March Madness Betting: Previewing the Sweet 16

March MadnessMarch Madness betting keeps on going, and after a week full of exciting college basketball action. After upsets were all over the place in the first couple of rounds, brackets have been busted left and right. Still, most of the favorites remain in the tournament.Powerhouses like Kentucky, Wisconsin, Arizona, Gonzaga and Duke are still on the race for the Final Four, but in the Eastern Region it has been bedlam, both number 1 and 2 seeds Villanova and Virginia have been knocked out of the tournament, and the region has been blown wide open for any team to make it through.

In the Midwest Region, things have been pretty much as one would expect, except for the upset that Wichita State pulled against Number 2 Kansas. They will face now Number 3 Notre Dame in a game that will be very tightly contested. The Wichita State Shockers are slight favorites to win this game and move on through to face the winner from the Kentucky and West Virginia game (spoiler alert, it is going to be Kentucky).

The West Region produced one of the most exciting moments of the tournament when 14 seed Georgia State knocked out number 3 seeded Baylor in thrilling fashion, but after that upset, the top seeded teams have reigned supreme. The number 1 seeded Wisconsin Badgers are going into the Staples Center to face the number 4 North Carolina Tar Heels in a game where they are -5½ March Madness betting favorites, and with good reason. This game seems like a prelude to their almost inevitable clash against the Arizona Wildcats who should not have any problems getting pass Xavier.

The UCLA bruins, somehow are still alive in the tournament and found themselves in the Sweet Sixteen against all odds. They will now face No. 2 Gonzaga in what should be their last appearance in this tournament. The bruins might be riding high on their Cinderella story, but the fact of the matter is that Gonzaga is the main candidate to face Duke in the Elite Eight round.

Finally, the East Region has been a wonderful chaos to watch, but for March Madness Betting purposes not so much. With Villanova and Virginia both out it is now pretty much anybody’s game in this region. However considering how things have unfolded, the two winners of that bracket are going to be Louisville and Michigan State. Both teams will be coming in as favorites in the tournament.
