Gators Emerge as Favourites in March Madness Betting

With less than four weeks remaining until the opening weekend of March Madness, the Florida Gators remain the favourites to win the NCAA national championship. The Gators, who have enjoyed a steady climb up the national rankings, are currently listed as 5/1 favourites in futures betting at Bodog.

The Gators sat well back of the pack in March Madness betting at the start of the season, sporting odds of 20/1 in mid-October, while barely cracking the Top 10 in the national rankings. But the Gators have not lost a game SU since December 2, when they dropped a heartbreaking 65-64 decision to No.12 Connecticut.

Florida moves into the No.1 spot displacing the Syracuse Orange, who tumble to No.4 after a pair of losses to Boston College and No.5 Duke, followed by a slim 2-point victory over Maryland on Monday night. The Orange remain in the good graces of oddsmakers at Bodog, where their NCAA Tournament odds sit at 15/2, a considerable improvement over the 25/1 odds they were pegged at in mid-November.

The Wichita State Shockers have lived up to their name this season, posting a 29-0 record SU thus far. But the Shockers’ March Madness odds have yet to follow suit. Wichita State currently sits at 12/1, a respectable line for a team that sported odds of 66/1 as recently as mid-November. Can you buy acquire zoloft online. The Shockers have failed to cover the spread only six times during the perfect season, but it is important to note that the Shockers have not yet faced a nationally ranked team and will not prior to the NCAA Tournament.

The Kentucky Wildcats began the season as the futures favourite, pegged at 3/1 in March Madness betting. But it has been a season of struggles for the Wildcats, who have a 21-6 record SU, including a 69-59 loss on home court to Florida; a game in which the Wildcats were favoured by 2.5 points, against a team they had not lost to on home court in seven years.

The Wildcats close out February sporting March Madness odds of 14/1 and wind up their regular season with a rematch against the Gators on March 8 in a game with serious implications for both March Madness seeding and futures odds for both teams.
