INDIANAPOLIS, IN- March 14 , 2005 – March Madness has started! With the field announced earlier today by the NCAA, Sportsbook.com is the first to offer odds on the tournament with its March Madness bracket.
“March Madness is the biggest basketball event in the United States and Sportsbook.com is excited that we are first to market with odds on every team in the field, says Alex Czajkowski, Marketing Director, Sportsbook.com. ìWe’ll update our bracket after each round to provide the latest odds as teams make their run toward the Final Four.
