With March Madness fast approaching for 2023 (where has the time gone?) teams are gearing up to make their final moves up and down the brackets in anticipation of Selection Sunday March 12.
But it is never too early to take a look at which teams might win a national championship on April 3 in Houston, as the winter sports season ends and we turn the calendar to spring.
Right now, it is not the teams before this campaign started that are getting a lot of the hype–although defending champion Kansas is right there to repeat–but teams like Houston, Alabama, Purdue, UCLA, Baylor, and Arizona.
The winner of this tournament usually comes from the top seed line, so make sure you pay attention when you try to pick a winner, although the second seeds have come up big as well a few times in the last 15 years.
Here is a look at the tournament, March Madness betting preview, odds and New York sportsbook bonuses for NCAA Men’s tournament free bets.

- Texas +2200

Betting Prediction for March Madness 2023
Any of the top eight teams are decent plays to go to the Final Four, but we may throw out Purdue because of its tournament history. In fact, the Big Ten teams might all get tossed.
We might look West for two of the teams, with UCLA and Arizona both playing very well, and possibly add Houston and Alabama.
If the winner is a top seed, we think you have to take Houston to win, and use Alabama and UCLA. Can Kansas repeat? It is extremely difficult.
