The South Region is expected to be won by Kentucky and if anyone upsets the number one seed, it will be considered one of the bigger upsets of the NCAA tournament. While March Madness is known for buzzer beaters, March Madness brackets and big upsets, the oddsmakers are not expecting to see the big upset in the South.

Kentucky, who did show they can be beat in their loss to Vanderbilt in the SEC tournament is the odds on favorite to win the South Region at -2/1 with Duke +3/1 and Baylor +6.5/1 next in line. One team with long shot odds that could be worth a flyer is the Indiana Hoosiers at 12/1 odds. Here is the full list of odds on who will win the 2012 NCAA Regionals – South Region.

Odds have been posted on who will win the Big Ten Tournament.

Michigan State looked like the team to beat but have struggled as of late. They are 24-7 overall and 13-5 in Big Ten play. Against the spread, the Spartans are 19-10 overall, a great money maker for sports bettors. That includes a solid 12-5 ATS record at home, 7-5 ATS on the road, 15-9 ATS as a favorite and 4-1 ATS as a dog. They have been solid all-around and are one of the favorites to make a run in the March Madness tournament.

The Big Ten is a very competitive division this year with several quality teams. Ohio State now looks like the favorite with a 25-6 overall and 13-5 against the Big Ten. They have been okay against the point-spread but nothing spectacular. The Buckeyes are 15-12 ATS including 10-6 at home, 5-6 away, 14-11 as a favorite and 1-1 ATS as a dog.

Michigan is 23-8 overall and 13-5 in the Big Ten. They are 17-11 ATS including 9-5 ATS at home, 8-6 ATS on the road, 9-6 as a favorite and 8-5 as a dog.

Wisconsin, another team that could make noise is 12-6 in the Big Ten and 23-8 overall. They are 15-13 ATS including 8-8 ATS at home, 7-5 ATS on the road, 12-11 as a favorite and 3-2 as a dog.

Here are the odds to win the Big Ten Tourney

They have covered two in a row and won 22 straight overall.

The oddsmakers are offering Kentucky to win the SEC Tournament at about -255 with the field available at +215.

Syracuse has been one of the best teams in college basketball the entire season and are big favorites to win the Big East. The Orange are 30-1 overall including 17-1 in conference. Other teams in the Big East that could possibly make some noise is Marquette who is 25-6 and 14-4 against the Big East, along with Notre Dame (21-10, 13-5), Georgetown (22-7, 12-6), South Florida (19-12, 12-6), Louisville (22-9, 10-8) and Cincinnati (22-9, 12-6). Seton Hall is 11-1 outside the Big East but struggled with an 8-10 conference record.

Here are a few pointspread trends to note for some of the Big East.

Marquette is 5-1 ATS as a dog.
Georgetown is 8-5 ATS on the road.
Cincinnati is 4-9 ATS at home.
Seton Hall is 9-4 ATS at home.

It’s been a down year for Connecticut as they are 18-12 overall and 8-10 against the Big East. They’ll need another big run in the conference tourney but they get a big boost now that head coach Jim Calhoun has returned to the bench.

The oddsmakers have the following as odds to win the Big East Tournament

Cincinnati             +1000

Connecticut         +1200

Georgetown        +500

Louisville              +800

Marquette            +250
