The South Region features the No. 1 overall seed, Alabama, and is a strong favorite to advance from the South at +160. The next highest team, Arizona, is +375. If bettors do not believe in Alabama, whether because of talent or the possible off-court distractions, they can bet that the team will not win the South Region at -195.

  • Howard +25000

Finally, the East Region features Purdue as the No. 1 seed, which is a +250 favorite to advance. While not as bunched up at the top as the West, this region features seven teams with +1200 odds or better to advance, which is the most of any region. Marquette, Tennessee and Duke follow Purdue on the odds board at +400, +500 and +550, respectively. The East Region odds from Circa Sports are below:
