This year’s NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament will reach its conclusion in the Lone Star State this year, as the Final Four will take place in Houston, Texas for the fourth time in March Madness history.

The last time the Final Four was held in Houston was 2016. That year, Villanova won its first national championship since 1985 by beating North Carolina on a buzzer-beating three-pointer by Kris Jenkins.

Neither of those programs will be making a return trip this year, as they are on the wrong side of the March Madness bubble. That is also the case for Oklahoma and Syracuse, who were the other two Final Four participants in 2016.

But which four teams could take the court at NRG Stadium on April 1? Let’s take a look at the odds to make this year’s Final Four.
