Conference basketball tournaments are up and running this week, signaling the early stages of March Madness.

The Southern Conference opens play on Friday, March 4, and the championship is the following Monday. The conference — which features three teams with 20 or more wins — includes three clubs priced 5-1 or shorter to win the tournament.

Odds to Win Southern Conference Tournament

Western Carolina+10000
The Citadel+10000

via DraftKings as of March 2

Although Chattanooga paces the SoCon with a 24-7 record, Furman (20-11) is the team to beat at +150.

Chattanooga beat Furman in both regular-season meetings by a combined eight points.

The Chattanooga Mocs (+200) may have opened the favorite in this market, had they taken care of business when it called. They've been brutal when laying points, recently losing to both VMI (-8.5) and UNC-Greensboro (-9.5) in the last month as sizable chalk.

Oddly, the best team against the spread is also the club with the longest odds to win the tournament. Western Carolina — knotted up with The Citadel at 100-1 — went a Southern-best 17-12-1 against the spread during the regular season.
