Handicapping 2016 College Basketball Futures Odds
The first two rounds had a lot of drama, a lot of comebacks, and a little bit of everything you could hope for.
Things got going with 12 seeds Arkansas Little Rock and Yale knocking off the 5 seeds in their respective brackets. The upsets weren’t done there, in fact, they were just getting started.
Northern Iowa eliminated Texas and that was after the fact Hawaii eliminated California. The Round of 32 was the same way, filled with drama that saw Northern Iowa blow an 11 point lead in the final minute, combined with Wisconsin eliminating Xavier at the buzzer.
Below is 5 futures to consider when going forward in the Sweet 16.
Kansas Jayhawks 2016 College Basketball Futures Odds +325.
The overall number 1 seed in the tournament has had no problems so far.
Kansas put up 105 points in their first round game against Austin Peay as they dominated from the opening tip, shooting unconsciously from the outside, while dominating the inside.
In their Round of 32 game, even the final score of 73-61 didn’t describe how dominated the game was. Kansas had zero problems pulling out to a double digit lead early and when Uconn cut things to single digits midway through the 2nd half, the Jayhawks laid the hammer down.
Kansas will get Maryland here in the Sweet 16, a game they should be able to handle and then will get the 2 or 3 seed in Villanova or Miami.
North Carolina Tar Heels 2016 College Basketball Futures Odds +450.
The Tar Heels, like Kansas, had little problems through the first two rounds.
Against #16 seed Florida Gulf Coast, the Tar Heels handled Dunk City with ease en route to an 83-67 win. North Carolina flexed their strength and really dominated the post.
In the Round of 32, things were even easier against Providence. North Carolina once again imposed their will inside as they put up 85 points in an 85-66 win.
They’ll get the 5th seeded Hoosiers next and then with a win, they’ll see either Wisconsin or Notre Dame as the Badgers eliminated the #2 seed in the region.
Virginia Cavaliers 2016 College Basketball Futures Odds +575.
Virginia, like the rest of the 1 seeds, advanced, but they didn’t have things as easy on them.
The Cavaliers had no problem against #16 Hampton, but things against Butler in the next round weren’t as easy as expected.
Butler led at the half and even led with roughly 5 minutes to before Virginia grabbed the lead and used their stellar defense, that they’ve leaned on so much this season, to grab a few stops and put the game away.
They’ll get #4 seed Iowa State here and then deal with a double digit seed in #11 Gonzaga or #10 Syracuse.
Duke Blue Devils 2016 College Basketball Futures Odds +1800.
The Blue Devils had to grind through their opening games of the tournament as they took down #13 seed UNC Wilmington and then #12 Yale.
Both games saw Duke in close games down the stretch, but the Yale matchup was quite the scene. Duke led by 23 points before completely blowing it and having to hold off Yale late.
They’ll get the #1 seed Oregon and while it is the #1 seed in the West, Duke matches up well with them both inside and out.
Gonzaga Bulldogs 2016 College Basketball Futures Odds +2800.
Gonzaga has a lot of hedging opportunities ahead of them.
After upsetting Seton Hall and then beating Utah as a slim favorite, the Bulldogs run into #10 seed Syracuse, a very winnable game, and then will get either the #1 seed Virginia, or #4 seed Iowa State, two teams they matchup with well.
At the listed price, the Bulldogs can be a hedge should they get past this round, making them a very valuable play.
