Whether you’re looking for point spreads, totals, moneylines, quarter and halftime lines, props, or conference and national title futures, FOX Bet is the place to be for online college hoops betting.

The lengthy NCAA basketball season, which ranges from November through the Final Four in April, offers plenty of opportunities for bettors to get in on the action. Advanced statistics and betting trends are available at your fingertips when wagering with FOX Bet, allowing you to wager with confidence.

There are dozens of different wagers you can make prior to the start of a game. They include (but are not necessarily limited to):

  • a straight-up winner (the moneyline)
  • a side to win against a point spread
  • over or under the total number of points that will be scored in the game (by both teams or by either team)
  • a side to win against a first-half point spread
  • any one of a number of game-related props.

A point spread represents a number set by oddsmakers to provide a numerical advantage or disadvantage based on the margin of victory or defeat for a given team. The team that is considered the “favorite” (noted with a “-” sign preceding the number) would need to win the game by a certain number of points while the team that is considered the “underdog” (noted with a “+” sign preceding the number) is given a margin by which the team can lose the game but still “cover” the point spread.

To use an example, if the line is Virginia (-2) vs. Texas Tech (+2): a winning against-the-spread wager on Virginia would require the Cavaliers to win by more than 2 points. Texas Tech is the winning wager in this scenario if the team either wins outright or loses the game by 1 point. If Virginia wins by exactly 2 points, the game is considered a “push” and bettors on both sides of the spread get their wagers refunded.
