Sports Gonzaga now has the best chance to win the NCAA Tournament

  • Published: , Refreshed:

Gonzaga is a slight favorite to win the NCAA men's basketball tournament, with Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight model giving them an 18% chance to cut down the nets in Glendale in two weeks. That is just slightly ahead of Kansas at 15%, with Kentucky the third-most-popular winner in the simulations at 11%.

In all, 11 of the 16 teams now have at least a 4% chance to be champions, with only a handful teams that would be considered long shots.
