Odd-On Favorite In 2019 NCAA Tournament East Region

Duke (-175) is the No. 1 seed in the entire NCAA Tournament, let alone the East Region. Their odds on the FanDuel Sportsbook app along with any other NJ sportsbooks provide no value, although a healthy Zion Williamson playing for the Blue Devils is sure to convince NJ online sports betting players that the juice is worth it. They could face ACC rival Virginia Tech (+1600) in the Sweet 16 as well as Big Ten champ Michigan State (+400) in the Elite Eight.

East Region: Potential Sleeper NCAAB Pick

LSU (+1200): From a value standpoint, LSU provides a ton of it. They’re the SEC regular season champions and an extremely versatile team with different ways to beat you. Unfortunately, they’re missing head coach Will Wade and that plays a huge role come NCAA Tournament time. Those +1200 odds on the FanDuel Sportsbook app, however, will be tough to ignore for some NJ online sports betting players looking for a longshot.

NCAA Tournament Sports Betting Pick For East Region

Michigan State (+400): Duke is the best team in this region, but we are ignoring that for the sake of our NCAAB pick. The odds on Duke winning the entire NCAA Tournament (+220 on most the FanDuel Sportsbook app) are worth taking because they’re plus-money. But Duke at -175 is nothing but risk for NJ online sports betting players. Michigan State is riding high off a defeat of rival Michigan in the Big Ten title game and gets to avoid Duke until a potential Elite Eight clash. The best mix of value and talent makes Michigan State our East Region March Madness betting pick.
