Top Seeds Focus of More Madness Props

Top seeds are just 2-6 against the spread in Round of 64 games the previous two years but have never lost their first matchup against No. 16 seeds.

Still, you can bet whether or not a No. 16 seed will pull off the biggest upset in NCAA Tournament history this year at +900 (bet $100 to win $900) at Bovada. If you do not think that will be the case again, you will have to pay a very high price of -2000 (wager $2000 to win $100).
