Big East Conference Tournament Bracket Set: Plus-Money Across The Board at MSG


March 6, 2022

With the Big East regular season in the books, the field is set for the 2022 Big East Tournament and FanDuel Sportsbook has listed Villanova as the favorite at +165.

The tournament is being held at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY, with first-round action set to begin on Wednesday, March 9. Quarterfinal games are scheduled for March 10, while the semifinal matchups will tip-off on March 11. The tournament will conclude with the conference championship game on Saturday, March 12 at 6:30 p.m. on FOX.

The 11 Big East teams competing in the tournament are as follows: No. 1 Providence, No. 2 Villanova, No. 3 Connecticut, No. 4 Creighton, No. 5 Marquette, No. 6 Seton Hall, No. 7. St. John’s, No. 8 Xavier, No. 9 Butler, No. 10 DePaul, and No. 11 Georgetown.

Villanova: +165
Connecticut: +350
Providence: +500
Marquette: +700
Creighton: +1000
Seton Hall: +1600
St. Johns: +2700
Xavier: +3000
Butler: +3500
DePaul: +6500
Georgetown: +41000


Villanova currently sits at the shortest odds despite being the No. 2 seed while regular-season champion Providence has the third-shortest odds behind both the Wildcats and UConn Huskies. Nova completed a season sweep of the Friars and are favored by most metrics. Marquette (+700) and Creighton (+1000) trail not too far behind as respectable dark horses.

The winner at Madison Square Garden will qualify for the NCAA Tournament via an automatic bid, aka March Madness. An automatic bid is awarded to the team that wins their respective conference, thus clinching an NCAA tournament berth, which begins on March 15-16 with the First Four.

The field of 68 is announced a week from today on Selection Sunday, March 13, at 6:00 p.m. ET on CBS with the Final Four April 2 and the Championship Game on Monday, April. 4.
