NCAA Basketball Final Four Proposition Betting Odds

–The NCAA Basketball Tournament aka ‘March Madness’ is one of the biggest betting events of the year.

–16 teams remain in the fight for the NCAA Championship.

–Only two of the four #1 seeded teams remain.

Only three games remain to determine the 2017 NCAA Basketball Champion. Two games on Saturday will determine the participants in Monday’s winner take all match for the National Championship. Here’s the TV schedule for the Final Four action:

(3) Oregon vs. (1) North Carolina 8:49 p.m. CBS

National Championship Game Monday, April 3

TBA vs. TBA 9:00 p.m. CBS


The main storylines for the Final Four–two of the teams are supposed to be here. That’s #1 seeds North Carolina and Gonzaga. Two of the teams aren’t supposed to be in the Final Four–that’s #7 seeded South Carolina and #3 seeded Oregon. The Gamecocks went through #2 seeded Duke, #3 seeded Baylor and #4 seeded Florida to advance to the Final Four for the first time in program history. Oregon upset #1 seeded Kansas to make the Final Four. The Gamecocks and Ducks are very similar in their commitment to nasty defense but it remains to be seen if they can stop the talented, athletic and versatile Tar Heels and Bulldogs. The quartet in the Final Four sets up the possibility of a huge upset winner of the National Championship though it won’t be a surprise if one of the traditional hoop powerhouses prevail.
