MAC 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 hop into the CAA tournament.

The Bracketology

As of Monday afternoon, Deceptive Speed Bracketology has Akron listed as a 13 seed, so we’re dealing with a one-bid league in the MAC believe it or not.

The Odds

Akron +145
Ball State +500
Bowling Green/Buffalo +600
Kent State +700
Toledo +1000
Ohio +1500
Eastern Michigan +5500
Central Michigan +6000
Miami (OH)/Western Michigan +7500

The Suck

Is this the year Miami (OH) gets it done? Can Western Michigan make a run? Well of course not, and that’s why they’re +7500. If you make the decision to throw $10 on either team, you could be coming home with a $750 payday.

The investment opportunity

Ready to get weird with it? We’re diving in on the #5 seed to win the MAC Conference tournament. In the end, Buffalo will be the team representing at the NCAA Tournament. Bulls are 10-5 away from home this season, the best in the entire conference, and they’ve won this four of the last five seasons. If you do that and the experts decide to give us +600 value, we’ll take that any day.

Let’s make it happen, Buffalo.
