After the cancellation of last year’s conference tournament and the NCAA tournament, this year’s March Madness has hit sports fans across the country. Fortunately, conference tournaments have begun, even with the participation of high school classes. But the stakes are high for them. When it comes to betting on these topics, three high-yield futures bets are highlighted in their respective conferences.

Since the beginning of the season, the Cardinals have captivated many bettors. Unfortunately, the team has suffered from injuries all season and is now on the decline. For now, they are fortunate that everyone seems to be in good health as they head into next week’s conference tournament games. Oscar da Silva leads the scoring with 18.8 PPG, complemented by a nice surprise from Jayden Delaire with 12.8 PPG. If everyone can stay in the frame, this team has the potential to beat anyone in the PAC-12 with relatively few weaknesses if it fully recovers. If Jerod Haas has a full team for the conference tournament, Stanford is a good buy at +1500.

The top of the Big Ten is probably much better than the top of the Terrapins. Maryland ranks 26th in KenPom and 32nd in NET. They have won their last five Big Ten games, including victories over the Michigan Spartans and the Scarlett Rutgers Knights. They also scored major victories over Purdue, Illinois and Wisconsin. They lack a true big man, but they have plenty of guys who could fill that position if they played against Michigan, Iowa or Illinois in the Big Ten. They have a lot of players who can score points as well. Considering the price, Maryland is worth the small ticket.

Oklahoma is one of the most intriguing bets on the conference tournament futures market. They defeated Kansas, Texas and West Virginia (twice). They also beat one of the best teams in the country, the Alabama Crimson Tide, even though they played in the SEC. They have the weapons to compete with Baylor or the best of the Big 12. Now they have to be full guard and maybe hit a few more trios, but their offense and defense work with the same efficiency according to KenPom. They also have more rebounds per game than Baylor, a team that ranks among the best in the country in offensive rebounds (36.9%). Given their strengths in all areas, Oklahoma is a key piece to winning the Big 12 tournament.
