2017 Sweet 16 Round – Championship Futures
Looking for 2017 College Basketball Futures Odds and some great betting lines to get down on? It’s Sweet 16 in the 2017 March Madness tourney, and we’ve got your back. The Sweet 16 kicks off on Thursday and every team that has advanced this far feels like they have a chance to be cutting down the nets in April. But some teams have a much harder road to make that dream a reality than the others.
Handicapping 2017 College Basketball Futures Odds
Here are the CBB futures from our last post on this subject. I can’t go through all 16 teams, but lets take a look some of the teams that Vegas says has the best odds, and some of the most intriguing teams to bet on.
College Basketball Futures Odds: Kansas Jayhawks +400
We’ve reached the Sweet 16 and the Kansas Jayhawks are the odds on favorites to win the National Championship, and that shouldn’t really be a surprise to anyone. Not only are the top ranked team left in the field, they also have one of the easiest routes to get to the Final Four.
They have to beat Purdue in their next game, which will be a really tough match up but if they were to win that game they would move on to play the winner of the Oregon/Michigan Game.
The Jayhawks back court is an experienced bunch and they also have Josh Jackson, who has been playing out of his mind this tournament.
College Basketball Futures Odds: North Carolina Tar Heels +450
With the Duke Blue Devils out of the tournament before the Sweet 16 the North Carolina Tar Heels seem to be the popular pick to win it all, but they have a much tougher path to get to the Final Four.
Their Sweet 16 game is against the Butler Bulldogs. If they were to win that game they would move on to take on the winner of the Kentucky/UCLA game.
College Basketball Futures Odds: Gonzaga Bulldogs +500
The one team no one really wants to trust in this tournament comes in with the third best odds to win it all in April and they have a nice matchup in the Sweet 16.
I think the Gonzaga Bulldogs have as good of chance as anyone, if they can get best the West Virginia Mountaineers. If they were to beat them they would move onto play the winner of the Arizona/Xavier game.
The Bulldogs have already beaten the Wildcats once, so they would probably be the favorite in that game.
College Basketball Futures Odds: Arizona Wildcats +550
The Arizona Wildcats are one of the most intruding teams left on this list in the Sweet 16. They have been playing some of their best ball as of late, and might have the most complete team left in the tournament.
Is this the year Sean Miller finally makes it to the final four and cuts down the nets?
College Basketball Futures Odds: UCLA Bruins +700
I am surprised to see the UCLA Bruins ahead of the Kentucky Wildcats in this list. The Bruins might have the toughest road to get to the Final Four.
But if they do make it to the Final Four, they will for sure be battle tested and ready for whoever they would face when they got there.
College Basketball Futures Odds: Michigan Wolverines +1800
The Michigan Wolverines seem to be everyone’s favorite Cinderella story after what happened to them on the way to the Big Ten tournament and how have they have played since.
But according to Vegas they aren’t just a Cinderella story, some believe they might have an honest shot in this tournament.
They have the 10th best odds to win the National Title in front of teams like Butler and Purdue.
College Basketball Futures Odds: Rest of the teams:
- Florida Gators +1200
- Kentucky Wildcats +1200
- Baylor Bears +1500
- Oregon Ducks +1500
- Wisconsin Badgers +1500
- West Virginia Mountaineers +1800
- Purdue Boilermakers +2000
- Butler Bulldogs +5000
- South Carolina Gamecocks +5000
- Xavier Bulldogs +10000
