NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Championship Odds

College basketball tournament odds are currently available to bet on both futures markets — like how far a certain team will advance — and individual games, not to mention parlays and prop bets. Below are the futures odds to cut down the nets at the Final Four in Phoenix on April 8.


Connecticut, Houston, Purdue Boast Shortest Championship Odds

The top three favorites are currently ranked No. 1, 2, and 3 in the AP Top 25, and each one earned a 1-seed in their respective region. Below are the odds — from props to futures prices on what round of the tournament they will reach — for reigning national champion Connecticut, Houston, and Purdue:


The Huskies (31-3, 18-2 Big East) seek to become the first back-to-back champions since Florida in 2006 and 2007. UConn has the top-end talent and the depth to pull it off, but winning six games in a row with a massive target on their back will be challenging, even for a roster as deep as this one.

Houston (30-4, 15-3 Big East) is one of the best defensive teams in the country, and its experienced backcourt, led by seniors LJ Cryer and Jamal Shead, gives it a floor as high as anyone’s.

National player of the year frontrunner Zach Edey and Purdue (29-4, 17-3 Big Ten) have unfinished business after painful early exits from the Big Dance each of the last three years, including to 15-seed Saint Peter’s in the Sweet 16 in 2022 and to 16-seed Fairleigh Dickinson in the first round a year ago.
