    Yeah, our football team isn’t very good, Georgia’s is mediocre and can’t hang with the big dogs of the SEC, congrats…

    Better than a bye week. Good point there UGA. That’s the same thing South Carolina said about UGA 2 weeks ago.

    3) Has it right, a lot of money to be made there.

    If you would like to bet on UCLA at 15/1 DO NOT contact a sports book. Message me and I’ll glady accept your money, I mean wagers.

    Also, Arizona and NC State are the best values. Yes I know Gotfried is an awful coach, but he has the best team in the ACC this year.

    Why aren’t we playing IU again? It doesn’t matter whose side you’re on, both UK and IU really screwed the pooch by not making it happen. What a great game that would be…

    So you’re saying there’s a chance?

    Dang, the more I think about it, 1,000 bucks that one of the top (preseason) six won’t win…and I’d have 15k. UK and UL are both ranked too high. And if Indiana is the best team here…sheesh. I may really put some dough down on this.

    3) betting the field is the worst option on the board…the field means everyone that isn’t listed…so basically your betting the mac or A10 conference winner to cut down the nets

    12) According to Vegas, it’s a little better option than betting Ohio State, Duke, or North Carolina.

    Wait until UK goes through the typical growing pains of becoming a team. They will fall to about 15 to 1 and that’s when you pick them up. Seems a bit too bold to take them at 7 to 1 when none of these guys started for us last year.

    12.) If that was the worst option then why are the odds 15-1?

    Anyway, it was a joke, you know, the funny kind.

    Best bet in there is NC State at 22-1
    Second Best is Notre Dame at 75-1 (returning all 5 starters)

    Look how far the 3 local schools are above everybody else! It’s almost a 50% shot that one of the 3 locals will win it all!

    I think the best bet in the group is Florida at 30-1. They are going to be right there again come Sweet 16/Elite 8 time. I’m not saying they’ll win it, but them getting 30-1 odds is pretty darn valuable.

    Worst value is Vanderbilt at 80-1. No way they even come close to sniffing the tournament this year.

    Betting the field is always the worst option….it’s every team not listed, you actually believe a team not listed will win it all? Okay…I hope u have faith in southwest tech state poly to bring it home. The odds are 15-1 because they know morons like some of you will blindly throw money at it thinking u made a good bet.
