When they reached the Sweet Sixteen, those odds came down to 33-1. Again, you're kicking yourself right now.
Well here's your last chance to invest (for the purposes of fun only) in a potential Syracuse National Title. The Final Four odds are out and the Orange remain the longshot with 8-1 odds. Their opponent, the North Carolina Tar Heels, are the prohibitive favorites.
North Carolina (1/1)
If you want to get creative, there's a few other bets out there as well.

Meanwhile, there's one person out of all of us who is probably rooting for Syracuse just a tiny bit harder than the rest. We want the Orange to win for championship gold, bragging rights, and the pure joy of victory. Meanwhile, whoever laid down a bet on SU to win the title back on January 13 at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas has a slightly bigger incentive.
On Jan. 13, the Westgate SuperBook had Syracuse listed at 1,000-1 to win the NCAA tournament. Even though the Orange were struggling at that point, some folks had faith. The Westgate booked four bets, totaling $135, at that price, including a $100 ticket that would pay $100,100.
SU was 1000-1 that week only and quickly came down to 500-1. Not quick enough for the Westgate. Good luck, sir or madam, and good luck Syracuse.
