The NCAA Tournament lost its first No. 1 seed on Saturday when North Carolina defeated Baylor in spite of the Bears’ furious comeback. That leaves Gonzaga, Kansas, and Arizona as the remaining No. 1 seeds, and the favorites on 2022 March Madness odds boards as sportsbooks’ clear favorite to cut down the nets at the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans.
Eight more Sweet Sixteen tickets will be punched on Sunday. Top-seeded Arizona anchors the day’s slate of games. They’ll face off against TCU at 9:40 pm. We’re tracking March Madness odds from three shops: FanDuel, DraftKings, and BetMGM.
2022 March Madness Odds
Sunday offers a number of intriguing matchups that could push some higher seeds to the brink. Three No. 2 seeds — Duke, Villanova, and Auburn — will be in action against capable opponents.
One of the Big Ten’s top teams is worth considering as a prime threat to the presumptive title favorites. Purdue (+1400 at FanDuel) performed well in a loaded conference. With potential top-five NBA draft pick Jaden Ivey and 7-4 sophomore Zach Edey, the Boilermakers present serious problems for opposing teams.
The North Carolina Tar Heels, meanwhile, are priced at +1800 at FanDuel after opening Saturday at +10000 at the sportsbook. The Tar Heels have won eight of nine in all competitions, and will take on UCLA in a brand-name Sweet Sixteen matchup.
