Gonzaga Oddsmakers Favorites but Don’t Dare Overlook Baylor

Perennial West Coast Conference powerhouse Gonzaga are the oddmakers Even money (+100) Favorites to be one of the four Division I Men’s Basketball teams to make the Final Four in New Orleans but may not provide value anymore.

Drew Timme, Chet Holmgren and the Zags made it to the Final Four last year and even the Championship Game but Baylor showed Gonzaga who the better team was and defeated the Bulldogs, 86-70, winning outright as 4½-point Underdogs.

The Big 12 Conference has two great teams with solid chances to make the Final Four in The Big Easy in Baylor (8/1 to win National Championship, BetOnline) and Kansas (12/1) and looks to have better Final Four betting prospects than others.

Making it to the Men’s Final Four is one of the most difficult yet most memorable experiences in all Sports, with Regular Season play, Conference Tournaments, and then the NCAA Men’s Besketball Tournament itself climaxing March Madness.

The SEC is always deep and Kentucky (18/1) as well as hopefuls, Alabama (330/1), Auburn (20/1), LSU (22/1) and Tennessee (40/1). But the Crimson Tide (11-4 SU)

have already lost to Iona, Davidson, Memphis and now Missouri and aren’t all that.

Despite all of its success up in Spokane, Gonzaga (+750) has only made it to two Final Fours (2017, 20210, but from a Future market bettor’s standpoint and from a historical perspective, that’s two times in the last five years for the Bulldogs (40%).

One team to look at making a Final Four run is Big Ten Conference members Purdue (12/1) with the Boilermakers led by Trevion Williams and Jaden Ivey and able to beat absolutely anyone, anywhere at anytime with its veteran and tested Roster.

And the Big 10 Confernce has a number of quality teams who look like they could make a Sweet Sixteen Run but how realistic is it that this conference ends up with two of the Final Four teams in Lousiana on that first anticipated weekend of April?

With Illinois (28/1), Wisconsin (35/1), Michigan (35/1), Wisconsin (35/1), Ohio State (45/1), Michigan State (50/1), and Indiana (100/1) the Big 10 has much talents and some great players but I only see the Boilermakers stong enough.

The Wolverines are dealing with COVID-19 issues and Kofi Cockburn and the Fighting Illinois and EJ Liddell and the Buckeyes are good teams but not great teams and good teams just don’t advance far in the unforgiving NCAA Tournament.

With Selection sunday almost two months away, now is the time to use the better online basketball gambling sites to bet some Props now as Futures odds for the quality teams trying to make the 2021-22 Final Four a well as the 2021-22 NCAA Championship.
