Bodog is the top seed when it comes to NCAA Tournament betting

This year’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament appears to be one of the most wide-open tourneys in recent years – and that could be good news for those basketball bettors at Bodog sportsbook. While the North Carolina Tar Heels were huge favorites going into last year’s Big Dance and came home with the title, the Heels aren’t likely to even get in the field this year.

It’s pretty much a lock that Kansas, Kentucky, Syracuse and Duke will be the four No. 1 seeds, but none of those four could be considered a lock Final Four team. Last year’s tournament was very chalk, as for the first time since seeding began, all 12 teams seeded No. 3 or better made it to the Sweet 16, and three No. 1 seeds reached the Elite Eight for the third straight year. There are probably about 20 or so teams that have a real shot at getting to Indianapolis for the Final Four this year, so it’s unlikely we see a repeat of the 2008 Final Four when all four No. 1 seeds made it for the first time.
