Villanova Knocked Out With Another Under and Lots of Smiling Bookies

Wisconsin’s upset victory over Villanova Saturday to advance into the Elite Eight was exciting for bettors who backed them…..all 20 of them.

Bookies made out like bandits Saturday with the Badgers outright win as 85 percent or more of the spread action was on Nova.

Both teams will essentially break even for bookies with the season spread action.  Villanova and Wisconsin were right around the .500 mark Against The Spread.

But the books have made out well with Villanova from another wagering angle, that being the total.

The Wildcats have finished with the UNDER going 23-12 for the season.  Considering the betting public tends to favor the OVER in general, this record should have yielded good results for most bookmakers.

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.
