The Sweet 16 Betting Odds - 2018 March Madness - Basketball graphic. The NCAA Men's Basketball tournament will pick back up later this week when the "Sweet 16" gets underway.

As is usually the case, the NCAA tournament has provided plenty of surprises, with many of the favourites to win the tournament already having been bounced from the proceedings. This is standard fare for the tournament, as is the reason why millions of tournament brackets all over the world get busted so quickly.

As of this moment, there is no real dominant favourite to win the tournament, as Villanova is listed at 4.5-5 at most sports books to win, while the likes of Duke, Virginia and Kansas are also seen as having great chances of winning as well.

The biggest mismatch of the "Sweet 16" is currently seen as being Duke vs Syracuse, as Duke is a big 1.14 favourite to win.

The closest game, on the other hand, is likely to be Texas Tech vs Purdue, as both teams are around a coin flip to win.
