NCAA Championship Odds: 36.67% Of Bets On Gonzaga
Gonzaga is the clear favorite to win the NCAA Championship. The only undefeated team in the NCAA, Gonzaga is looking to become the first undefeated champion since Indiana in 1976. Gonzaga would also be the first non-power five undefeated NCAA champion since San Francisco in 1956.
The lack of history isn’t deterring oddsmakers. Gonzaga is the favorite with +300 odds. Gonzaga has only played a single single-digit game this season, an 87-82 victory over West Virginia. Every other game has been a blowout. However, Gonzaga does play in a weaker conference, the West Coast Conference has just three teams over .500. The conference only has two teams with 13 or more wins.
The weak conference helps, but Gonzaga has dominated everyone in their conference. In a Power-5 conference maybe Gonzaga plays a few more close games, but it’s hard to say they wouldn’t still be undefeated given their overall dominance.
Will Gonzaga be able to win six more games in a row, most of which will be against Power-5 schools? Oddsmakers and bettors have faith that’s exactly what’ll happen, as 36.67% bets have been placed on the Bulldogs.
