Bovada released its ‘odds to win’ on Monday, and the four Texas representatives are seen as long shots at best to come out on top.

Baylor and Texas, both given 100:1 odds, lead the way.

Texas (No. 7 Midwest) meets Arizona State on Thursday in Milwaukee.

Stephen F. Austin (No. 12, South), who is currently riding a 28-game winning streak after capturing the Southland Conference title, is seen as a 500:1 underdog. They begin play on Friday against Virginia Commonwealth.

Texas Southern (No. 16, Midwest), winner of the Southwestern Athletic Conference’s automatic bid, received the longest odds to win the tournament at 1,000:1. Texas Southern plays a first round match against Cal Poly on Wednesday. The winner will play top-seeded Wichita State on Friday.
