Conference Tournament Odds

 We’re arriving at the meat of Championship Week. All the power conference leagues tip off their sectional as well as plenty more mid-major leagues. Here’s a quick rundown of the future odds for the remaining league tournaments. And, we have a five pack of picks afterwards. We might even add another future or two as we go along. We played four futures on some of the mid-major tournaments over the weekend. Three of our teams made it to the finals, but only two won. But we still have a profit to play with. Manhattan, +500 and Wofford, -120 cashed while William/Mary +250 and Monmouth +800 did not. Because of that Jaspar win, however, we’re four units to the good. Since a gambler’s money knows no home, let’s reinvest it…… MID AMERICAN CONFERNECE TOURNAMENT ODDS BUFFALO, +135 CENTRAL MICHIGAN, +250 TOLEDO, +500 KENT, +1200 BGSU, +1600 AKRON, +1600 WESTERN MICHIGAN, +2500 EASTERN MICHIGAN, +2600 AMERICAN ATHLETIC CONFERNECE SMU, +160 CINCY, +390 UNCOON, +400 TEMPLE, +675 TULSA, +800 MEMPHIS, +1200 TULANE, +16000 HOUSTON, +25000 ECU, +35000 UCF,  +100000 USF, +15000 CONFERENCE USA LA TECH, +165 OLD DOMINION, +250 UTEP, +365 UAB, +700 WKU, +1700 MTSU, +2300 UTSA, +400 CHARLOTTE, +800 NORTH TEXAS, +11000 RICE, +11500 FIU, +19000
