Rutgers Scarlet Knights 2021-22 Season
Rutgers have greatly exceeded their preseason expectations, earning a double-bye in the Big Ten Tournament. The Scarlet Knights are primed to make a splash in March. This starts with the Big Ten Tournament, and then the NCAA Tournament. Rutgers has notable wins against Purdue, Ohio State, and Wisconsin.
Rutgers is currently projected to make the tournament as an 11 seed. Geo Baker and Ron Harper Jr. have been the stars of this team so far. They will need to have an exceptional run to take this team deep in the tournament.
Betting on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights
The Iowa Hawkeyes look to be among the favorites for oddsmakers heading into tournament season. These are the popular types of bets that you can make on the Hawkeyes if you live in a legal sports betting state for the rest of the season.
A moneyline bet requires a bettor to correctly pick the winner of the game. If you pick the winner of the game correctly, you will win the bet. How much you win will be determined by your wager amount and the associated moneyline for the team you bet on. Here's an example using an Rutgers game against Michigan.
- Rutgers -180 moneyline
- Michigan +140 moneyline
Rutgers is the team favored to win this game, which is indicated by the minus sign (-) next to their moneyline. Michigan is the underdog denoted by the plus sign (+) next to their moneyline. The moneyline number signifies the potential payout for each team. Someone betting on Rutgers would have to bet $180 to win $100 whereas a bettor would win $140 with a wager of $100 on Michigan.
Rutgers Point Spread
Users can also place a point spread wager on the Scarlet Knights. This requires a bettor to correctly select the margin of victory by a particular team, rather than simply who wins. Here's the same Rutgers vs. Michigan matchup as an example
- Rutgers -3.5 (-110)
- Michigan +3.5 (-120)
Oddsmakers set a margin of victory total known as the spread. In this game, Rutgers has to win by four or more points to beat this spread and Michigan either has to win the game outright or lose by three points or less to beat the spread. Point spreads also have an additional element known as juice, or the vig, which is the tax paid to the sportsbook for each bet. The juice is indicated next to the point spread. This number is used to determine a wager payout. For a bet on the Scarlet Knights, a bettor would earn a profit of $100 for every $110 risked. Someone betting on Michigan would earn a profit of $100 for every $120 risked.
Betting on over/under totals looks at the cumulative final score between two teams, not the winner
or loser of the game. Bettors are required to accurately predict if the teams combine higher or lower than a number set by oddsmakers. Oddsmakers set the over/under total for Rutgers vs. Michigan at 149.5 points.
- Over 149.5 points (-108)
- Under 149.5 points (-112)
Again, juice or vig comes into play with over/unders. Betting over 149.5 points means in this case that a bettor would have to wager $108 to earn $100. Betting under 149.5 points would mean a bettors would earn $100 for every $112 risked.
Iowa Prop Bets
For those Scarlet Knights fans that have a particular favorite player, prop bets are a great way to show your support. Oddsmakers will also set lines on player statistics. Bettors then have the opportunity to guess whether those players will go over or under the set line to win money. Some popular prop bets include how many points a player will score, who will score first, how many rebounds a player gets, and many more.
Rutgers Future Odds
If you like the Scarlet Knights' odds to make the Final Four or win the NCAA Tournament, take a look at futures odds. A futures bet is wager for an event happening in the later in the season. Because a futures bet can be really hard to predict, the payouts are much higher than a typical wager. Currently the Hawkeyes are +3000 to make the Final Four and +12000 to win the NCAA Tournament.
