Michigan also has some of the best March Madness experience in recent years as this is their second Elite 8 run in the last three tournaments.
Also, when talking about experience, they have one of the more seasoned teams in the country as they have a total of 10 players that are either juniors or seniors and have the experience playing at this level. With that being said, they can certainly use that experience in the Elite 8 and possibly in the National Championship game if they make it that far.
Arkansas Razorbacks Odds
For those bettors that are looking for longer odds to bet on in March Madness, the Arkansas Razorbacks are the team to do so. They have a tough matchup in the Elite 8 with Baylor, however, if they make it past Baylor, they would solidify themselves as one of the top remaining teams in the tournament.
Also, their odds right now offer one of the biggest payouts of any team remaining in the Elite 8. They have shown that they have what it takes to make it this far in the tournament and are certainly worth looking out for.
All in all, it is best to jump in on a team now before the Final Four and National Championship game come around for the best possible payout.
