CRAWFORD BLOG | U of L (3-1) remains Vegas favorite to win it all

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The University of Louisville remains the favorite in Vegas to win the NCAA championship, with Indiana and Florida close behind, according to RJ Bell of Pregame.com.

Odds for the Cardinals to win it all have dropped to 3-1, with IU at 5-1 along with the University of Florida.

Next are Miami at 7-1, Ohio State at 8-1, Duke at 10-1 and Kansas at 12-1.

U of L's opponent on Friday night, Oregon, is at 60-1, but that doesn't make the Ducks the longest shot in the Sweet 16. There are two teams with longer odds, La Salle at 75-1 and Florida Gulf Coast at 100-1.

Other sportsbooks show similar movement. VegasInsider.com had Indiana opening the tournament as a 7-1 favorite to win it all. The Hoosiers are now at 8-1, with U of L the betting favorite at 9-2.

More from Pregame.com:

Before Sunday's games, only 7 of the 456 Sweet 16 teams since 1985 were seeded worse than No. 12.

On Sunday, two teams seeded worse than No. 12 advanced, No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast and No. 13 La Salle.

At least one double-digit seed has made the Sweet 16 in 27 of the past 29 years.

Before the tournament started, you could bet $1 to win $1,000 on Florida Gulf Coast winning the South Region. And you'd be two wins away from collecting.
