The NIT Tournament field is set, the selection show is a wrap, and now it’s official because we have odds and spreads for all eight games at DraftKings Sportsbook.

This year’s NIT looks a bit different, with all games either at the University of North Texas Coliseum in Denton, or the Comerica Center in Frisco. Only 16 teams are participating instead of the previous 32, conference champions that didn’t make the NCAA Tournament weren’t invited, and games will play out while the NCAA Tournament is happening.

Here are odds for all first-round games in the 2021 NIT Tournament.
