NCAA Tournament Odds Set at Sportsbooks

With March Madness about to tip off it’s time to start filling out your brackets. And once your bracket is complete it’s also a good time to check out the NCAA Tournament futures available at online sportsbook Bodog.

The March Madness futures at Bodog currently include odds on who will win each region and who will be cutting down the nets and claiming the national championship.

For regions we’ll start in the East where the North Carolina Tar Heels are the No. 1 seed and the favorite at Bodog. The Tar Heels are listed at +200 but they are not followed by the No. 2 seed. Next in line are the No. 3 West Virginia Mountaineers at +400 and the No. 4 Kentucky Wildcats at +500. The No. 2 seeded Xavier Musketeers finally show up next at +600.

In the West region the Oregon Ducks were selected as the No. 1 seed, but they’re not the favorite at Bodog. On the March Madness futures the Oklahoma Sooners are the West region favorite at +225, with Oregon at +325. The defending champion Duke Blue Devils are also getting pretty good odds at +450.

The Midwest region also has the No. 2 seed listed as the favorite with the Michigan State Spartans at +175. That is just ahead of the No. 1 Virginia Cavaliers at +250. The oddsmakers are also watching the Purdue Boilermakers at +600 and the Iowa State Cyclones at +750.

The South region boasts the top seed in the tournament, the Kansas Jayhawks, who are the favorite in the region at +150. Their biggest competition will likely be Villanova, who are second on the odds list at +300.

Kansas is also the overall favorite to win the tournament on the Bodog NCAA Tournament futures at +500. The Jayhawks may be the overall No. 1 seed, but they’re not huge favorites at +500 as Michigan State, a No. 2 seed in their region, is at +550.

North Carolina is also a serious contender in the oddsmakers’ eyes at +700 and Kentucky, a No. 4 seed, comes in at +1000. The odds on the other No. 1 seeds include Virginia at +1200 and Oregon at +1400. A No. 1 seed has won the NCAA Tournament in seven of the last nine years.
