Announcing Top Teams To Bet In March Madness

There’s just one weekend ahead of conference tournaments and that means we’re in the final stretch before March Madness. Duke remains the heavy favorite to win the national tournament but the college basketball betting lines may change in the days to come.

March Madness Futures Betting

Duke: Even as Villanova celebrated its third national title, the Blue Devils opened as favorites to win this year’s championship. The freshman trio of Zion Williamson, R.J. Barrett, and Cameron Reddish was ominous to opponents of what this year’s team could do.

The Blue Devils, however, have taken on water without Zion. Duke is still without Williamson since his injury on February 20 in their game against UNC. Hopefully, Zion should be right to go for the beginning of the ACC tournament, but his condition is still a factor heading into March Madness.

Virginia: The Cavaliers are having a fantastic season, sporting a 27-2 record heading into the season finale where they’ll play against Louisville on Saturday. Their two losses have been against Duke (with Zion Williamson), having lost by two and by 10 points.

The Cavaliers’ defense has been solid, but its offense has come around as of late, increasing their points-per-game average over their last three games significantly. The only question is whether Virginia’s style of play will be enough to get them through to the Final Four or if they’ll end up getting booted early as they were last year.

Gonzaga: The Bulldogs have two of the best players on the west coast in Rui Hachimura and Brandon Clark. The pair of Zach Norvell Jr. and Josh Perkins are also solid in the backcourt. However, the one flaw is that they’re somewhat thin beyond their starting five.

Though the Bulldogs have some good players in the ranks such as Corey Kispert, Filip Petrusev, and Geno Crandall, it still seems like a team that’s missing the key to winning it all.

North Carolina: The Tar Heels are taking care of biz down the stretch. However, they’re sort of an off-and-on team that struggles to play consistently. Since losing to Virginia on February 11 though, UNC has strung together a six-game win streak that may give a glimpse that they’ll kick into high gear in the NCAA’s best basketball tournament.

The Tar Heels’ Achilles Heel is its defense, that’s giving up an incredible 73.1 points per game this year. That said, UNC did manage to hold Florida State to just 59 points and then Duke to 72.

Kentucky: Once upon a time, the Wildcats were co-favorites with Duke to win the title. Currently, they take a back seat to the Blue Devils, and the lack of experience in the ranks might be a factor that affects their performance when March Madness tips off. Five of the Wildcats’ top eight scorers this season are true freshmen, and none of them hold a candle to Anthony Davis back when he lead the ‘Cats to win it all when he was a freshman in 2012
