2017 March Madness Bookie Guide: Butler Bulldogs

Written by:
Published on:

The Butler Bears certainly have a shot for glory this year as they will enter the 2017 March Madness with a solid 23-8 record Straight Up and 17-12 record Against The Spread. 

The ESPN.com prognosis:

Any squad that sweeps Villanova should not be dismissed from the Final Four conversation. But this barely-top-50 defense surrendered 76 points in a loss to St. John's and 85 in a loss to Georgetown, a team surpassed only by DePaul as the Big East's worst offense, per KenPom.com. Butler's inconsistency is a problem.

The Bulldogs had cooled off ahead of March Madness, covering the spread in 40 percent of their last ten games.  This doesn’t mean bookies who cater heavily to Butler fans and anyone else taking action on this team shouldn’t be in search for platforms that can assist in laying off action and boosting the bottom line.

Pay Per Head companies provide various tools to bookmakers and agents they themselves have trouble offering on their own.  These businesses offer LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING, hundreds of game and player props, future bets, an online casino platform and betting on dozens of horse races through a customized website, all of which can help boost profits while significantly reducing losses.

A Pay Per Head is a must for any bookie this March Madness season.
