College Basketball Tournament: Notable Futures Payouts for Every Remaining Team

Bet college basketball with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.

Many William Hill bettors have college basketball futures tickets that are still alive, however which bets have the most on the line?

We dug up the most noteworthy championship and regional futures for every Sweet 16 participant placed at any point during the 2020-21 season at William Hill.

The biggest remaining college basketball championship futures wager is on Michigan. An Illinois bettor put $30,000 on Michigan +800 back in late February, and then placed another $30,000 on Michigan +550 a couple days later. If the Wolverines were to win the national title, the total payout on those wagers would be $465,000.

The largest total potential payout on a singular championship futures wager, however, is on a long shot. A Nevada bettor dropped $400 during the start of the NCAA tournament on Oregon State 750/1 for a total potential payout of $300,400.

Two other significant long shot championship wagers on teams that are playing this weekend are $1,000 on USC 200/1 for a total potential payout of $201,000 and $200 on Loyola Chicago 1000/1 for a total potential payout of $200,200.

One team that drew notable championship bets right before the NCAA tournament tipped off is Florida State. Two separate wagers from Washington, D.C. bettors have come in on the Seminoles, one for $4,900 on Florida State 50/1 ($249,900 total potential payout) and the other for $9,500 on Florida State 25/1 ($247,000 total potential payout).

What about the biggest total potential payout on the current title favorite? Gonzaga leads the way at William Hill Nevada at +130 after staying atop the board for the entire season. A New Jersey bettor put down $15,000 on Gonzaga +800 back in late November for a total potential payout of $135,000.

The third No. 1 seed left in the field has also attracted a sizable futures wager, though this one just needs two more victories to cash. A Nevada bettor staked $25,000 on Baylor +175 to win the South Region for a total potential payout of $68,750.

Two long shot regional futures wagers are still in it too. A New Jersey bettor has $100 on Oral Roberts 1000/1 to win the South Region for a total potential payout of $100,100, while a Nevada bettor risked $3,000 on UCLA 18/1 to emerge from the East Region for a total potential payout of $57,000.
