Betting on March Madness 2022?


Tuesday March Madness Odds

No. 16 Texas A&M Corpus (+3.5) vs. No. 16 Texas Southern

No. 12 Indiana (-3.5) vs. No. 12 Wyoming

Wednesday March Madness Odds

No. 16 Bryant (+2.5) vs. No. 16 Wright St.

No. 11 Notre Dame (+1.5) vs. No. 11 Rutgers

  • Rutgers is the choice: The Fighting Irish take on the Scarlett Knights in a first four matchup. Big game here with Rutgers poised to move into the first round against Alabama. Alabama will be on high alert against Rutgers, who has the advantage on the Ron Harper Jr.-led perimeter. It wouldn’t be shocking for this Big Ten team to make a run.

Thursday March Madness Odds

No. 11 Michigan (-2.5) vs. No. 6 Colorado St.

#13 South Dakota St. (+2.5) vs. #4 Providence

#9 Memphis (-2.5) vs. #8 Boise St.

  • Boise State is the choice: The Memphis Tigers, led by Penny Hardaway, take on Boise State. This is the highest seed Boise State has ever had. Memphis is an extremely young team with two reclassified players who should currently be seniors in high school. Support the Boise State Broncos who have a solid roster of young and veteran talent.

No. 15 Delaware (+15.5) vs. No. 2 Villanova

No. 10 Miami (+1.5) vs. No. 7 USC

  • USC is the choice: Pac-12 contender USC could be one of the overlooked teams in the Midwest region. Isaiah Mobley, brother of Cavaliers rookie Evan Mobley, uses his 6’10 height very effectively and had a terrific season. They should be in a good place to beat Miami and face off against Auburn.
