  • Opening lines for the 2019 NIT are now available.
  • Check out betting odds for every opening round matchup below.

The National Invitation Tournament, or NIT to the layperson, may not be on the radar of the average college basketball fan, but I suppose that’s why gambling was invented. Nobody is itching to fill out their NIT bracket, but betting lines have been unveiled for the first round, which begins on Tuesday.

This tournament has 32 teams and is broken down into four eight-seed sections. Unlike the NCAA Tournament, the first three rounds will not take place at a neutral site, but rather the higher seed’s home court.

For updated NIT betting lines, check out our College Basketball Live Odds page.
