According to one betting book in Las Vegas, Michigan has the best odds to win the whole shebang

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-West Regional-Texas A&M vs Michigan Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Following the bludgeoning of the Texas A&M Aggies in the Sweet 16, the Michigan Wolverines now have the best odds to win the NCAA Tournament according to one of the odds makers out in Las Vegas.

The Westgate Las Vegas Superbook now has Michigan at 3-to-1 odds to win it all, the best odds of the remaining tournament teams.

Should Michigan get by the Florida State Seminoles in the Elite Eight, its Final Four matchup will be against either 11 seed Loyola-Chicago or 9 seed Kansas State, both of which are seeded well below Michigan and far behind in the KenPom rankings.

There is no doubt the book makers in Las Vegas have played out that exact scenario, which is more than likely a huge reason why Michigan’s odds are so favorable.

Regardless, Michigan has a heavyweight fight scheduled with Florida State in the Elite Eight tomorrow, as previously mentioned. And if their odds are this good now, they can only improve should they take care of business with the Seminoles.
