Baylor March Madness Odds: Can the Baylor Bears Repeat Last Year's Championship Run?

The Baylor Bears went on a historic run last season to win the National Championship. No team that played Baylor even came close to getting a win over the Bears. But this year feels a bit different.

Baylor is still really good this year but the Bears are now the hunted. Below are some of the odds on Baylor, if you're looking to bet them.

First Round Game

Spread: Baylor -21.5 (-110) (Bet $105 to Win $100)

Moneyline (-3000) vs. 16. Norfolk State (Bet $3000 to Win $100)

I don't condone betting $3000 to win $100 on Baylor, but do think it's reasonable to bet -21.5 on Baylor.

The Bears are an elite team on both ends of the floor and can force a ton of turnovers against Norfolk State. Norfolk State is turning the ball over 20% of the time while Baylor is earning nearly 23% of turnovers this season.

Norfolk State is dead meat if the Spartans can't get enough shot attempts. The Spartans live at the foul line but won't get there enough against Baylor.

Final Four

Baylor +240 (Bet $100 to Win $240)

The East Region has so many big-name brands on that side of the bracket. What I mean by this is that Baylor would have to face UNC or Marquette in the following game and then potentially St. Mary's or UCLA in the following game. There's also Texas, Purdue, and Kentucky in this bracket.

There's so much talent on this side of the bracket. Baylor is still the favorite for a reason but with so many premier coaches, you just never know what might happen.

National Championship

Baylor +1200 (Bet $100 to Win $1200)

I'd much rather take Baylor to win the Final Four than the Championship. It's hard to repeat being a National Champion. Baylor will be without Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua due to a knee injury but so far, Baylor has overcome that and has played tremendously in the Big 12.

Still, Baylor lost to Oklahoma in the first round of the Big 12 Tournament to Oklahoma. And remember, the Sooners aren't even in the NCAA Tournament. So that's a bit suspect.
