Being a head coach is one of the most thankless tasks in the world. Yes, these guys get paid a ton of money, but save for a few of the elite coaches in the game, there really isn’t any such thing as job security. For many coaches, it’s all about moving up the ranks and landing one of the big jobs.

Purdue has been quite impressive in wins over Old Dominion and defending national champion Villanova – the Boilers crushed the Wildcats 87-61 on Saturday. Carsen Edwards (42 points) established a school record with nine 3-pointers. Purdue’s 26-point advantage against Villanova was the Wildcats’ worst loss in NCAA tournament history.

Let’s dive into this year’s guide!
March Madness History
As we’re sure you know, March Madness is one of the largest and most exciting sporting events of the year. The entire March Madness tournament is single elimination bracket consisting of 68 teams. The 68 NCAA teams battle in seven rounds to be title titled National Champion.
The tournament gets really heated when the final four teams are left, appropriately named “The Final Four”. The Final Four is where the majority of March Madness wagers are made, with gamblers making the most money.
However, if you’re not betting on the regular bracket or games, you’re missing out on quite a bit of cash. Let’s break down the top teams of the tournament, and who to watch before the Final Four.
March Madness Odds to Make the Money:
Duke Odds (+1400):
The Duke Blue Devils are currently placed at +200 to win the NCAA March Madness tournament. This means that you will double your wager if they win. Most gamblers are going to be placing their money on the Duke Blue Devils to win March Madness, as it’s a pretty safe bet.
However, like most teams, Duke is only one injury away from losing their winning spot. We suggest placing a small wager on Duke while placing the bulk of your money on another prospect team.
Gonzaga Odds (+900)
Gonzaga seems to be the team second in the contention to win March Madness, positioned at +900. Gonzaga has a legitimate chance to win the NCAA Tournament, and placing money on them at their current odds would be a great choice and win for any seasoned gambler.
Virginia Odds (+1000)
The Cavaliers continue to strive as a competitive tournament team. Making it to the Final Four shouldn’t be difficult for the Cavs. The real challenge will be when they face Duke. The Blue Devils are the only team in the regular season who have beat Virginia.
The Cavs are likely going to be in your Final Four bracket. And, if Zion Williamson shows up to their predicted matchup, at +1000, that’s a pretty nice payout.
Michigan Odds (+1400)
Michigan has been trying to hold on and clutch a Final Four spot. As last year’s runner up, they’re ready to fight hard for the Championship title.
Can they beat Villanova this year? That’s the real question. +1400 is a great payout if you’re a risk taker looking to score big. After nearly winning it all in 2018, can they come back on top this season?
Kentucky Odds (+1400)
The Wildcats should be a top dog during the NCAA Tournament. However, they haven’t had much luck against the spread. Their early success will depend on the teams Kentucky is placed against.
Should they face Louisville, Colombia or Columbus, they may be taking an elimination. Take your chances at +1400, but we’d suggest paying attention to their Tournament schedule.
