Hoosiers Win East Region 12th Seed Bid Over Wyoming

NCAA Tournament East Region matchup versus St. Mary’s scheduled for Thursday in Portland.

The Indiana Hoosiers men’s basketball team survived a nail-biting selection show over the weekend to make it into the “First Four” round of the March Madness NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

The Hoosiers (21-13) overcame a 17-point deficit against Michigan in the Big Ten Tournament, then defeated the Fighting Illini to make their case for a chance to participate in the road to the Final Four, which will take place in April at the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans.

Tuesday’s game against the Wyoming Cowboys (25-9) was successful for the Indiana men’s basketball team, and they will now compete against the #5 seed St. Mary’s Gales at the Moda Center in Portland, Oregon, this Thursday afternoon.

The path to the East Region’s “Sweet 16” (to be played at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia) is expected to go through the top seed and defending champion Baylor Bears.

Indiana Sportsbooks Offer Attractive Introductory “March Madness” Bonus Packages

In case you don’t have tickets for the game in Portland on Thursday (or just if you want to enjoy all the March Madness action from the convenience of your home computer or mobile device), first-time depositors who are new to placing wagers related to the annual NCAA Basketball tournaments can receive extremely attractive sign-up offers from legal online sportsbooks that operate within the Hoosier State.

In some cases, an introductory “free bet” promotion can be a great way to learn more about the types of single game wagers that can be placed from the comfort of your desktop or mobile device – as long as you are located within Indiana’s borders while doing so (must be at least 21 years of age).

#3 Purdue Boilermakers vs. #14 Yale Bulldogs 

Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee will be Friday’s venue for Purdue’s first round game against Yale, which won the Ivy League Tournament with a 2-point victory over Princeton on Sunday.

The Boilermakers (27-7) dropped the Big Ten championship game against Iowa, but will still enter the 2022 NCAA Tournament with a superior seeding due to its impressive regular-season resume. 

Indiana Legal Sportsbooks Bring In $400 Million In February Handle

February 2022 total handle figures for legal Indiana sportsbooks decreased roughly 20% over a record-setting month in January.

Indiana state coffers received approximately $1.6 million from taxable legal sports betting activity in February, and basketball games represented roughly half of the overall wagering.

Disappointing baseball wagering numbers will surely be boosted now that the MLB regular season has been successfully negotiated, with Opening Day scheduled for April.

Revenues from legal sports betting activity in the Hoosier State are released monthly by the Indiana Gaming Commission, which is charged with formal licensing and oversight of Indiana sportsbooks.
