Iowa has the best odds of any Big Ten team to win the tournament at 10-1.
Here's a look at the top-10.
· Gonzaga: +800
· Baylor: +800
· Virginia: +900
· Villanova: +900
· Iowa: +1000
· Kentucky: +1100
· Kansas: +1100

The NCAA announced the deadline for student-athletes to maintain their college eligibility and withdraw from the NBA Draft would be August 3 or ten days following the combine, whichever comes first.
