UConn is not exactly the favorite to win the NCAA tournament

New, 4 comments

I know, not a huge surprise there, but still worth confirming. In the grand scheme of things the Huskies don't have terrible odds -- only 20 teams are ahead of them -- but a lot of that is probably based on name recognition. The odds, which come from bovada.lv, have UConn as 75/1 odds to with the National Title and 30/1 odds to make the Final Four out of the South Region.

The overall favorite? Why that would be Kentucky at 9/4. Syracuse has the best odds of any Big East team but the worst odds of any 1 seed at 10/1.

Full odds for both the tournament and the South Region are after the jump.
