I got Nova at 22-1 to win that national championship the other day. I find that VERY attractive. Sexy even. That is likely money I've pissed away, but I still think I got a great deal on it.
I'd take the book side of St. John's at 10-1, though.
I just have a hard time seeing anyone other than Creighton or Villanova cutting down the nets this weekend. Those two are so clearly superior to the rest of the pack, and for anyone else to win the Tournament they'd likely have to beat both of them. I know the Johnnies beat Creighton at MSG earlier in the year, but I don't think it will be much of a home court advantage for them this time around. I expect MSG to basically be Omaha East this weekend.
Apparently you got a deal at 10-1. Here are the odds I see:
St. John's- 6-1
Once again, I like Villanova a lot.
I'd love to have St. John's at 10-1 now!
Villanova losing worries me.
X needs seeds to play out in all the conference tournaments. Bad teams winning and eating up at-large bids isn't a good thing.
23 Years and Counting...
Not loving my Villanova 22-1 to win it all as much right now either.
It was down to 18-1 last time I looked, but it will probably be back to 25-1 tonight.
You got me. St Johns with a chance to get New Yorkers excited about college hoops for the first time in a long time and they lay an egg. Big time. In the Garden. Should cost them a bid. Congrats to Coach Cooley. Tomorrow night, Providence v Seton Hall should really pack them in.
Well there were three teams in the tourney that Marquette could not beat, and two of them are gone. Will make tonights big game that much bigger.
I assume Seton Hall will have a nice crowd. And so long as Creighton is around, they will have a nice crowd, too. A Xavier/Providence final? I would love it, but it would be a nightmare for the Big East from an attendance standpoint. I assume Marquette/Providence would only be marginally better.
