With only three teams with a winning record in the Patriot League, it should be little surprise the betting market sees the conference tournament as a three-team race.

According to opening betting odds released by BetMGM, only three teams have single-digit odds to win the tournament and earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

The tournament begins on Tuesday, March 1 with Lafayette squaring off with Bucknell and Holy Cross meeting American. The winners will advance to the second round against No. 1 seed Colgate and No. 2 Navy, respectively.

The second round takes place on March 3 with the semifinals on March 6 and championship game on March 9, aired on CBS Sports Network.

Here are the odds for each team in the tournament, starting with the favorite.

Colgate Raiders -190

Colgate is the odds-on favorite after winning the conference by four games. Colgate finished the season 20-11 overall with a 16-2 conference record, only losing to Lehigh and Boston. The Raiders are riding a 12-game winning streak.

Navy +400

The Midshipmen finished second in the league with a 12-6 conference record and 19-10 overall. John Carter Jr. leads the team with 12.9 points per game. Navy is 7-3 in its last 10 games.

Boston +700

The Terriers are the only other 20-win team in the conference, finishing the regular season with a 20-11 record and 11-7 in conference. Boston won five of six games prior to a season-finale slip against Bucknell. Javante McCoy will be expected to carry the team after averaging 17 points per game in the regular season.

Lehigh +2500

The Mountain Hawks struggled in non-conference play, losing 10 of their first 11 games. Conference play was better with a 10-8 record, including a win over Colgate.

Loyola Maryland +3000

Cam Spencer leads the Greyhounds with 18.6 points per game, but the team enters the tournament with eight losses in its last 10 games.

Army +4000

The Black Knights lost six games in a row before ending the regular season with back-to-back victories over Bucknell and Holy Cross.

Lafayette +8000

The Leopards own a win over Rutgers in non-conference play and lost to Colgate by just eight on the road. However, Lafayette ranks 308th in the country with 67 points per game.

American, Bucknell & Holy Cross +25000

None of the three teams reached 10 wins on the year with American and Bucknell each finishing conference play with a 5-13 record. Holy Cross does have a win against Navy.
