Online Bookie Booming in Busiest Month for Online Betting - Saturday 12th of March 2005

In the busiest month for online gambling, BetUS.com have received a record number of calls from gamblers hoping to cash in on early betting offers after the company announced odds on the 65 teams vying for the coveted NCAA Championship Sunday night.
 

According to Mike Foreman, online sports betting handles more volume in the month of March than any other month of the year. He added that, ???Americans love the month of March, because every team is positioned on an even playing field where the regular season no longer counts.???
 

???We've got to be on top of our game, and we are prepared,??? said Mike Foreman, spokesperson for BetUS.com. ???In our industry, it's important to know what's going on every moment with March Madness. We have very few hours to work with -- placing bets, adjusting lines and uploading new betting propositions.???
 

???March Madness commands a lot of attention,??? said Foreman. ???It's raw. It's real. Underdogs overcome all odds to win, and champions are left to scurry to the sidelines with their tails between their legs. We even have customers who bet once a year and choose to throw down money during March Madness, because it's that entertaining.???
 

BetUS.com posted odds on all 65 teams on Sunday night. Favorites like Illinois and North Carolina are top contenders according to current odds, but March Madness can be unpredictable.
 

???These tournaments are filled with upsets -- the underdog outperforming the star team,??? said Foreman. ???You can factor in statistics, trends and injury reports, and it won't mean a thing. It's all about who comes to play. This is what makes March Madness so exciting and why so many people want to get into the action.???
