Betting on Maryland Terrapins basketball

College basketball runs pretty much parallel with the NBA in America, and there is plenty of sports betting interest in the former as well as the latter, especially amongst those who attend – or used to attend – the different colleges and universities involved. The Maryland Terrapins have made a reasonable, if not earth-shattering, start to their season, with five wins from seven played so far. This leaves them sitting in the middle of the Atlantic Coast Conference, but could this be the year that they recapture former glories?

Well, if the bookmakers are to be believed, the 2013/14 Terrapins team will not match those of 2002, 2004 and 2010 in terms of trophy winning achievement. 2002 saw their only NCAA Championship triumph, but they have been given rank outsider odds of 150/1 to replicate that this year. To be fair they do not look like they will do so, if the regular season form is anything to go by, and only a really reckless punter will want to put their money on them at these prices. Placing bets on the Terrapins to win one-off games during the season makes more sense, although perhaps not quite as much sense as playing a basketball themed game at an online casino.

The reason it makes such good sense to play Slam Dunk at a site like or other such slot machine games is that they are cheap to play and offer an outstanding chance at receiving a cash payout. You can usually deposit as little as $0.01- $0.10 per line to play them and most of them offer a jackpot worth thousands of pounds. Therefore it clearly makes financial sense, but from a gaming point of view, the various game bonuses, top level video graphics and sound effects ensure that these games are fast, furious and a whole lot of fun – whether you like basketball or not.
