Mountain West Basketball: San Diego State has best odds to win NCAA Tournament

New, 1 comment

Three other MW teams join SDSU on Bovada's title odds list.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The sports-betting site Bovada.lv recently released its title odds for the 2015 NCAA Tournament, and four Mountain West teams made the 88-team list.

No surprise here as San Diego State has the greatest odds to win the title of any MW team at 50-1. The Aztecs are tied for the 10th-best odds with Ohio State, SMU and 2014 champion UConn.

UNLV comes in with the second-best odds in the MW at 150-1. That's tied for the 14th-best odds with Cincinnati and Providence.

Now those final two MW teams would have been anybody's guess before these odds were released. Would it be Anthony Drmic and the Boise State Broncos? The transfer-laden Colorado State Rams? The new-look New Mexico Lobos?

Turns out Bovada went with Craig Neal's New Mexico squad for one slot, giving the Lobos 200-1 odds of winning the 2015 NCAA Tournament. UNM tied with nine other teams for 15th-best title odds.

And Colorado State edged Boise State, making the list with 300-1 title odds. Those odds are tied with 16 other teams for 17th-best.

Here are the complete odds of every team.
