How to bet on March Madness: Future Bets to be the NCAA Champion in 2022

The NCAA basketball tournament is right around the corner, and today we will talk about the best way to bet the tournament. Of course, we won’t know the matchups for a couple of more weeks, so today, we are looking at betting the future! What does that mean? Simply, it means that you can bet on who eventually wins the 2022 Men’s basketball tournament right now. This means that if you like a favorite like Gonzaga, you will get better odds right now than you will after the tournament draw is done. Of course, it’s a risk because one of Gonzaga’s stars could go down before the tournament is even played, but you get better odds than waiting until the draw is selected. Today, we will break down the leading contenders and a few longshots that would pay off nicely if you make futures bet right now.

NCAA Future Bets on Men’s Champion in 2022

Gonzaga Bulldogs +380

Trust me; this is an excellent number to grab the Zags on, as it will probably drop some by the time of the tournament. Drew Timme, who leads the club in scoring (17.7 ppg), is the clear leader of the club, but the play of guard Andrew Nembhard is the reason why this offense is operating at such a high level. There are not enough superlatives to describe the production of freshman big-man Chet Holmgren. This is not the first team that Coach Mark Few has had that was a favorite to win it all. The Bulldogs are the most complete team in the country and can beat you in almost any way imaginable. As always, the question is whether a weak conference hurt the Bulldogs chances come March. In the end, I think there is better value to be had with other teams, but if you are convinced this is the Zags year, I will jump on this now!

Kentucky Wildcats +700

The Wildcats have a balanced scoring offense with four players averaging double digits, led by junior forward Oscar Tshiebwe (16.4 ppg, 15.3 RPG), who is dominating this season. The Wildcats have struggled somewhat when playing the better teams in the country. I have a hard time seeing the Wildcats playing consistently enough against quality competition to win it all. That being said, this is a fantastic team, but I don’t see them winning it all this season.

Arizona Wildcats +750

NBA lottery selection Bennedict Mathurin (17.0 ppg, 5.9 RPG) leads the Wildcats. The star guard continues to dominate, leading Arizona to a six-game winning streak, including victories over No. 13 UCLA and No.19 USC. Remember, in College Basketball, the key to winning it all is in the guard play, and Arizona has that. Sophomore forward Azuolas Tubelis has been stellar since his return from an ankle injury, and I really think Arizona at +750 is a significant number to bet. I would strongly consider betting Arizona as a futures bet to win the whole thing!

Purdue Boilermakers +950

Purdue’s Championship aspirations will go as far as point guard Jaden Ivey (17.4 ppg) can take them. I still envision his skills closely resembling UConn’s Kemba Walker back in 2011. The other worry with Purdue is the program’s history, which tends to follow up great regular seasons with disappointing results come NCAA tournament time. I would stay away from Purdue here, I think a Final Four run is possible, but I do not see them winning it all.

Kansas Jayhawks +1200

The Jayhawks lean heavily on the production of senior guard Ochai Ogbaji (19.9 ppg), who ranks 8th in the nation in three-point shooting converting at a 44.5 % clip. Christian Braun (15.3 ppg) and Jalen Wilson are the other two Jayhawks averaging double-digits in scoring. Kansas unsung player is senior forward David McCormack, and when he provides consistent scoring and rebounding production, the Jayhawks can beat anybody. I don’t see this team winning it all this year, and I would stay away from them on the future market.

Auburn Tigers +1200

The Tigers, to me, is an excellent futures bet! +1200 is an ideal number for a team that is well-coach and talented. Freshman forward Jabari Smith is the foundation piece for Bruce Pearl’s club, leading the team in scoring at 15.2 points per game. Auburn has been close to winning it all recently and will at worst be a number two seed. Jump on this one.

Duke Blue Devils +1500

Coach K’s last tournament ride, and at +1500, but this is not a team that will win a national title. If you are sentimental and think they might win it all on emotion, go ahead and take a shot, but the Blue Devils will come up short. Freshman Paolo Banchero leads the Blue Devils, and Freshman Trevor Keels (12.1 ppg) is making tremendous strides heading down the stretch ahead of the ACC Tournament; this is a young team, and they have been upset some this year, and I think they lack the consistency to win it all.

Houston Cougars +4000

I like this team’s chances, and at +4000, it is worth a risk. The Houston Cougars were rolling through conference play just two weeks ago, going a perfect 9-0 SU (5-4) and fresh off an 80-58 beatdown of Cincinnati on the road. Then they got derailed by back-to-back losses to SMU and Memphis, rebounded with a win against UCF, and most recently held on for a 76-74 overtime victory against Wichita State on Sunday. The Cougars were in the Final four just last year, and this is an experienced, well-coached team capable of doing it again. The Cougars lost leading scorer Marcus Sasser (17.7 points per game) and critical reserve Tramon Mark, to season-ending injuries before Christmas but have remained very efficient on the offensive end of the floor. The injury losses are concerning, but you don’t have to bet much at +4000 to get a good payout back.
