Kansas, Duke Headline the Favorites in William Hill’s Second Batch of Conference Tournament Futures

After 14 conference tournaments tipped off in the past week, college basketball fans get a second batch with 20 more entering the fold over the next few days. William Hill has released the odds for every team to win its respective league tournaments, including from all six power conferences.

The ACC tournament kicks off on Tuesday, with No. 4 seed Duke serving as the 3/2 favorite in Greensboro. No. 2 seed Louisville and top seed Florida State follow at 14/5 and 3/1 respectively.

The other five power conferences are set to begin on Wednesday.

Kansas at -150 is the biggest chalk of any of the power-conference tournaments, as the top-ranked Jayhawks enter as winners of 16 straight. Baylor has the next-lowest odds to win the Big 12 tournament at 13/5, and it would be the Bears’ first time cutting down the nets in Kansas City.

There was a three-way tie for first place in the Big East between Creighton, Villanova and Seton Hall, and unsurprisingly those teams find themselves atop the board to win the tournament at Madison Square Garden. Creighton and Villanova are both 3/1, as the Wildcats try to win their fourth straight Big East tournament. Seton Hall is right behind the co-favorites at 7/2.

Michigan State is the 11/5 favorite for the Big Ten tournament, while Kentucky grabs the top spot in the SEC at 12/5 odds. Out west, Oregon leads the way at 2/1 to win a second straight Pac-12 tournament in Las Vegas.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the biggest longshots to win a power-conference tournament are Nebraska (5000/1) and Northwestern (1000/1) in the Big Ten as well as Boston College (1000/1) in the ACC.

Check out the odds for every team to win the 20 conference tournaments beginning the week of March 9 below along with current odds for the teams remaining in conference tournaments that started this past week.
