2021 NCAA DI Men’s Basketball Tournament Winning State Odds
- Texas EVEN
- Washington +215
- Illinois +360
- Michigan +800
- Florida +2200
- Ohio +1500
- Any Other State +550
Each of these teams have a fair chance to win the National Championship as the four of them are scattered out into three different regions of the bracket that way each of them has a chance of making it to the Final Four. With all four teams being such powerhouses, Texas would be a smart bet to make.
Washington March Madness Odds
The state of Washington has the second shortest odds being that Gonzaga has the shortest odds to win the National Championship. They have proven that they can play and beat just about any team in the country and it’s not even close.
The Zags went undefeated this season and will look to extend their historic title run into the March Madness Tournament. All in all, of all the states on the odds board, Washington would have to be the safest bet to make.
Illinois March Madness Odds
The two notable teams in March Madness that reside in Illinois are the Illinois Fighting Illini and the Loyola Chicago Ramblers. However, both of these teams are in the same region of the bracket with Illinois being the top seed and Loyola Chicago being the eighth seed.
That means that they would have to face each other in the second round of the college basketball tournament which would ultimately eliminate one of the schools. With that said, Illinois is clearly the better school of the two and has a real shot of actually winning March Madness to begin with as they have the second shortest odds on the NCAA Tournament odds board.
