Last year, reigning WAC Tournament champion Grand Canyon was able to break up a streak of championships by New Mexico State. The Aggies had won seven of eight conference titles. This year, NMSU is back atop odds boards looking to get back on track. Below, we’ll lay out WAC conference tournament odds, TV schedule, how you can watch, and more.

Can Anyone Catch New Mexico State?

Here is the WAC men’s bracket.

Despite being the favorite in the WAC, New Mexico State (24-6, 13-4) sits half a game outside of first place. Seattle (22-8, 14-4) and Stephen F. Austin (22-8, 14-4) were co-regular season champions with Seattle. The Aggies were still granted the first seed in the tournament with the unbalanced schedule, however, based on their overall record. If you’re looking to bet NMSU at plus money, DraftKings Sportsbook gives you the best price at +150.

“Stone Cold” Stephen F. Austin (+650) may be of some intrigue if bettors are looking for a longer-shot team. The Lumberjacks have won 10 in a row, including a late-season victory at New Mexico State. However, as the third seed, they do have a tougher route to the tournament final.

Grand Canyon (22-7, 13-5) is the most highly-hated WAC team in KenPom rating (92), but was a much better home team this year than on the road. GCU notched a spot in the 2021 NCAA Tournament as a 15 seed and were sent home in the first round by Iowa. They’ve been conference runners up in two straight tournaments before claiming their first-ever title in 2021. Their best price is at DraftKings Sportsbook (+330).
