With the NCAA men’s basketball tournament set to get underway this week, a new DraftKings Gonzaga March Madness odds boost is a must bet, in our humble opinion.

All users can find it under the promos tab of the DK app. It’s truly a no-brainer: No. 1 overall seed Gonzaga +100 (max bet $50) in its first-round game against 16-seed Georgia State, a price normally reserved for coin-flip sides. CLAIM NOW

How Big Is The DraftKings Gonzaga March Madness Boost?

You can start with the fact that exactly one 1-seed has lost in the history of the first round of the NCAA Tournament (2018 Virginia) to know that a 1-seed being offered at a 50% implied chance of victory is substantial value, but even beyond that, we can see what other sites without the boosts are offering.

The market price is sitting around -8000 right now at non-DraftKings sites, meaning that the oddsmakers think there’s about a 98.77% chance they win this game. Put another way, they think Georgia State’s chance of becoming the next UMBC is a shade over 1%. GET YOUR GONZAGA ODDS BOOST

Gonzaga is coming off a 26-3 season, they’re returning a solid core of the team that made it to last year’s National Title Game before losing to Baylor, and they’re still coached by Mark Few, widely believed to be one of the better coaches in the sport.

On the other side, Georgia State got in the tournament through a run through the Sun Belt tournament, and boast no victories on their resume that suggests a potential upset as a 23-point underdog – as the non-boosted implied odds suggest.

Obviously, it’s March Madness and anything can happen, but DraftKings is offering a 98.77% favorite at coinflip prices, and it’s the kind of offer that is actually as good as it seems. For anyone trying to make the most of this week’s March Madness value, this is a no-brainer.
