What is the best March Madness bet for Sweet 16?

Plenty of chaos has already occurred during March Madness. Certainly more is in store for us this weekend.

Starting Thursday and extending to Friday, the Sweet 16 gets underway, setting up a Saturday-Sunday schedule of Elite Eight action.

Thursday-Saturday: Sweet 16 West Region, South Region

The overall No. 1 seed Gonzaga Bulldogs highlight the first day of the Sweet 16. Expectations remain high for Gonzaga, which has advanced to the national final twice in the past four tournaments only to come one victory shy of the title.

Interestingly, No. 2 Villanova meet the No. 11 Michigan in San Antonio four years after Villanova defeated Big Blue — also in San Antonio — for the national championship.

West Region: Chase Center, San Francisco
No. 4 Arkansas vs. No. 1 Gonzaga (), 7:09 p.m. ET, CBS
No. 3 Texas Tech ()vs. No. 2 Duke, 9:39 p.m., CBS

South Region: AT&T Center, San Antonio
No. 11 Michigan vs. No. 2 Villanova(), 7:29 p.m. ET, TBS
No. 5 Houston vs. No. 1 Arizona (), 9:59 p.m. ET, TBS

Friday-Sunday: Sweet 16 East Regon, Midwest Region

The head-to-head double-digit seeds certainly intrigues in Chicago. Seeing No. 4 Providence in the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1997 is also a heck of a story. Blue bloods in No. 8 North Carolina and No. 4 UCLA surely shouldn’t disappoint.

But the real story surrounds Friday’s first game, in Philadelphia, as No. 15 Saint Peter’s looks to become the highest-seeded team to reach the Elite Eight. Standing in the Peacocks’ way is No. 3 Purdue. Since the NCAA Tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985, three No. 15 seeds have reached the Sweet 16, including Oral Roberts last year. Not one of those three, however, made it any further.

This game certainly screams for attention when it comes to the $200 in free bets DraftKings NY bonus. Bettors certainly won’t make much profit betting $5 on the Purdue moneyline, which stood at -950 on Wednesday. But, that wager could result in $200 in free bets. Consider that a user would need to wager $1,900 just to see an extra $200 return at those odds.

East Region: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia
No. 15 Saint Peter’s vs. No. 3 Purdue (), 7:09 p.m., CBS
No. 8 North Carolina vs. No. 4 UCLA (), 9:39 p.m. ET, CBS

Midwest Region: United Center, Chicago
No. 4 Providence vs. No. 1 Kansas (), 7:29 p.m. ET, TBS
No. 11 Iowa State vs. No. 10 Miami (), 9:59 p.m. ET, TBS
