NCAA Tournament Odds: Saturday

    
March 21st, 2009

Betting odds are a great guide to NCAA Tournament action. Unlike fans, who often ride the wave of media predictions, betting lines tend to be a bit more focused (though they too can get caught up in the wave).

 

The bettors are not sold on Oklahoma or Duke advancing as 2 seeds, and are down on Villanova after their struggles with American in the opening round. Interesting that Gonzaga is nearly the biggest favorite despite their struggles with mediocre Akron, and the way WKU took it to Illinois.
