As one might expect with the only No. 1 seed who covered during the second round, the Kansas Jayhawks have taken over as the betting favorite on the odds to win the 2017 NCAA Tournament.
Gonzaga is probably headed to the Final Four. The Bulldogs won, 79-73.
They also lost by 21 points to West Virginia during the regular season, but the Bears scored 68 points in that game and were not struggling to reach 50 like on Friday night.
No. 2 seed Arizona minus-7.5 vs. Florida took care of business in the first two rounds of the tournament, defeating East Tennessee State and Virginia handily.

The Jayhawks are the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region, which holds its semifinals in Kansas City, Missouri. Only Xavier, Wisconsin, Michigan and SC have advanced beyond where their seeding would dictate they would go. The Jayhawks won both of their first games easily, beating UC Davis, 100-62, and then the No. 9 Michigan State Spartans, 90-70.
For Thursday's Sweet 16 openers, the Michigan Wolverines are 1.5-point favorites against the Oregon Ducks with a 146.5-point total. North Carolina is getting lots of love among the public but MI, the No. 7 seed in the Midwest Region, is a team who many Vegas insiders like at 7/2 to win the Midwest Region. The Jayhawks have made at least eight three-pointers while shooting 40 percent or better from behind the arc in each tournament game. His father LaVar has been in the news lately for making bold and braggadocios comments on his son Lonzo's ability, such as saying he's already then the Golden State Warriors point guard and two time NBA MVP, Stephen Curry.
UCLA and Kentucky will play against each other in the South region, where North Carolina is still alive and will play Butler in the only region that went chalk.
No. 4 seed Butler plus-7.5 vs. MI continues to have a wild month of March, which began with a team plane crash while departing for the Big Ten tournament (no one was seriously injured), and most recently included knocking off the No. 2 Louisville Cardinals. North Carolina earned those accolades, but at the moment the Heels aren't playing up to that level. Sixteen teams remain as they all will compete for the chance to make it to Phoenix, the site of this year's tournament's final four.
