What Are The Odds of Syracuse Winning the NCAA Basketball Championship

The odds of Syracuse winning the NCAA Basketball Championship were set at 20/1, which is definitely some great value.

Syracuse, ranked at number 11, fell to North Carolina State on Friday. 

The Orange have made 28% of its field goals attempts from 10 feet or longer in its last eight games, including 26% in its five losses. During the Orange's first 24 games (all wins), they shot 37% on such shots. They are 16-0 this season when they make at least a third of their attempts from 10+ feet.

USA Today predicts Syracuse will lose in the 2nd round.
Momentum is an area that isn't spotlighted enough as an ingredient for a jaw-dropping upset. Consider Syracuse on the wrong side of that. The Orange have been scrutinized since a perfect 25-0 record unraveled into a late-season stretch in which 'Cuse lost five of its final seven games. Jim Boeheim will be the first to tell you his team hasn't truly dominated opponents this season, evidenced in a bevy of close ACC victories to basement teams and a pair of head-scratching losses to Georgia Tech and Boston College.

That's where Western Michigan enters the mix. The Mid-American Conference tournament champs won't be the most hyped Cinderella sleeper. But there's enough weaponry to pull off the upset of the tournament. David Brown (19.4 ppg) and Shayne Whittington (16.3 ppg, 9.3 rpg) make for a potent inside-out presence that could counter 'Cuse's matchup 2-3 zone.
