Beyond the Bracket: Betting on March Madness Upsets and Long Shots

The biggest basketball tournament in America (sorry, NBA playoffs!) is about to begin. Here's what you need to know from a bettor's perspective.

NCAA: History in the making

We have our Final Four. Baylor meet Houston in a five-point spread game, while favourites Gonzaga go up against huge underdogs UCLA enjoying a dream run. The big question - do they have one more in them to get to the championship game?

NCAA: All very upsetting

We have our Sweet 16... But it’s been a hell of a ride getting here. Giant-slaying bracket-busters and upsets aplenty in the first two rounds of this year's competition. What does all this mean for the Sweet 16?

NCAA: Buzzer-beater heartbreak? We'll help ease the pain
