March Madness continues! Another impressive upset victory has shown why this is the greatest tournament in sports, as North Texas won as a 13-seed against number four Purdue. North Texas was a big underdog, which means bettors won if they wagered on them. As for brackets, this certainly busted quite a few brackets.

Let’s take a look at North Texas’ odds in the second round, what markets you can wager on going forward, and who they will play this weekend.



North Texas upsets Purdue, will face Villanova in Second Round

The upsets continue in college basketball, as North Texas takes down Purdue in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. On the first day, we have seen a 15 seed, a 12 seed, and now a 13 seed win. North Texas won as a 13 seed, and will face Villanova in round two.

With how well North Texas played defense against Purdue, Villanova will be hard-pressed to score in the second round. Purdue certainly did not play well, but credit is due for North Texas as they certainly belong in the next round.

North Texas’ next game’s odds will be interesting to see, as they are the underdog again. Let’s take a look.
