East Regional Odds Ohio State Favored

With Player of the Year candidate Jared Sullinger leading the charge, Ohio State was dominant much of the season.

The Buckeyes went 32-2, but did lose a pair of tough conference road games in February (Wisconsin and Purdue) to shake the confidence of some bettors.

But they are the No. 1 seed and the leaders in the East Regional odds. [ Matchup Reports and Previews on Every Game ]
Kentucky is the next choice, a bit surprising since they are the bracket’s 4-seed. Syracuse and UNC are tied for third among odds at Bovada at 17/4.

Beyond the frontrunners, the odds increase quickly with Cinderella possibility Washington at 18/1 behind Isiaiah Thomas and Villanova at 40/1. The Philly school started the season with title aspirations but the Wildcats have been erratic at times and bad at other times.
