2022 March Madness Odds: 3 Sleeper Teams That Can Win the NCAA Tournament

If you're in a smaller pool, picking a sleeper to win the NCAA Tournament probably isn't the smartest. However, in a larger pool where you need to stand out and beat 100 or more different brackets, selecting a sleeper to go far in the tournament and potentially win it all is pretty much necessary.

Here are three teams outside the one, two or three seeds, that have a chance at winning the NCAA Tournament.

March Madness Odds

1. UCLA Bruins +1800 (Bet $100 to win $1800)

The UCLA Bruins are a four-seed in the NCAA Tournament this season. No route is easy in the NCAA Tournament, but UCLA would first have to defeat Akron and then likely take on St. Mary's and then Baylor to reach the Elite Eight.

If UCLA was able to get by, UCLA would likely have to face Kentucky and then beat the Wildcats to earn a Final Four spot.

After last year's success, UCLA has a lot of eyes on them. The Pac-12 proved that it was a much better conference last season with multiple teams making a run at the Finals, including UCLA, who made it to the Final Four.

The Bruins are limiting turnovers to 13.4% and have been above-average in almost every defensive category, including turnover percentage, rebounding percentage, and effective field goal percentage.

The Bruins are built to win it all. If a couple of bounces go the Bruins' way, watch out! Click here for complete March Madness betting odds

2. Houston Cougars +2800 (Bet $100 to win $2800)

Houston is a five-seed without Tramon Mark and Marcus Sasser. What the Cougars have done is pretty astounding. The offense is dominating the glass, earning 37.8% of offensive rebounds and the defense is holding teams to a 43.5% effective field goal percentage.

Opponents are literally shooting 29% from deep and 43.5% from inside the arc against Houston this season. If the defense can keep up that level of play, the Cougars are going to be a real threat this season.

Bet $10, win $200 if EITHER TEAM hits a 3-Pointer

However, eventually, Houston will run into Arizona and Arizona is just as good as Houston and probably a little more talented. So bet this while understanding it's a long shot!

3. USC Trojans +20000 (Bet $100 to win $20000)

The Midwest looks like complete chaos. But out of that chaos, it could be USC coming out on top. The Trojans are shutting down opponents inside the arc to 41.6% from the field. Then on the offensive end, USC is earning 33.8% offensive rebounds. USC's road seems kind of easy. First USC needs to get by Miami. After that, USC will get Auburn and Auburn has really struggled on the road in the second half of the season.

After that, it's anyone's guess who USC will play but ultimately, USC matches up well with Wisconsin, LSU, or Iowa State when it comes down to it. The one interesting game will be USC against Kansas if it gets to that point, USC will have its work cut out for them. But by the Elite Eight, every team will.
