Odds! The NCAA Tournament through the eyes of Vegas

New, comments

Why just throw away money by filling out 10 brackets...throw some at Vegas, too!

Let's be honest, the NCAA Tournament is largely about filling out brackets, wasting your money on picks that never come true, and tearing apart pieces of paper after the Thursday morning session.  Not only can you fill out brackets but there is also that little temptress out west known at Las Vegas that beckons with betting lines on everything tournament related.  The below odds are from the folks at Bovada.

The Zags have the 7th best odds of winning the whole tournament at 16/1.  The are 5/2 to win the South region, just behind No. 1 seed Duke at 11/5:
