Odds For Top Teams To Win NCAA Tournament

Posted by Washington Tucker on 3/24/2014 9:24:08 PM

We have arrived at the Sweet 16 and numerous top seeds have already fallen. Earlier in the year the Kansas Jayhawks appeared to be a title contender, but without Joel Embiid they fell in their second game to the Stanford Cardinal. Stanford doesn’t make this list of top title contenders, but the following five teams all have a realistic shot of winning the NCAA Tournament.

Virginia Cavaliers 6:1 Odds

The Virginia Cavaliers haven’t run into much trouble yet this tournament, but they have their toughest test of the season ahead as they must face the Michigan State Spartans in the Sweet 16 this coming Friday. The Cavaliers play defense better than most teams left in the tournament, but as they proved against the Memphis Tigers when they scored 78 points, their offense can get the job done as well.

Louisville Cardinals 5:1 Odds

The Louisville Cardinals looked shaky in their first tournament game, but beating the St. Louis Billikens by 15 was enough to further convince me a repeat is possible. The trio of Russ Smith, Luke Hancock, and Montrezl Harrell is enough for this team to make the Final Four, but the coaching and experience of Rick Pitino gives this team a realistic chance of being the first school to repeat as National Champions since the Florida Gators in 2006 and 2007.

Michigan State Spartans 5:1 Odds

Michigan State and Virginia have similar odds because it’s very likely one of the two make it out of the Sweet 16 and eventually to the Final Four. Adreian Payne was downright dominant in his first game of the tournament when he scored 41 points and grabbed eight rebounds, but a lackluster outing against Harvard has me a tad concerned. The guard combo of Gary Harris and Keith Appling is underrated, however, and I have a feeling the senior-led Spartans will find a way to make it to Arlington Texas and compete in the Final Four.

Arizona Wildcats 4:1 Odds

The Arizona Wildcats have been a pleasant surprise this tournament as they easily defeated both the Weber State Wildcats and Gonzaga Bulldogs. This is an usual feat for a number one seed as they tend to be the ones that underperform early on. They have arguably the easiest road to the Final Four, and because of it their odds a better than every team but one, the Florida Gators.

Florida Gators 3:1 Odds

The Gators came into the tournament as the number one overall seed, and if they can get past the UCLA Bruins on Thursday I like their odds to advance to the Final Four and possibly National Championship. Their defense will keep them in every game, and the shooting of Michael Frazier and Scottie Wilbekin can decide games late, which is the reason the Florida Gators have the best odds of anyone to win the National Championship.
