American East Conference tournament gambling preview

Deceptive Speed will break down every single conference tournament from a gambling perspective the day each tourney starts. You’ve lost quite a bit of money this month in the past whether it’s food, drinks, gambling or bracket pools. The goal for 2020 is to make you some money in March for the first time in your entire life.

We’ve reached the first Saturday of conference tournament season, and four more tourneys get started today. Let’s give the American East Conference tournament a look.

The Bracket

The Bracketology

Deceptive Speed Bracketology has Vermont earning the automatic bid and sliding on in as a 12 seed. If they do not win this tournament, they’ve got lots of issues if they plan to make it to the NCAA Tournament.

The Odds

Vermont -500
Stony Brook +475
Hartford +1400
UMBC +2500
New Hampshire +4000
UMass-Lowell +5000
Albany +7000
Maine +9000

The Suck

I used to play the college basketball video game and brought Maine basketball to great success. Unfortunately, they’re not very good in the real world and a $10 bet would get you $900. Go do it, I dare you.

The Bet

Let’s keep it simple. It’s a two-team race. Betting a team -500 to win anything should be illegal. Go with Stony Brook. They beat Vermont on the road this season. No doubt on where to invest in the American East Conference tournament.
