March Madness Odds Updated for 2023 National Championship
What a wild first and second rounds of the NCAA Tournament with two No. 1 seeds already out Big Ten regular-season and tournament champion Purdue, which has the National Player of the Year in Zach Edey, was stunned by No. 16 Fairleigh Dickinson 63-58 on Friday, just the second No. 1 team to lose in Round 1 ever.

Purdue’s 58 points were its second-lowest total of the season (Maryland – 54). Fairleigh Dickinson entered the game with the fifth-worst defensive efficiency in the country. The Boilermakers lost their first neutral-site game of the season, ending the year with a 7-1 neutral-site record.
Zach Edey tallied 21 points, 15 rebounds, three blocks and an assist. It marked his 27th double-double of the season (one off the school record set by Caleb Swanigan in 2017) and his 39th career double-double. Edey finished the season with 757 points, 438 rebounds, 72 blocked shots and 52 assists. He set the school record for most rebounds in a season (438) and is the first player nationally in the last 30 years to have at least 750 points, 400 rebounds, 70 blocks and 50 assists in a season. Edey is the only player in Big Ten history with 750 points and 400 rebounds in a season.
No Big Ten school has won a national title since Michigan State in 2000 and only the seventh-seeded Spartans are still standing this year. They are +3300 to win it all and face No. 3 Kansas State in the Sweet 16. Michigan State defeated No. 2 Marquette in Round 2 despite only making two 3-pointers in the game (2-of-16 shooting from 3), the second-fewest three-pointers by MSU this season (0 vs. Illinois).
Michigan State is in the Sweet 16 for the first time since reaching the Final Four in 2019. Tom Izzo will be making his 15th appearance in the Sweet 16. Izzo is a remarkable 24-7 in the second game of the weekend during NCAA Tournament play and 15-4 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Izzo now has the most wins (16) as a lower seed by a head coach in NCAA Tournament history (Jim Boeheim, Syracuse, 15).
The Pac-12 hasn’t won a title since 1997 when Arizona did it. The second-seeded Wildcats were a popular pick to reach the Final Four this time but were upset by No. 15 Princeton in Round 1, just the 11th time that a No. 15 beat a No. 2. Arizona became the first school to have it happen twice, also losing to No. 15 Santa Clara and Steve Nash in 1993.
That leaves only fellow No. 2 seed UCLA alive in the Pac-12, with the Bruins at +750 to win it all. They are in the Sweet 16 for a third straight year and face No. 3 Gonzaga in a marquee matchup on Thursday. UCLA has now advanced to the NCAA Tournament’s Sweet 16 (regional semifinals) in six of the past 10 seasons (2014, 2015, 2017, 2021, 2022 and 2023). The Bruins are seeking their first appearance in the Elite Eight since advancing to the Final Four in 2021.
No. 1 overall seed Alabama is the +360 title favorite. The Tide outscored No. 8 seed Maryland by 17 points in the second half to cruise to a 73-51 victory Saturday night in the NCAA Tournament second round. The Crimson Tide are in their second Sweet 16 appearance in the last three years and ninth showing in program history. The Tide’s margin of victory in its two games in Birmingham was 21.5 points per contest and included two of the five top margin of victories in the program’s tournament history.
Head coach Nate Oats improved to 10-3 (.769) in 13 postseason games while at the helm of the Alabama men’s basketball program. Oats also improved to 4-2 (.667) in six NCAA Tournament appearances at Alabama, including a pair of Sweet 16 showings. Bama faces No. 5 San Diego State in the Sweet 16.
The longest-shot left on the board is No. 15 Princeton at +10000 to win the title after upsetting No. 2 Arizona and No. 7 Missouri. However, we expect the Tigers to lose their Sweet 16 game vs. Creighton (+1100) with the Bluejays as 10-point favorites.
After suffering regular-season losses to teams like Delaware (234th on KenPom), Brown (173rd) and Dartmouth (260th), there were no indications the Ivy League regular-season and tournament champions would somehow make a run to its first Sweet 16 appearance since 1967.
These are the best moments from Sunday’s Second Round
