Are you ready for some more great college basketball? The second round of the 2022 NCAA Tournament concludes with eight games on Sunday. Here are March Madness odds from around the betting marketplace, beginning with the first tip of the day, Houston vs. Illinois in the South Region.

Houston vs. Illinois Odds

No. 4 Illinois was nearly upset by No. 13 Chattanooga on Friday night. A pair of Malachi Smith free throws gave the Mocs a 53-52 lead with 32 seconds left, but Alfonso Plummer sank two free throws of his own with 12 seconds on the clock, and a Coleman Hawkins block keyed a late defensive stand for Illinois in the 54-53 win.

No. 5 Houston earned the right to move on to the second round after beating No. 12 UAB, 82-68.

The Cougars are 4.5-point favorites in Sunday’s South Regional affair, per opening lines.
