Whether you're filling out a 2021 March Madness bracket or getting in on the action with March Madness betting on FanDuel Sportsbook, there's plenty to learn from the bookmakers that set the betting lines. That includes on the odds for teams to reach the Sweet 16.

Picking early upsets and cashing in early round bets is more fun, and makes for an exciting tournament as March Madness progresses. But for as much value as there is in hitting your upset picks, the odds still suggest that the strongest teams advance to the Sweet Sixteen, Elite Eight and Final Four.

Most bracket pools reward an increasing number of points for wins the deeper in the tournament you go. So keep that in mind as you make your picks, and also Sweet 16 and Final Four bets.

While the No. 1 seeds have the lowest odds to advance to the Final Four and Sweet 16, there are great opportunities at FanDuel Sportsbook to cash in on bigger odds for other teams to reach the Sweet 16.
