2013 March Madness odds favor Louisville and Indiana.

As companies across the nation are being flooded with calls from employees taking "sick days," sportsbooks in Vegas are gearing up for what has been predicted to be one of the biggest gambling events of the year. 2013 March madness odds have been listed with betting lines favoring Indiana (#1 East) and Louisville (#1 Midwest) to win the national championship at 5/1 followed by Florida (#3 South) at 7/1, Gonzaga (#1 West) at 10/1 and Duke (#2 Midwest) at 11/1. Kansas might be a #1 seed in the South region but bookmakers have listed the Jayhawks as 11/1 underdogs along with the Miami Hurricanes who have emerged as the #2 seed in the East.

The Indiana Hoosiers will take the floor on Friday at 4:10pm EST (TBS) for their first game of the tournament after finishing the season with a 27-6 record going 14-4 in the Big Ten conference. That being said, Indiana ended the year with a 56-68 loss to then #22 Wisconsin but still managed to claim the conference title by one game over the Ohio State Buckeyes. Head coach Rick Pitino and the Louisville Cardinals will begin their tournament run with a second round match-up against #16 North Carolina A&T on Thursday at 6:50pm EST which can also be seen on TBS. The Cardinals are betting favorites in March Madness odds having ended the season with a profitable 29-5 straight up record going 14-4 in the Big East while paying out gamblers with a 20-13-1 mark against the spread.
