A Rundown Of Tournament Props

Like the title says, a rundown of various tournament props. Most of these can be found at Bovada. Which #1 seed will lose first? Wichita being chalk here is no surprise. I find it interesting as addendum to just how leveraged some books are against a possible Shocker title. If they have to pay out a bunch of 100/1 and 50/1 shots as a result, maybe they can make up for some of losses by a wave of anti-Wichita here. Wichita St, -110 Arizona, +200 Virginia, +300 Louisville, +600 Number Of #1 Seeds In The Final Four 0, +450 1, -110 2, +150 3, +1400 4, +4000 Will a #16 advance out of the Round of #32? This is the easiest way to make $100 over the next 48 hours. As long as you have $1,500 to spare. We would so Eddie Much a top seed if we pulled the trigger here. It might almost be worth it. Yes, +700; No, -1500 Will A 16-15-14 seed win a Round of 32 Games? Yes, -135; No, +110 Another chance to bet on the concept of Cinderella. We bet ‘No’ on this twice before. Once in 2009, which we escaped with a clean win–although 2014 participant American

Big Ten Tournament: Quarterfinal Round, The Night Session

Quick one-hitters on today’s earlier Big Ten action…… *** Had that Michigan game been an actual NCAA Tournament game, I’d still be in a fear induced coma. Since it wasn’t, I have enjoyed the last several hours of consciousness. And have been trying to figure out how a team with in-the-gym shooting range like Michigan could struggle so poorly against a zone defense. The best news for Michigan is they dodged the ‘teams who lose their first conference tournament have never the national championship’ bullet. *** Knee jerk reaction to watching some of their most recent peformances: Illinois has something with freshmen Kendrick Nunn and Malcolm Hill. An NIT run could be a huge benefit to accelerate their growth. Nunn has All Big -1o potential as soon as next season if the evolution continues. Everyone on this team is basically back and they sprinkle in some talented transfers. This team enters next season as a contender for an at-large bid. *** At least Nebraska covered the spread. We’ll always have that. And it really does mean a lot to me. But did this game sure ever escape the Cornhuskers. They fell apart down the stretch, an alarming thing to watch after they had played with
