The first team we like is the Kansas Jayhawks. Bill Self and his Jayhawks are likely going to be the top overall seed in the tournament. Kansas has just four losses on the season, and have won 12 straight games. The Jayhawks also have won the Big 12, 12 straight times. Despite being the top overall seed in the tournament, Kansas is not the top betting favorite. The Kansas Jayhawks are listed second according to the Vegas lines.

Second on our list is the Michigan State Spartans. Tom Izzo and his team have a chance at being a top seed as well, as they finished second in the Big Ten standings. The Spartans are playing great basketball, with sensational offensive play, and extremely toughness. Coach Izzo has been there done that with this program, which makes it even harder to pick against the Spartans. You can grab the Michigan State Spartans at +550.
The North Carolina Tar Heels are one of the best offensive teams in all of the nation. If Roy Williams and his Tar Heels start to figure out the ways on the defensive side of the ball, they will be extremely dangerous. The Tar Heels won the regular season title of the Atlantic Coast Conference. North Carolina has a ton of momentum, following that road win at the Duke Blue Devils.

The Kentucky Wildcats are next. The Wildcats, led by their head coach John Calipari are listed at +800. Kentucky was once again the SEC winner; this time splitting it with the Aggies of Texas A+M.

The final Betting Favorite to win March Madness is the senior laden Oklahoma Sooners. The Sooners finished in third place in the Big 12 Conference, winning 12 out of 18 games. The Sooners head in the to Big 12 tournament with a 24-6 record overall. Buddy Hield is the senior leader for the Sooners, and is one of the best players in all of college basketball.
