Odds to Win Women’s NCAA Tournament
Odds via DraftKings as of March 31
With just two games to go in the women’s NCAA Tournament, UConn and Stanford have flip-flopped spots on the oddsboard.
The Huskies are the -190 favorite at DraftKings heading into the Final Four ahead of Stanford, now +200 after opening +150 prior to the tournament. UConn was +250 before the tournament started.
Geno Auriemma’s team passed its biggest test of the tournament in dramatic fashion in the Elite Eight with a 69-67 win over Baylor. That followed a win over Caitlin Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Sweet 16.
The Huskies will now meet the biggest underdog left, Arizona. The Wildcats reached the Final Four following wins over No. 2 Texas A&M in the Sweet 16 and No. 4 Indiana in the Elite Eight. Arizona is still +2000 to win it all, which is the same as the Wildcats’ opening number.
Stanford survived a scare in the Elite Eight against Louisville. The Cardinal trailed by 12 at halftime but used a 30-13 fourth-quarter run to pull away and ultimately win by 15.
Stanford now faces a tough test against fellow No. 1 seed South Carolina, which rolled No. 6 Texas 62-34 in the quarterfinal. Stanford is a 5.5-point favorite against South Carolina, compared to UConn being a 13.5-point favorite over Arizona.
The two juggernauts seem headed for the final, which would potentially feature the top two teams in the final regular season ranking. Connecticut was the top ranked team but Stanford was named the overall No. 1 seed in the tournament.
