Despite losing to Memphis in the AAC title game – and losing the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament to Alabama in the process – the Houston Cougars have the shortest national championship odds, which has been the case since early in the preseason.
SEC-champion Alabama, Big Ten-champion Purdue, Big 12 runner-up Kansas, and Pac-12-champion UCLA round out the top-five March Madness favorites.

North Carolina Misses Out
Last year’s runner-up, and one of the preseason national championship favorites, the UNC Tar Heels will miss out on the 2023 NCAA Tournament entirely. North Carolina went 20-13 overall and were one of the last four teams out of the field of 68.
The other teams that narrowly missed out were Clemson, Rutgers, and Oklahoma State.
The last four teams in the tournament as at-large bids were Arizona State, Mississippi State, Nevada, and Pittsburgh.

The 2023 NCAA Tournament will start with the First Four on Tuesday, March 14, and Wednesday, March 15.
The First Four games feature the last four teams to receive at-large bids and the four lowest-seeded teams to get automatic bids.
This year, the First Four games between at-large teams will feature No. 11 seeds Arizona State vs. Nevada, and Mississippi State vs. Pittsburgh.
The First Four games between conference champions are Fairleigh Dickinson vs Texas Southern, and Texas A&M-CC vs Southeast Missouri State, which are all No. 16 seeds.
