Selection Sunday is relatively stress-free for the national title contenders.

Those that were bound for a top seed are only worried about what their path looks like and which other top teams will be playing in their region.

The path to the Final Four got easier for some and more difficult for others as the bracket got revealed, though the teams at the top mostly stayed the same.

We take a look at the biggest risers and fallers in futures odds after the bracket reveal, since we now know each team’s path to a national title.

Risers

Kansas +700

Kansas started the day at +1400 to win the national title. After the bracket reveal, the Big 12 Champions are the third-highest favorite to win the entire thing at +700.

The Jayhawks are the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region. They are expected to have a relatively easier path in their region with Auburn as the No. 2 seed and Wisconsin as the No. 3 seed.

Providence is the highest seed on Kansas’ side of the bracket and they have a difficult first round matchup against South Dakota State, as the Friars are just a 2.5-point favorite.

Tennessee +2000

The Volunteers started the day at +3300 to win the championship. That moved to +2500 after winning the SEC Tournament, and it moved all the way to +2000 after the bracket reveal.

Tennessee will play in the South Region with Arizona as the No. 1 seed and Villanova as the No. 2 seed.

Iowa +3300

Iowa is another team that’s been boosted by their play as of late. They began Sunday with +5000 odds to win it all. Then they proceeded to win the Big Ten Tournament and jumped up to +4000.

After the bracket reveal, they now sit at +3300 on PointsBet. They are the No. 5 seed in the Midwest. The No. 4 seed Providence has a difficult matchup with South Dakota State which might be one reason why people like this team to come out of the Midwest, or at least the first weekend.

Texas +5500

The Longhorns were +8000 to win the title before the bracket was released and have jumped up to +5500 after the reveal. They were awarded the No. 6 seed in the East Region and drew a pretty difficult matchup against red-hot Virginia Tech. The Hokies shocked everyone by winning the ACC Championship.

Memphis +6600

Here we go again with Penny Hardaway’s team. They spent most of the season on the bubble and then went on a run in the American Conference Tournament before losing in the championship to Houston.

They were +10000 to win the National Championship before the bracket and are now +6600. They have the No. 9 seed with a difficult matchup against Mountain West Champion Boise State. If they win that, they’ll likely face the No. 1 overall seed Gonzaga.

Fallers

Auburn +1400

Auburn went from +1100 to +1400 after landing in the Midwest Region as the No. 2 seed. They have Wisconsin and Kansas as the other top seeds in their region. Money appears to be coming in on Kansas which has dropped Auburn’s odds.

Ohio State +10000

Ohio State was +8000 to win it all before the bracket was released. After the bracket the Buckeyes find themselves at 100-1. They drew a very difficult first round matchup against mid-major power Loyola-Chicago, which is a short favorite over the Buckeyes.

If they get through that, they have Villanova and Tennessee on their half of the bracket.
