The NCAA Women’s Tournament tips off Wednesday, March 20, with the First Four.

No. 1-ranked South Carolina (32-0) does not have a blemish on its record this season and sits as a clear favorite to cut down the nets even before the bracket is revealed Sunday.

Read on for our top picks to make before women’s March Madness betting begins.

Women’s NCAA Tournament Best Bets

Iowa (+400)

Hard not to back the all-time leading college basketball scorer at plus-money a year after falling short against LSU.

Caitlin Clark’s Hawkeyes have been all but planted in the top five all year and finished conference tournament play No. 2 in the nation.

As the No. 1 team in WCBB in points per game (87.3) and field-goal percentage (51.5), Iowa should sprint through the early rounds toward a potential clash with South Carolina or LSU.

If the regional draws play out as expected, these Hawkeye odds will shrink; lock them in now with our top betting promos.

LSU (+700)

Since we’re still avoiding South Carolina due to lack of value, let’s stick with the other more softly priced powerhouse.

Continuing its ascent under Hall of Fame coach Kim Mulkey, LSU looks ready to advance deep into the tournament and defend its title.

Angel Reese highlights a deep, talented squad that’s just as strong as their 2022-23 championship group.

Women’s NCAA Tournament Sleeper Bet

Stanford (+2000)

Given the large gap between the top three and the similarly capable Cardinal, this juice is difficult to pass up with at least a sprinkle bet.

Regular-season blocks leader (3.5 per game) and third-leading rebounder (12.0) Cameron Brink anchors a squad that finished top-five in points differential (+17.9).
