MARCH 22, 2017 – With 16 teams left in the field, the odds-makers at www.SportsBettingDime.com, still give Kansas (8/1) and UNC (25/3) the best odds on winning it all while the odds that Xavier (75/1), South Carolina (66/1) and Butler (45/1) continue their run are long.  And, despite having the best odds of making the Final Four from their region (13/7), Florida has the longest odds of the four favorites to win it all (12/1).

Despite each sending three teams to the Sweet 16, the odds-makers favor a champion coming from the Big 12 (13/4) or Pac 12 (11/3) over the SEC (14/3) or Big 10 (13/2).  And if you like Kansas, you can get 199/1 odds that their road to the title includes wins over four Big 10 teams — Michigan State, Purdue, Michigan and finally Wisconsin.
