Possible Long Shot March Madness Winner Bets

Written by on February 13, 2016

Do you love betting on long shots that offer a much higher return than their favored counterparts? Are you looking for some long shot college basketball teams that have the potential to pull off some upsets over the course of the coming March Madness national championship basketball tournament? Well, if you answered ‘Yes’ to either of the aforementioned queries, then you’ve come to the right place! Thanks to the bettor-friendly management at and this expert NCAAB odds betting analysis, you’re going to find out all about four long shot national title contenders that could upset the entire apple cart. With that said, let’s get started.

Good Long Shot Bets To Win The 2016 NCAAB Championship

Texas A&M 30/1

The Aggies (18-6) may be in fourth place in the SEC right now, but they’ve shown they can play with just about any team in the country by beating teams like Gonzaga, No. 21 Baylor and No. 14 Iowa State. The Aggies average a respectable 76.3 points per game (115th), but really excel at the defensive end of the floor where they limit their opponents to just 65.3 points per game (39th). Make no mistake about it, in a one-game situation, the Aggies could very well beat anyone.

Miami 30/1

The 12th-ranked Hurricanes (18-4) are in third place in the ACC, just one game behind nationally-ranked No. 9 North Carolina and No. 7 Virginia, but the fact of the matter is that the Canes can beat anyone on any particular night as they proved in beating a now, unranked Duke team late last month. Miami ranks a solid 78th in scoring (78.0 ppg) and an even more encouraging 48th in points allowed (66.1 ppg). The Hurricanes also shoot the rock extremely well from the field (47.9%), ranking 28th in the nation while draining a blistering 76.0 percent of their free throws (12th).

Indiana 50/1

Indiana (19-4) may be just outside the Top 25 right now, but the Hoosiers can score the ball with any team in the country as they rank 11th in scoring (84.1 ppg). Indiana has four double-digit scorers on their roster and has recorded quality wins over Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Ohio State and Michigan, leading me to believe they could pull off more than their share of upsets against lesser talented offensive teams once the NCAA Tournament gets underway.

USC 65/1

No. 23 USC (18-5) is offering some fantastic value for a team that is among the nationally ranked. The Trojans are absolutely explosive offensively (84.0 ppg, 12th) and can score the ball on the best defenses in the country. The Trojans beat No. 17 Arizona in overtime in early January and have beaten a very good UCLA team twice this season. The bad news is that USC has allowed 83 points or more in all five of their losses this season. If the Trojans play any sort of defense, which is questionable at this point in the season, they could surprise!
