It’s almost time for the greatest round robin tournament on earth, as March Madness gets underway this week.

March Madness is finally here, with plenty of top-level clashes to look forward to in the coming days.

Before the First Four round starts, our Basketball expert has taken a look at the Region Winner betting markets – selecting one option from each of the four sides of the bracket.

Here are the Region Winner selections for the mens’ 2024 edition of March Madness.

East Region

While the overall competition favourites Connecticut sit in this region, there could be some value in backing second seed Iowa State.

The Cyclones has been superb defensively this season, giving up 61 points per game and averaging 10.4 steals per game. Their offense isn’t the best in the region, but they do enough the job done.

UConn is obviously not an opponent they want to face if they get to the Elite Eight, but they may just have enough in the tank to leapfrog the incumbent National Champions into the Final Four.

TIP: Iowa State to win the East Region (+450, FanDuel)

West Region

Another school that has proven to be strong in defense, North Carolina could be a solid bet to reach the Final Four for the fourth time in eight years.

The Tar Heels have RJ Davis and Armando Bacot on their side, who were both pivotal in the school’s run to the 2022 National Championship game. Their experience could prove to be pivotal here.

They will likely clash horns with Caleb Love and the Arizona Wildcats for a place in the Final Four, but they should be able to get the better of them and book their ticket to Phoenix.

TIP: North Carolina to win the West Region (+380, FanDuel)

South Region

While many will be siding with Houston to make the Final Four here, they do have the odd slip in them as proven in the regular season.

That could give Duke a chance to winning the South Region, and at a nice price too.

The Blue Devils are coming into the tournament in on a two-game losing streak. But they put up a respectable 24-8 record throughout the regular season, and they hold one of the most efficient offenses in the school program.

They would need to beat Houston in the Sweet 16 if they got there – but they have a chance of doing exactly that, and then it would be a clean run to the Final Four from there.

TIP: Duke to win the South Region (+650, FanDuel)

Midwest Region

Purdue have experienced their fair share of heartbreak in March Madness in recent years, but their time could come here.

The Big Ten school were red hot in the regular season after putting up a 29-4 record, and they’ve been handed a favourable path to the Final Four after claiming the number one seed in the Midwest Region.

Their past record in March Madness under Matt Painter is a slight worry, but their offense should be able to put some teams into submission early on and they should be claiming their ticket to Phoenix at the end of March realistically.

TIP: Purdue to win the Midwest Region (+170, FanDuel)
