The college basketball season is scheduled to begin on Monday, Nov. 6, 2023. 

Generally speaking, the non-conference portion of the college basketball season stretches from the second week of November through the last week of December. After that, conference play begins.

Conference tournaments that determine March Madness automatic bids usually start at the end of February. NCAA Tournament betting lines are finally released once the tournament is revealed on Selection Sunday.

For now, there aren’t single-game college basketball lines at BetMGM, but future odds are available for bettors. I’d recommend checking out my betting breakdown for this year’s college basketball national championship odds market.

You should also check out my college basketball watch list for a short rundown of the big games you’ll want to watch during the next few weeks.
