The Syracuse Orange came into the 2016 NCAA Tournament as a relative longshot to get this far, let alone win the whole damn thing. The Dayton Flyers opened as a slight favorite over SU in the first round (oops) and the Orange were looking at 150-1 odds at winning the National Title.
Now that the dust has settled and the Orange find themselves in the Sweet Sixteen, those odds have improved, even if they're still one of the longshots.
Odds to win the 2016 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship
North Carolina 17/4
Texas A&M 20/1
Iowa State 28/1
Miami (Florida) 28/1
Notre Dame 33/1
When it comes to just getting out of the Midwest Regional, the Orange are getting 7-1 odds, which doesn't sound all that bad until you realize everyone else has better ones (even Gonzaga).
Odds to win the Midwest Region
Iowa State 9/2
How's that sound? Does it even matter at this point?
