If you want to become a basketball bookie, you can start as soon as today so you have enough time to get sorted for the Elite Eight happening this weekend. Action starts Saturday at 6:09 PM and again on Sunday at 2:20 PM and we are now looking at a tournament that started from 68 teams and now down to 8. The winners of Elite Eight will then compete next week in the Final Four, and eventually the Championship Game to close out March Madness. Here is our Elite Eight preview to help you with March Madness betting.

If you are looking to keep track of brackets and match ups and betting lines, using your Bookie PPH software will make it easy for you. Since you only have less than a handful of games, you can easily switch through each games’ lines to manage your sportsbook. And since your provider already includes the betting odds for each game, you just need to focus on moving the lines as needed.

Elite Eight Preview

2024 Elite Eight PreviewUConn will face Illinois at 18:09 ET and Alabama will be facing Clemson at 20:49 in Day 1 of the Elite Eight. The Huskies are setting quite the pace here, winning 9 straight games in the tournament by double digit numbers. Illinois may give them a run for their money. If they don’t beat the Huskies, then they will at least make it a close game. Alabama and Clemson are both schools known to excel in football, but this year it looks like basketball is following suit. While both teams are strong in both offense and defense, a lot of handicappers are looking at Clemson to win. However, Alabama can deliver a good underdog win, so check the lines to find out which option will be better for you.

The first game on Sunday is between Purdue and Tennessee on Sunday at 2:20 PM ET. As you can see, we are clearly starting this round with a bang as you have powerhouse team Purdue see if they can beat Tennessee and move on to the Final Four. Zach Edey is on fire, and the backcourt is performing so well, that this will be their game to lose. Next up you have Duke and North Carolina playing to fill the last spot for the Final Four. Both of these teams have players used to different playing styles so it will be interesting to see how it turns out, especially for scoring.
