The first round of the NCAA Tournament is in the books and while the two days featured plenty of upsets, not many of them came from the South region. The top five seeds advanced to Round 2 with just one double-digit seed remaining in the field from the region.
Let’s take a look at the odds of some of its top contenders at DraftKings Sportsbook as we enter the second round of March Madness.
Here are the odds for each remaining team in the South region to make it to the Final Four entering the second round of the tournament. The top-seeded Arizona Wildcats remain the betting favorite with the No. 3 seed Tennessee Volunteers following behind.
