PointsBet SECOND CHANCE
Elite Eight of March Madness 2021 kicked off on Monday when the Houston Cougars knocked out Oregon State to book their place in the Final Four. Baylor then cruised past the Arkansas Razorbacks that same day to join Houston.
This left two more places up for grabs in the Final Four. Gonzaga’s 30th win of the season came on Tuesday after defeating USC 85-66, followed by a narrow victory for heavy tournament underdogs UCLA against the Michigan Wolverines.
Now we have our NCAA Tournament Final Four. Here are the Final Four and their odds to win NCAA Tournament 2021 (odds at DraftKings Sportsbook):
- Gonzaga (-250)
- Baylor (+250)
- Houston (+500)
- UCLA (+1800)
Gonzaga’s NCAA Tournament Chances
As the odds to win the NCAA Tournament suggest, Gonzaga are strong favorites to be crowned champions on Monday, April 5. In fact, Gonzaga advanced to its second Final Four with an aggregate margin of victory of 96. This aggregate margin of victory is better than that of North Carolina in 2009, the 21st century’s most dominant national champion.
Gonzaga are currently 14-point favorites at the sportsbooks for their Final Four matchup with UCLA and it would be a huge shock if they were to fall at this hurdle. This bettor at William Hill will be praying Gonzaga continues to dominate for the remainder of the tournament.
Baylor’s NCAA Tournament Chances
A Gonzaga-Baylor matchup in the Championship game has seemed almost inevitable for quite some time now. Everyone wants it. At +250 odds to win the NCAA Tournament, Baylor are comfortably second-favorites.
They take on Houston on Saturday and are 5-point favorites to get the job done. The Baylor Bears have reached the Final Four for the first time since 1950, but many will be tipping them to progress even further.
Houston’s NCAA Tournament Chances
For the first time in Final Four history, Texas has two representatives. At +500 odds, Houston is not expected to beat its Texan counterparts. But, anything can happen.
It is worth noting that the last team from Texas to win the NCAA Tournament was Texas Western back in 1966. This is an exciting year for the state and its programs.
UCLA’s NCAA Tournament Chances
A huge upset on Tuesday has resulted in UCLA’s presence in the Final Four. After Tuesday’s victory for UCLA, we are now at 14 upsets and counting this March Madness.
Thanks to UCLA, the PAC-12 flag is still flying. However, if the sportsbook odds and general March Madness chat is anything to go by, the flag won’t be flying for much longer. At +1800 odds to win it all, if UCLA are crowned NCAA Tournament Champions then there will be a lot of losing bets out there.
When is NCAA Tournament Final Four?
The NCAA Tournament Final Four will take place on Saturday, April 3 at the Luca Oil Stadium Unity. The winners from both semi-finals will then matchup in the National Championship on Monday, April 5.
All Final Four games will be broadcast in the United States live on TBS.
