NCAA Tournament: March Madness Odds

And then there were four.

Upsets have been the theme of this year's NCAA Tournament, and this weekend's action was no different. Giants fell (hello, Kansas and Virginia) while a scrappy Syracuse team defied the odds and became the first ever 10-seed to make the Final Four.

Considering your bracket is probably already thrown in the trash, forget your own personal March sadness and place a bet on one of these futures lines.

Odds as of March 28 at Bovada

  • North Carolina +105
  • Villanova +260
  • Oklahoma +350
  • Syracuse +900

How's that bracket looking?

Probably long forgotten if you had Michigan State going on any sort of run in the tournament, but if you rode the No. 1 seeds and had either Gonzaga or Syracuse advancing to the Sweet 16, you're probably in pretty good shape.

If your bracket is busted though, the game isn't over yet, as a properly placed futures bet can make your wallet a lot fatter. Keep in mind, a No. 1 seed has won the tournament 65% of the time over the last 20 years, and no team lower than No. 8 has made the finals in that span.

Here's the latest odds for the tournament:

Kentucky, Duke, Villanova, and Wisconsin are among the schools favored to win their respective conference tournaments this week, with automatic berths in the NCAA Tournament on the line and the selection committee getting its last chance to have a look at bubble teams.

The first of the major tournaments get underway on Tuesday as the ACC Tournament tips off in Greensboro. The last of the tournaments will come to a close on Sunday, with the Big Ten, SEC, AAC, Atlantic 10, and Sun Belt all determining their champions that day.

Here are the betting previews of this week's tournaments:

2015 ACC Tournament
2015 SEC Tournament
2015 Big East Tournament
2015 Big 12 Tournament
2015 Big Ten Tournament
2015 Pac-12 Tournament
2015 Atlantic 10 Tournament
2015 Conference USA Tournament
2015 Mountain West Tournament
2015 Sun Belt Tournament

-------------------------------

The Kentucky Wildcats begin the month of March still way ahead of the pack on the odds to win the 2015 NCAA Tournament, with the 29-0 team the 1/1 favorites to come out on top in March Madness at online sportsbook Bovada.

Kentucky has two games left on its regular-season schedule, playing at Georgia and vs. Florida in the week ahead before they enter the SEC Tournament the following week. The Wildcats have already locked up the top seed in the SEC Tournament with a 16-0 conference record; that event gets underway on March 11.

Teams looking to challenge the Wildcats atop the odds to win the 2015 NCAA Tournament include Duke (8/1), Wisconsin (9/1), Arizona (12/1), Virginia (12/1), and Gonzaga (14/1). Bovada then has Villanova at 16/1, Kansas at 25/1, and Utah at 28/1 on those college basketball futures.

-------------------------------

With their win on Sunday night the Virginia Cavaliers remained one of three teams (along with the Kentucky Wildcats and Gonzaga Bulldogs) with one or fewer losses on the season, and they'll be looking to lock down a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament and bolster their March Madness odds with a strong end to the regular season and a victory in the upcoming ACC Tournament.

And the ACC Tournament will get underway in the second week of March along with the other major conference championships, with the Atlantic Sun, Horizon League, and Patriot League tournaments getting the college basketball postseason started on March 3. Here's a look at the start dates for all 31 conference tournaments in the month of March . . .

-------------------------------

It's been 25 games, 25 wins for the Kentucky Wildcats heading into this week, and as the clear leader atop the polls with the month of February half over the online sportsbooks have them as the runaway favorite on the odds to win the 2015 NCAA Tournament.

The 25-0 Wildcats are the 11/10 favorites on the 2015 March Madness odds at Bovada, with Wisconsin the school closest to them on the list at 15/2, both Duke and Virginia sitting at 9/1, Gonzaga at 10/1, and Arizona at 14/1. No other school sits below 20/1 on those futures.

The Wildcats, who matched the best start in school history when they hit 25-0, have six more games left in the regular season - at Tennessee, vs. Auburn, at Mississippi State, vs. Arkansas, at Georgia, and vs. Florida. Heading into this week the Razorbacks were the only ranked team in that group, sitting at No. 24 in the AP Top 25.
