Although it is sometimes overshadowed in the media by baseball and American football, basketball is another enormously popular sport in the US – and betting on it is also extremely popular. Again, the majority of basketball betting revolves around the NBA (National Basketball Association), but it is also possible to get betting markets on leagues such as the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association), where teams like the Missouri Tigers compete – so what kind of odds do the Tigers have to win this season’s NCAA title?
Well at the moment they are rated as outsiders for the league by sports betting sites, as the lowest odds you can get for them at the moment are 50/1 for the league while, depending on the site you visit, the odds on them can be as long as 100 and even 250/1. Of course there are sides with much higher odds still, and some of the more adventurous basketball betting fans (plus fans of the Tigers) may feel like taking a risk on them at 50/1, but for most people they will represent a bit too much of an outside bet for the NCAA this season.
Tigers fans may feel a kind of obligation to bet on their team, such is the nature of being a fan, but they would probably be better off playing Slam Dunk at an online casino like http://www.iPhonecasino.ca instead. This five reel, nine pay line slot is basketball-themed all the way, from the reel icons of players, basketball shoes, referees and cheerleaders, to the bonus game – but this basketball theme doesn’t come at the expense of the best features of slots. Slam Dunk is really cheap to play, as you can use coins as low as $0.01 to play it, and the double up game feature gives you the opportunity to potentially double any payout you get playing the game.
