As a recap, here is how seeding unfolded. 

Villanova (East), Gonzaga (West), Kansas (Midwest) and North Carolina (South) earned No. 1 seeds as the top four teams in the tournament. 

Duke, the No. 2 seed in the east region, has the best odds to win the national championship, according to ESPN. The Blue Devils were given 5-to-1 odds to win the tournament. They were followed by their rival, North Carolina, who was given 6-to-1 odds. Three teams (Kentucky, Villanova and Kansas) were given 8-to-1 odds and Gonzaga was given 10-to-1 odds.  

Kent State, New Mexico State, South Dakota State and Iona are the long shots in the tournament. Each team was given 5000-1 odds to win the NCAA tournament. To put that in perspective, Leicester City was given 5,000-to-1 odds to win the Barclays Premier League in 2016, which they did, becoming the biggest longshot to ever win England's top soccer championship.
