March Madness Odds After Gonzaga and Arizona Eliminated


There have been some big shifts in the college basketball national championship odds as a result of Thursday night’s Sweet Sixteen games. No. 1 seeds Gonzaga and Arizona were both eliminated, and the Bulldogs and Wildcats were previously two of the three favoritesalongside Kansas. That has led to the Jayhawks being co-favorites alongside Houston with fellow Elite Eight teams Duke and Villanova behind them.

Kansas is the only No. 1 seed left in the NCAA Tournament. The Jayhawks have yet to play their Sweet Sixteen game, but they will be the overall favorite assuming they get past Providence without injury. They had the easiest path to the Final Four before the Sweet Sixteen got underway, and the Jayhawks are odds-on favorites to make it to New Orleans next week.

Ken Pomeroy was proven right with Houston. The Selection Committee had the Cougars ranked on the No. 4 line, but his ratings have consistently had them as one of the top five teams in the nation. They controlled the game in their win over No. 1 Arizona on Thursday, and they have won all three of their March Madness games by double digits.

Coach K is hoping to go out on top. Duke is in the Elite Eight for the first time in three years, and the Blue Devils are hoping to reach the Final Four for the first time since 2015. Their young talent has started to blossom alongside future lottery pick Paolo Banchero, and the Blue Devils are favored to get past Arkansas on Saturday.

Villanova is an underdog to Houston. However, the Wildcats have a lot of experience and won’t shy away from the moment. Jay Wright is arguably the best game coach in the nation, and that gives the Wildcats an edge in close games. This is one of the most efficient offenses in the nation, and there are three different high-quality scoring options.
