March Madness strikes again! The Syracuse Orange were the last team in the tournament, and have now won two straight in upset fashion to advance to the Sweet 16 and dramatically increase their odds to win the title. Jim Boeheim and his son Buddy will advance to the Sweet 16 and look to make a run in the NCAA Tournament. It is odd calling the Syracuse Orange a “cinderella story”, but they are the 11 seed despite the prestige of the program.

Let’s take a look at Syracuse’s odds to win the NCAA Tournament, who they will play in the Sweet 16, and more.



Syracuse Upsets West Virginia, Advances to Sweet 16

The Orange already defeated San Diego State, and now they have taken down West Virginia en route to the Sweet 16. Syracuse will play Houston on Saturday, March 27th. Can the zone and clutch shooting of the Orange carry them into the Elite 8? Time will tell.

The favorite will certainly be Houston as the higher seed, but Syracuse has played very well. Let’s take a look at the odds for Syracuse to win the title, in the Sweet 16, and more.


Syracuse NCAA Tournament Odds Rise After Upset Win

There is no more doubting Syracuse! The public has certainly bet against the Orange, but it likely will not do that again in the next round depending on the winner of Rutgers and Houston. As far as the NCAA Tournament odds go, Syracuse had extremely low odds at DraftKings Sportsbook to win the whole thing, but that has changed. Let’s take a look.

Round Syracuse Odds to Win NCAA Tournament
Opening Odds +10000
Second Round Odds +5500
Current Odds (at FanDuel) +3600

The best odds are currently at FanDuel Sportsbook, where you can get the Orange at +3600 to win the National Championship, but those odds are expected to drop very quickly. Hop in before it does.

Syracuse vs. Houston Odds

Team Spread Moneyline Total
Syracuse +6 +215 o140
Houston -6 -265 u140

Syracuse opens as a six-point underdog against Houston, but will be a popular bet for the public given their success through two games. Houston is definitely higher-ranked, but six points will be a bit too much for some bettors.
