NCAA Tournament Odds: Friday

    
March 20th, 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).

 

NDSU is a trendy upset pick, but the line suggests those picks are more hopeful than true. However, Cleveland St is considered a dangerous team against an inexperienced and inconsistent Wake Forest team. Note how close the 12-5 games are, perhaps we can expect some more 12-5 magic late tonight.
