Top Seeds Focus of More Madness Props

Top seeds focus of more March 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).

Other prop bets you can get action on involving No. 1 seeds include how many of them will actually make it to the Final Four. Wagering on one or two top seeds making the Final Four is worth +200 apiece, while there is a better chance that no No. 1 seeds survive until the last weekend (+500) rather than all four advance (+1500).

The OVER/UNDER on the number of top seeds getting to the Final Four is 1.5, with the OVER favored at -175 and the UNDER worth +145 at Bovada.

There is even a prop bet that sums up the total of the seeds for each Final Four team with the O/U sitting at 9.5. UNDER is the -130 favorite with OVER at -110.

If you want to wager on what seed will win the national championship, the No. 1 seed is the obvious heavy favorite at -200 followed by No. 2 at +300 and No. 3 at +1000. Betting on the No. 4 or No. 5 seed to win it all is each worth +1600.

Last year, the seventh-seeded Connecticut Huskies cut down the nets for their fourth NCAA title, and they would be +2000 this year.
