March Madness: Updates, Best Odds, & Where to Bet

Band Warming Up for the Big Dance

The 2019-2020 men’s college basketball regular-season is nearly a closed book but the conference tournaments are looming and will be the first chapter written in the postseason before the national tournament is held. Therefore, there are still games to be played before Selection Sunday but the No. 1 seeds are coming into focus with only the blur of what will be their conference tournament performances obstructing the view.

Let’s review a few of the teams to watch, as well as their corresponding odds, which can be found at all of the best sportsbooks by SBR. March Madness will be here before you know it so if you’re not a college hoops freak, and want to be able to talk about it like you are, then read on and discover which teams are poised to make a deep run to the national championship!


Potential No. 1 Seeds

Kansas (26-3, +550) – The Jayhawks are definitely tournament bound and unless the roof caves in will likely secure one of the four No. 1 seeds. Kansas is reigning supreme in one of the toughest college basketball conferences in the nation, the Big 12, but has a talented Baylor squad breathing down their necks with an identical overall record and just a half-game back in the conference standings. It’s likely the Big 12 will be represented by two top seeds and a clash between these teams in the conference tournament finals is likely before the Big Dance begins.

Gonzaga (29-2, +800) – These Bulldogs have plenty of bite to go along with their bark as evidenced by their 29-2 record while boasting the nation’s top-ranked offense, currently averaging 87. 7 points per game. Although the caliber of competition in their conference is a distant second compared to others, the Zags have defeated out of conference foes like Oregon and Arizona to name a few. If Gonzaga can buckle down a bit more on defense, they could find themselves in the Final Four and perhaps secure a national title that has eluded them to this point.

Baylor (26-3, +850) – The Bears split the season series with their conference rivals from Kansas but the old saying, “It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish,” comes into play here because the second of those two-season series games was a loss for Baylor which gave them two conference setbacks versus only one for the Jayhawks. Nevertheless, there’s a very good chance the Bears will get to even the score in the Big 12 Tournament with the winner virtually guaranteed to be sitting atop their region when the seedings are announced.

Dayton (27-2, +950) – The Dayton Flyers resemble The Little Engine That Could, with a pristine 16-0 conference record and giving the best team in the nation, Kansas, all they could handle earlier in the season when they bowed to the Jayhawks, 90-84, in an overtime thriller. However, the Flyers have no room for faltering as they reside in the Atlantic 10, not exactly a bastion of college basketball championships, and if they stumble in their conference tournament then you could see these Flyers falling from their lofty perch.

San Diego State (28-1, +1800) – The Aztecs fall into the same category as Dayton, small conference school playing bigtime basketball, but one misstep and they can kiss a No. 1 seed goodbye. San Diego State has yet to meet any of the college basketball elites but they boast the third-ranked defense in the nation, allowing just 59.2 points per game. If the others above them stumble and the Aztecs cruise to a Mountain West Tournament title then they could be another small conference school holding serious sway with the Selection Committee.


Bet Smart and Choose the Best Books

The name of the game is picking the right team but choosing the sportsbook is equally as important because if you win, you want to get paid. Don’t take your buddy’s advice about where to make your wagers because he could be a stone-cold loser who has never requested a payout from his book – but he’ll never admit it! Make sure to check out Sportsbook Review (SBR) where they grade hundreds of online shops from around the globe. Every online sportsbook receives a letter grade from A+ to F so make sure to play at only the top-rated books so you can sweat the game but never the payout!
