The NCAA Tournament’s first weekend delivered the drama and madness college basketball fans expect in March. The first two rounds claimed a one-seed and a pair of No. 2 seeds over the first four days of action. With several favorites sent home and the Sweet 16 set, bettors can consider a fresh set of odds to win March Madness in 2022.
Gonzaga continues to be the favorite to cut down the final net at Caesars Superdome on April 4. The Bulldogs fended off and outlasted Memphis’ respectable upset bid, and they’re +230 at BetMGM Sportsbook to win their first national championship.
We’re looking at the odds from three different sportsbooks ahead of next week’s Sweet 16 slate: DraftKings, FanDuel, and BetMGM. Bettors will want to pay attention to the specific gambling laws that govern their state when it comes to betting on college sports.
Odds To Win March Madness 2022
Gonzaga may be the clear favorite, with Kansas and Arizona hot on its heels, but value plays reside lower down the odds table, including ACC adversaries Duke and North Carolina. In Paolo Banchero and A.J. Griffin, the Blue Devils have a pair of highly touted NBA prospects. Does the added attention of Coach K’s final season help or hinder his team down the stretch? They’ll meet No. 3 seed Texas Tech on Thursday evening.
“Survive and advance” is the mantra by which the Tar Heels live. They barely held it together to fend off Baylor’s furious comeback bid on Saturday. The Heels’ are priced as underdogs ahead of Friday’s brand-name tilt with UCLA. However, Saturday’s near-collapse overshadows the high level at which they’ve performed over the past month.
Finally, don’t forget about Purdue, who is battle tested coming out of a rugged Big Ten. Additionally, they have a dynamic guard in Jaden Ivey and a dominant physical force in 7-foot-4 sophomore Zach Edey.
