It’s the last chance for teams to make the upcoming NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, better known as March Madness! The Southeastern Conference (SEC) is home to many staples of the tournament such as #6 Kentucky, but there are a few teams, such as South Carolina, right on the bubble. The winner of the SEC Tournament will be given an automatic bid into the big dance, so much is at stake for each team!
The wait is over for many fans in the U.S. who have longed to bet on games and tournaments. Seven states now authorize sports betting, and a host of others have geared up to open betting markets.
Sports betting is also shaping the fan experience in exciting, interactive ways, especially in the online and mobile worlds.
FanWide’s #10 College Basketball team is the Wisconsin Badgers! Few programs can combine historical greatness and present success the same way Wisconsin can. Though the team has not won a National Championship since 1941, the Badgers are a consistent threat in the always-competitive Big Ten conference, year in and year out. Even more impressive, however, is the unwavering commitment of Badgers fans, who are always there to support their team. Top 10 finishes in the categories of fan clubs, recent tournament wins, attendance, and aggregate social media followers earned the Wisconsin Badgers the #10 spot among FanWide’s Top 10 College Basketball Teams.
