white banner on the tile with gold lettering spelling out the word ‘JACKPOT GAME
  • A red banner on the tile with white lettering spelling out the word ‘PROGRESSIVE

Here’s a look at some of the Megajackpot, Jackpot, and Progressive slots you’ll find searching this way on Caesars Casino & Sports:

MegaJackpots Siberian Storm

MegaJackpots Siberian Storm has a black banner on its title tile with a dollar figure in the middle. In late-February 2019 that dollar figure was a whopping $545,000.

That means you could win more than a half a million dollars playing MegaJackpots Siberian Storm on Caesars Casino & Sports.

MegaJackpots Siberian Storm was developed by IGT and features its five-reel hexagonal MultiWay Xtra paylines promising 720 ways to win. And of course, a massive progressive jackpot.

Look for the five MegaJackpots Siberian Storm symbols to trigger a progressive jackpot win and pay no attention to the fact the game has an 88.99 percent RTP as you chase that half-million-dollar payday.

Divine Fortune

Divine Fortune has a white banner on its title tile with gold lettering spelling out the word ‘JACKPOT GAME’. It is a Greek mythology-themed, five-row, three-reel, and 20-payline slot designed by NetEnt.

The game features a trio of progressive jackpots. Plus, it has a reputation for paying out some of the biggest jackpots in NJ gambling website history.

One Red Cent Deluxe

One Red Cent Deluxe has a red banner on its title tile with white lettering spelling out the word ‘PROGRESSIVE’. That means the game features a progressive jackpot any player can win.

One Red Cent Deluxe is a three-reel, 32-payline online slot developed by Everi.

Red Cent symbols trigger a bonus game giving you a chance to click on a series of doors with various coins and multipliers behind them.

Plus, make maximums bets and finding five Red Cent symbols will give you a progressive jackpot win.

How To Find The Best Table Games At Caesars Online Casino

March 5, 2019

Caesars Casino & Sports is built for traditional casino game players with five online blackjack games and seven different online roulette titles to choose from. However, there is a small selection of alternative online table games on Caesars as well.

For the most part, the returns alternative table games offer at most NJ gambling websites are nothing to write home about.

However, the pair of alternative online table games on Caesars have RTPs that stand well above low-returning slots and sit much closer to high-value games like blackjack.

Here’s how they look:

Three-Card Poker: 96.93 percent

Let It Ride: 96.49 percent

How to find the games

You should have no problem finding the table games selection at Caesars Casino & Sports.

Just below the site’s rolling promotions and advertising banner at the top of the page, you should see seven different game-type tabs.

Caesars has the sixth one from the left, or second from the right, simply labeled ‘TABLE GAMES.‘ Click on it to reveal Caesars’ two alternative online table game title tiles.

Each one is not only a pathway to more information about the game but a link to the game itself.

Alternatively, over on the right-hand side of the page, you can search for any game title you like through the search box. If the game you’re looking for is available at Caesars Casino & Sports, you’ll find it here.

For now, however, the list of alternative online table games on Caesars includes just Three-Card Poker and Let It Ride.

Caesars Casino & Sports online table games

Here’s a more detailed look at the alternative online table games on Caesars:

Three-Card Poker

Caesars Casino & Sports’ online Three-Card Poker is an electronic version of the same fast-paced casino card game you find under that name at brick and mortar casinos across the country.

As a player, your job is to make a better poker hand than the dealer does. Players make an ‘ante’ wager and the dealer passes out three cards each.

After looking at his or her cards, a player can choose to either fold or continue. Players must put out a ‘play’ wager equal to the ante to continue. Then it’s showtime.

There are two ways to win. Either the dealer has less than queen-high, or the dealer has queen-high or better and the player’s hand is best.

Caesars pays all winning bets at 1-to-1 and a tie is a push.

Caesars Casino & Sports’ online Three-Card Poker also offers two optional side bets.

The Pair Plus side bet pays if the player’s hand is a pair or better. Caesars pays out the 6 Card Bonus side bet based on the value of the best 5-card hand, combining the dealer’s and player’s cards. Payouts start at three-of-a-kind.

Let It Ride

Caesars Casino & Sports’ online Let It Ride is another fast-paced casino card game exactly like Let It Ride at land-based casinos. Here, the player’s goal is to make the best five-card poker hand.

In Let It Ride, players use three cards of their own and two community cards.

Players place three equal parts of a bet on three spots on the table. The dealers put two community cards down on the table and deals out three cards to the player.

The dealer then offers the players two opportunities to take back one or two-thirds of the bet. Players can fold and take back two-thirds of the bet after the cards are dealt.

Finally, players can fold and take back the final third of the bet after the first community card is turned face up.

After that, if the player continues, the second community card is turned face up and player’s get paid according to Caesars Casino & Sports’ payout table. Payouts are based on the strength of the five-card hand and start with a pair of tens.

Caesars Casino & Sports’ Let It Ride also offers an optional Three-Card Bonus side bet that pays based on the strength of the player’s initial three cards.

Tips For Winning Your 2019 March Madness Bracket Pool

February 28, 2019

The American Gaming Association estimates approximately 10 percent of Americans over the age of 21 fill out an NCAA bracket every year. Then they pay to enter it in a pool at the office or a local bar or social club.

These paid pools are a form of sports betting that is against the law in 37 of 50 states. However,  this type of NCAA March Madness betting is so ingrained in American culture no one is about to start enforcing the law.

Don’t worry; we won’t tell anybody what you’re up to. Plus, the chances of getting arrested for filling out an NCAA tournament bracket stand between incredibly slim and none.

If you are concerned about it, stick to one of the many free-to-enter NCAA bracket online contests held every year. FanDuel hosted a massive one in 2018.

In the meantime, if you are in a pool, or planning to be, you won’t be able to fill out a bracket until the NCAA announces the teams in the field this year. That’ll happen on Selection Sunday: Sunday, March 17.

However, the beginning of March is a good time to start paying a little attention to college basketball. Get to know who the real contenders are for a National Championship this year. Look around for teams that are heating up as the regular season winds down.

Perhaps even watch a few games in the mid-March conference tournaments ahead of Selection Sunday.

All these activities will give you a clear advantage when it comes time to sit down and pick winners on a 63-game NCAA bracket sheet.

Here are some general tips that might help as well:

No. 1 seeds (almost) always win the first few rounds

Maryland-Baltimore County beat Virginia 74-54 in the first round of the 2018 NCAA tournament. This marked the first time since the NCAA tournament went to 64 teams in 1985 that a No. 16 seed beat a No. 1 seed.

That means the No. 1 seeds enjoyed a 135-game winning streak before Maryland-Baltimore County shocked the world. The Maryland-Baltimore County win proved March Madness miracles could happen.

But it also proved they don’t happen all that often.

When you make your picks for the NCAA tournament this year, you’re going to want to look for possible upsets and identify the teams that could be this year’s Cinderella story.

Just remember the chances a No. 16 seed can do it again this year aren’t very good.

Lightning doesn’t usually strike twice

Upsets were in the offing at the 2018 NCAA tournament. In fact, all four of the top-seeded teams in the South region got knocked off before the Sweet 16, marking the first time in NCAA history that had happened in any region.

There was even a regional final match-up of between a No. 9 seed and a No. 11 seed for the first time. That No. 11 seed was Loyola-Chicago who became the real Cinderella of the 2018 NCAA tournament by reaching the Final Four.

There have been years with more upsets, including 1985 and 2014 where there were 13 total upsets in 63 games. But, for the most part, 2018 was an outlier in NCAA history because so many top seeds failed to go deep.

Don’t get caught up in thinking the same thing is bound to happen this year.

The search for Cinderella starts at No. 12

Identifying where the biggest upsets are going to happen should be your No. 1 goal in putting together your NCAA tournament bracket.

The difference between winning and losing any pool can be correctly picking this year’s Cinderella. Plus, you’re not likely to win anything backing the same favorites everyone else does the whole way.

In your search for underdogs that stand a real chance, begin with the No. 5 vs. No. 12 matchups. The truth is that No. 12 seeds historically win close to two-thirds of these games. Most of the time, the lower seed is a dog on paper only here.

The search for Cinderella continues with No. 11

The No. 6 versus No. 11 and No. 7 vs. No. 10 games are usually better matchups than the seeding suggests. While the lower seeds don’t win these games at the same incredible clip No. 12s beat No. 5s, if there’s a Cinderella to be found, it might be found here.

Loyola-Chicago became the Cinderella story of the 2018 NCAA tournament by reaching the Final Four as a No. 11 seed.

However, they were actually the fourth No. 11 seed in history to advance to the Final Four, the lowest seeds ever to go that far.

Momentum is real

Picking upsets in first round games is only half the battle. You have to identify the teams that are capable of making a run at the title.

As you weave your way through the later rounds on your NCAA bracket sheets, a little pre-tournament research can help.

The truth is the teams that win in the second, third and fourth round of the NCAA tournament aren’t always the higher seeds. The winners are the teams that are playing the best.

First, identify teams with momentum on their side. There are only a few ways to identify who these teams are likely to be ahead of the NCAA tournament’s first round.

The first is looking around at the most talented teams in the nation and seeing who is actually living up to the hype. Look for teams that earn the top spot in a conference tournament and run away with the tournament itself.

The second is paying attention to the teams that make a big jump up on the coaches and press polls at the end of the regular season. This is where you might find a hot-playing dark horse to back.

Finally, look for the teams that make surprisingly deep runs in conference tournaments. They may not get the seeding love from the NCAA, but they have already proven they can put a few wins together.

The NCAA selection committee knows what it’s doing

While there are always upsets and surprises throughout the tournament, The NCAA selection committee does know what it’s doing when it comes to seeding. Nothing proves this more than the Final Four.

The fact is, the higher-seeded team wins close to 75 percent of the time in the Final Four.

After you’ve done your picks through the first four rounds of the NCAA tournament, and the names of just four teams remain on your bracket, remind yourself of where the NCAA selection committee originally seeded these teams.

Then, be very careful before you pick an underdog to go to the Championship game.

No. 1 seeds win it all a majority of the time

Yes, there are upsets. The top seeds don’t always win. There have been National Championship winners who surprised everybody even to make the final game, let alone win it.

However, in the 34 years since the NCAA tournament was expanded to 64 teams, a No. 1 seed has won it all a majority of the time. Twenty-one out of 34 to be exact.

No. 2s have come through five times in that span and No. 3s four times. A No. 4 seed won it once, and although no No. 5 seed has ever won, a No. 6 and No. 7 seed have each won it once as well.

Finally, the lowest seed ever to win the NCAA tournament was the No. 8 seeded 1985 Villanova Wildcats.

Of course, this is just a long-winded way of saying don’t second guess yourself if your bracket has a top seed winning it all. It happens almost every year.

Bet on March Madness games

Maybe your bracket isn’t working out, or you just can’t be bothered with picking all 63 games before the tournament begins. Either way, you can still enjoy three weeks of betting on US college basketball at NJ sportsbooks and NJ gambling websites, online and off.

NJ sportsbooks are going to have moneyline, spread and totals lines you can bet on for every NCAA tournament game that doesn’t include a NJ-based team.

Plus, using NJ casino mobile apps, you can bet futures on who will win the title, and put together March Madness parlays to give yourself a bit of an odds boost without having to pick all 63 games.

Find The Best Roulette Games At Caesars Online Casino

February 25, 2019

Caesars Online Casino has a relatively large selection of online roulette games.

In fact, at last count, there were a total of seven online roulette titles available at Caesars Casino & Sports. You’ll find everything from traditional American and European roulette games to roulette with bonus spins and three wheels at Caesars.

The question is, are any one of Caesars’ online roulette offerings any better than the others? The answer is a surprising yes.

Roulette games can be judged based on the return to player (RTP) rate, which tells you theoretically how much of the money put into a game is returned to players.

Finding the best roulette games means seeking out the top RTP rates available. That generally means avoiding roulette games that use American roulette wheels.

European roulette wheels use a single zero slot, but American roulette wheels have a double zero slot added to them as well.

It may seem like a small and insignificant difference, but it is anything but. The addition of the double zero slots has a significant impact on your chances of winning.

In fact, there is an almost 3.5 percent RTP rate difference between American and European roulette. Over the long haul, that means the casino keeping more of your money when you play American versus European roulette.

In other words, you should avoid American roulette games and stick to those that use a European roulette wheel.

Winning Tips For The Best Roulette Games Online At Golden Nugget Casino

February 20, 2019

Golden Nugget Online Casino actually has one of the largest selections of online roulette games in the NJ Gambling Website industry.

At last count, there were a total of 11 online roulette titles available at Golden Nugget. There is everything from traditional roulette games hailing from both sides of the Atlantic to Live Dealer roulette and roulette with three wheels.

However, the question is, how can we separate the wheat from the chaff when it comes to Golden Nugget’s online roulette offerings?

Generally speaking, there is one simple answer.

The trick to finding the best roulette games at any casino is avoiding everything that uses an American roulette wheel. For the most part, that means only playing roulette games that have the words European or French in the title.

The difference is the addition of a double zero slot on American roulette wheels.

It may seem like an insignificant difference, but the addition of the double zero has a huge impact on your odds of winning. In fact, there is a three to four percent Return to Player (RTP) rate difference between American and European or French roulette.

That translates into real money that is obviously better off in your pocket than a casino’s.

Avoid American Roulette games at all cost no matter how patriotic you are. European and French roulette games simply offer you a better chance to win.
