Michigan jumped to No. 2 in the polls and has closed the gap on Baylor in the latest NCAA Tournament odds.

The red-hot Wolverines face Illinois and rival Michigan State twice this week to end the regular season. Michigan is now 360 at FanDuel, just behind Baylor (350) and Gonzaga (250), to win the NCAA championship.

DraftKings lists all three teams -- Michigan, Gonzaga and Baylor -- at -10000 to earn a No. 1 seed in the tournament. As of Tuesday morning, Alabama (200) was the favorite for the fourth No. 1 seed in the tournament via DraftKings.

The rest of the field has been distanced from the lead pack by oddsmakers.

DraftKings odds include Baylor and Gonzaga even at 275 to win the tournament and Michigan third at 375 ahead of Villanova (1100), Iowa (1300) and Ohio State (1500).

FanDuel lists Villanova fourth in its updated championship odds at 1300, with Houston at 1800 and the Big Ten triumvirate of Illinois, Ohio State and Iowa all at 1800.

The next grouping is Alabama and Florida State, the likely regular-season champions in the SEC and ACC, respectively, at 2000.
