Utah's Odds to Win the NCAA Basketball Tournament

New, 1 comment

Utah no doubt got stuck in a tough region in the NCAA Tournament (the Midwest Region). Michigan State, the No. 2 seed in the Midwest Region, has the second best odds after Kansas to win the National Championship. Last year, Utah was in the region of eventual national champion Duke, who defeated Utah in the Sweet 16. Utah, probably because of the tough region has 50/1 odds to win the NCAA Basketball Tournament, which are the worst odds for any No. 3 seed. Despite being the No. 3 seed, Utah only has the fifth best odds to win the Midwest Region to reach the Final Four. Utah (9/1) is behind No. 2 seed Michigan State (7/4), No. 1 seed Virginia (5/2), No. 5 seed Purdue (6/1), and No. 4 seed Iowa State (15/2). Utah's first round opponent, No. 14 seed Fresno State has tied for the worst odds to win at 250/1.
