The 2019 March Madness brackets are out and online sportsbook bettors have started placing their bets – and they want Duke.
DraftKings Sportsbook have revealed that 33% of all wagers which they have taken on March Madness since the conclusion of Selection Sunday have been on Duke winning the tournament.
The Blue Devils are the top seed and are the +210 favorites with DraftKings to win the NCAAB Tournament and so it is no surprise that bettors are backing them. It is, perhaps, a surprise at just how much money is being laid down early at such a short price.
March Madness is known for shocks and surprises but the other favorites; Gonzaga and North Carolina, are also attracting attention. Michigan State are the only team priced at bigger than +1000 that have gained more than 5% of the public support
