    So we go from +850 when there were 64 teams, to +1000 when it’s down to 16? Seems legit.

    My thoughts as well, Biglaw.

    So, if the seeds hold form, we would have to play everyone with lower odds. Tough task

      which is still higher than UK so both would be above us. Two teams cant count for one spot. 🙂

    Whatever. Wonder what ‘Nova’s “odds” were last year. None of it matters.

    It’s based on the first two games where we didn’t blow out either opponent, IMO. Funny how UNC’s near upset was forgiven as an aberration.

    I always think of past champs and near losses they have in earlier rounds. It can be a very good thing that things didn’t come so easy. I hope UCLA is overconfident.

    UK beat Arkasas by 26 at Rupp and 17 on a “neutral” court (realize it was a quasi-home game). UNC gets 3 consecutive gift calls at the most critical time of the game which handed them the win and yet they’re somehow a longer shot to win it all than UNC?
