Three live betting long shots who could win the NCAA tournament

Three live betting long shots who could win the NCAA tournament
 | News Article by

The Field of 68 NCAA tournament teams has been trimmed to a select – and sweet – 16 programs. And while many of these schools have looked like true national title contenders at times in their opening two games, only one can actually be crowned national champ.

Atop the adjusted NCAA tournament futures are power programs Villanova, Kansas, and Duke, but if you’re looking to make some real money from the Big Dance odds, these live long shots could be the best way to earn money with your march madness betting:

Texas A&M Aggies +2,500
The Aggies turned heads with their 21-point trouncing of North Carolina in the Round of 32, and now take on No. 3 Michigan in the Sweet 16. Texas A&M is among the top defensive teams in the country, shutting down opposing offenses to just over 40 percent from the field. More importantly, as it pertains to the tournament futures, it is ranked ninth in adjusted defensive efficiency – a tell-tale stat for Final Four teams year in and year out.

The Aggies are big and brawny on the inside and don’t give up much in terms of rebounding, which limits second-chance buckets and doesn’t allow quicker foes to push the tempo in transition. On the season, Texas A&M hasn’t been a great shooting team from outside but they’ve been hot in the tournament, hitting 16 for 40 from distance during the Big Dance, including a 10-for-25 performance from outside in the win over UNC.

Florida State Seminoles +4,500
Florida State was baptized in the fires of the ACC all season and has plenty of wins over top competition, so the Seminoles won’t get rattled as they advanced. The calling card for Leonard Hamilton’s program is intense full-court pressure defense that has shut down the first two tournament opponents, limiting Missouri to 54 points and then forcing Xavier to crumble in the second half of their Round of 32 matchup.

The Noles are also dangerously deep and run six long into their bench. That not only helps out with playing that pace on defense but also works in FSU’s favor the further it goes in the bracket – especially when playing on just one day of rest. This team is long and athletic and can keep up on the scoreboard, averaging more than 81 points per game this season.

West Virginia Mountaineers +1,200
The Mountaineers don’t have as spicy a price tag as Texas A&M or Florida State, but West Virginia is a two-pronged threat to any NCAA opponent. Bob Huggins’ program is best known for its full-court pressure, exploiting ball handlers for 16.5 turnovers per game. In the NCAA, WVU got 16 turnovers out of Murray State and 18 out of Marshall but now face a true test in the Round of 16 against Villanova, which averages only 10.4 turnovers – 14th fewest in the country.

However, the Mountaineers aren't solely dependent on points off turnovers. They are active from beyond the arc, shooting 24.5 3-point attempts and knocking down 8.8 of those per game. West Virginia is 23 for 49 from 3-point range through its first two games - 47 percent – and if it continues to stay hot, there might not be much opponents can do on defense. The Mountaineers also possess one of the top players in the country in 6-foot-2 guard Jevon Carter, who has been excellent in the NCAA, scoring 21 and 28 points in those first two tourney victories.
