South Region Trends, Computer Predictions
The South Region is the only bracket where the top seed is not favored to win the group.
Kansas is the No. 1 seed, but third-seeded Florida is the big favorite, according to Bovada.
"We have them projected ahead of Kansas at No. 1 and Georgetown at No. 2 and therefore the Gators are our favorite," said Kevin Bradley, sportsbook manager at Bovada.lv.
"They probably deserve to be a No. 1 seed and we are treating the March Madness futures that way."

Indeed, the Gators are a money-making 9-3 ATS in their past 12 tournament games, but they have struggled lately to cover spreads (2-7 ATS).
Kansas on the other hand has been terrific ATS. Georgetown, the 2 seed, has been good in the regular season but lousy at tournament time.
