List of Current Sweet 16 Odds to Win The NCAA Tournament Can Be Found Below!

March Madness. That’s why we all watch and love the NCAA Tournament. Because no lead is ever safe and no favorite is every assured anything. It doesn’t matter if you’re favored by a single point or two dozen. Any team can, and quite frequently does beat anyone.

Ask the chalks of this tournament, the #1 Kansas Jayhawks out of the Midwest Bracket. At some sportsbooks, they were as low as +200 to win the entire tourney coming into play on Saturday, and they were sizeable favorites to take out the Missouri Valley champs, the #9 Northern Iowa Panthers.

Nobody told that to G Ali Farokhmanesh, who stood like a warrior at the three point line, stared the mighty Jayhawks in the face, damned the fact that his team had absolutely no business playing with the top team in the land, and let a brown dagger fly through the sky. When that dagger flushed through the twine, Farokhmanesh was immediately placed in lore in tiny Cedar Falls, Iowa.

Forget about the fact that Farokhmanesh’s shot really had no business being taken. It defied all logic. After all, the Panthers were up a point with the ball with less than 30 seconds to play, and any conventionally thinking person would’ve dribbled around and waited to get fouled.

But defying logic is what makes this tournament great. And now, #1 is no more.

The beauty of this tournament this season is that there are 11 conferences represented in the Sweet 16 and only the Big Ten has three representatives. Fans from all across the country will have a relatively local team to latch onto, which could make this a very, very interesting four days of basketball coming up this weekend.

The new favorites of the field are the #1 Kentucky Wildcats (+250 at 5Dimes Sportsbook. The Cats have looked great in two tourney games so far, winning against both #16 East Tennessee State and #9 Wake Forest by 20+ points apiece. Stopping G John Wall, G Eric Bledsoe, F Patrick Patterson, and F DeMarcus Cousins seems like a nearly impossible task, especially for some lowly #12 seed out of the Ivy League… but beating names like Aldrich, Morris, Morris, and Collins didn’t seem likely for a bunch of Missouri Valley guys either.

As for those Valley dwellers, they’re still the second longest shot to win the tournament on the board at +6600 at 5Dimes Sportsbook, and there’s reason to believe that those odds are simply too long. UNI draws #5 Michigan State in the Sweet 16, a team that is going to be playing without G Kalin Lucas for the remainder of the season courtesy of a ruptured Achilles tendon. Without Lucas this year, the Spartans looked like an average team at best, and an extraordinary performance once again by the men clad in purple and gold could lead to yet another upset and a date with either #2 Ohio State or #6 Tennessee in the Elite 8.

Both the #1 Duke Blue Devils (+450 at 5Dimes Sportsbook) and the #1 Syracuse Orange (+475 at 5Dimes Sportsbook) have relatively easy draws to get to the Final Four for top seeds, as the Orange must beat #5 Butler and then either #2 Kansas State or #6 Xavier, while things have opened up particularly nicely for the Dookies, who get #4 Purdue this week and will finish the weekend with either #3 Baylor or #10 St. Mary’s.

March Madness odds differ from sportsbook to sportsbook, and when you’re trying to find which team you’d like to place your college basketball betting wagers on, it’s important to find the best numbers possible. Here’s at Bankroll Sports, we’re on top of everything and giving you your free NCAA Tournament picks to cash in on this spring.

Keep an eye on the Kentucky Wildcats. They’ve got one of the most well-rounded teams in the nation and have arguably the country’s most explosive player in G John Wall. Coming into this weekend, Wall is averaging 17.1 points and 6.4 assists per game. HC John Calipari has a great history of leading teams deep into the NCAA Tournament, and this year should be no exception. Fs Patrick Patterson and F DeMarcus Cousins also make up one of the best inside duos in the country as well, and assuming that the Cats ultimately end up with a #1 seed in the dance, they’re going to be a real steal at +300 at BoDog Sportsbook.
If you’re looking for some teams with longer odds to win the whole thing that may have some tremendous value later down the line, how about taking a look at some of these…

New Mexico Lobos +10000 at Oddsmaker (110% Bonus)
BYU Cougars +10000 at Oddsmaker (110% Bonus)
Xavier Musketeers +12500 at Oddsmaker (100% Bonus)
Northern Iowa Panthers +25000 at Oddsmaker (100% Bonus)
Missouri Tigers +20000 at Oddsmaker (110% Bonus)

The logic behind all of these teams are exactly the same. Each of these five teams are certainly going to make the NCAA Tournament. In the event of the Lobos and Cougars, they may be #3 or #4 seeds in the tourney. Xavier, Northern Iowa, and Missouri are probably all going to be favorites in the first round of the dance. All of these squads have the ability to reach the Sweet 16 without any hassles whatsoever, and add 100/1 or better on each, you may be able to put yourself in a position to make a ton of money just by scalping games if any of them do reach the Elite Eight or the Final Four.

On the flip side of things, there are a number of teams that you’re going to want to avoid as well when you’re banking on the NCAA Basketball Tournament Odds. There’s no way that you should invest in the defending national champs, the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Heels have virtually no chance of getting an at-large berth to the tourney, and unless they have a run to the ACC Championship in them, they probably won’t sniff the field. Even if it does get in, Carolina’s 75/1 or so probably isn’t anywhere near worth it. Virtually the same could be said about the Connecticut Huskies (+5000), Louisville Cardinals (+6000), and Memphis Tigers (+10000).

The books will also try to trap you by placing odds on the board on teams that probably aren’t even going to get a chance to lace up their dancing shoes. At least each of those teams listed above has a chance of making it to the Field of 65. BoDog Sportsbook currently has odds available on a number of teams that may not even make the NIT. Be sure to stay away from these at all costs, as there aren’t odds high enough on teams like Alabama and Boston College (both listed at 200-1) to make them worth betting on.
