The NCAA women’s basketball has brought plenty of March Madness so far as they enter Sweet Sixteen weekend.

South Carolina is still the clear favorite to win the national championship this season, as it has spent much of the season ranked No. 1 in the Associated Press Poll, and recently moved from +200 to +100 to win it all on PointsBet.

The story of the tournament so far has been a couple of upsets. Creighton, a No. 10 seed,  knocked off No. 2 seed Iowa in Iowa City.

No. 5 seeded Oregon took a first round loss to No. 12 seed Belmont and No. 2 seed Baylor was shocked by No. 10 seed South Dakota in the second round.

There are some intriguing teams still in the field. Star sophomore UConn guard Paige Bueckers recently returned from an injury that had sidelined her for much of the season. The Huskies have moved up to the second-highest odds at +300.

Stanford is a traditional power and ranked No. 2 in the country. The Cardinal has the second-highest odds (+450) to win it all.

Check out below more about the remaining 16 teams on the odds board.

1. South Carolina (+100)

The far-and-away best team in the country is led by All-American Aaliyah Boston. She’s averaging 16.8 points and 11.9 rebounds per game. The Gamecocks were the heavy favorite to win the SEC before being shocked by a game-winning buzzer-beater vs. Kentucky in the SEC Championship game. It shows that this team can be vulnerable.

2. UConn (+300)

As mentioned earlier, UConn got a massive boost with the return of Bueckers. She was one of the best players in college basketball last season. UConn cruised through the Big East Tournament and look primed for a big run in March. They’ll match up with Big Ten runner-up Indiana in the Sweet Sixteen.

3. Stanford (+450)

The Cardinal lost three games early in the season in non-conference play, all against ranked teams, including South Carolina. Stanford is the hottest team in the country and playing its best basketball of the season. They have not lost a game since that Dec. 21 matchup vs. South Carolina.

4. NC State (+550)

The Wolfpack are 27-3 and find themselves atop the ACC with a 17-1 conference record. NC State earned the No. 1 seed in the Bridgeport Region but got a difficult draw with UConn as the No. 2 seed in the same region.

5. Louisville (+1000)

Louisville was expected to make a run at NC State in the ACC Conference Tournament before an early upset to the No. 7 seed Miami. The Cardinals’ 25-4 was still good enough to earn the No. 1 seed in the Wichita Region.

6. Texas (+2000)

Texas is the best team remaining from the Big 12 after Baylor’s shocking exit in the second round. They played Baylor close all season, including a win over them in the Big 12 Championship.

7. North Carolina (+5000)

The Tar Heels got off to a hot start and then stumbled a little bit in conference play. They went 23-6 overall and 13-5 in the ACC. The Heels will have the nightmare in the Sweet Sixteen, South Carolina.

8. Iowa State (+5000)

All of the Cyclones’ Big 12 losses came against either Baylor or Texas including an overtime loss to Texas in the Big 12 Conference Tournament. Iowa State earned the No. 3 seed in the Greensboro Region.

9. Maryland (+6000)

Maryland took some setbacks throughout the season, as it currently has a 21-8 record. However, seven of those eight losses were against ranked schools, including South Carolina, Baylor, Michigan and Stanford.

10. Michigan (+6000)

Michigan hasn’t received much hype out of the Big Ten. But they’ve crushed competition so far in the tournament, winning by a combined 50 points in the first two games. They face South Dakota in the Sweet 16.

11. Indiana (+10000)

Indiana is 22-8 on the season and seven of its eight losses have come against ranked teams. The Hoosiers lost by three to Stanford and by eight to NC State. They made a run to the Big Ten Championship Game before losing 74-67 to Iowa.

12. Tennessee (+20000)

Tennessee is almost always in the mix when it comes to women’s basketball, although the program hasn’t been able to reach the heights it was at under head coach Pat Summit. The Lady Vols are 22-7 overall and 11-5 in the SEC.

13. Notre Dame (+20000)

Notre Dame is a historical women’s basketball power but they’ve suffered quite a few ups and downs throughout this season. They might just be playing their best basketball at the right time after scoring 100+ points in a win over Oklahoma in the second round.

14. Ohio State (+30000)

Ohio State entered the Big Ten Tournament as the No. 1 seed but they have taken a back seed in odds to Indiana, Iowa and Michigan. They’ve shown why they are a top-tier program so far in the tournament.

15. Creighton (+30000)

Creighton entered the NCAA Tournament as a No. 10 seed and proceeded to pull off two upsets over Colorado and Iowa. The Iowa upset was even more impressive as it took place in front of a sold out crowd in Iowa City.

16. South Dakota (+30000)

South Dakota is the other Cinderella of the tournament so far. They pulled off an upset over Baylor in the second round.
