Since the 2010 season is over, it’s only natural to turn our eye to the teams Vegas think will win the 2011 championship. If you’re into sports betting you will definitely want to check to see the favorites:
Michigan State +900
Ohio State +1500
North Carolina +2000
Taking a quick peek, I would stay far away from Ohio State and Kentucky. Michigan State seems like the best bet to me, but if you really want to get nuts, Baylor at +4000 looks nice, as does Wisconsin +4000
In any event next year should be an odd year in college bball, and betting on a title team now won’t be advantageous. I think I’ll stick to football betting
Ladies and gentlemen, the day has come. We have moved.
Check out our new site, now part of the Bloguin network, here.
Have you always wanted to watch the end of the 2008 National Championship game? Or that epic Arizona-Illinois Elite 8 in 2005? Or hear Gus Johnson scream in the UCLA-Gonzaga game?
Well now you can. Thanks to this site, you can watch any Sweet 16 game or later from 2000 on.
Since there’s really nothing going on today, I thought I would direct you to Ridiculous Upside, SB Nation’s blog about the NBA D League, where I interviewed former Kansas Jayhawk and current D-Leaguer Russ Robinson.

At the beginning of the season, it was thought to be one of the biggest CBB nights of the season. But scuffles by UConn, and a disaster of a season by North Carolina, have put a small damper on tonight.
Syracuse, the #3 team in the Pomeroy Ratings, looks to have an easy time with UConn at the surface, but if UConn can knock down some threes (which they haven’t done well) and get some offensive rebounds (which they have done well) they have a chance to beat the Orange, since Syracuse is abysmal at forcing turnovers. So is UConn, and Syracuse doesn’t turn it over too much, so there shouldn’t be a ton of empty possessions tonight. I’m takin the Cuse by 15 at home.
The night cap is Duke vs. some other team. Duke has shot the three well this year and not turned it over, staples for Duke teams, but they also have hit the offensive glass really well this year, 10th in the country. Carolina meanwhile has really struggled at the guard position. Larry Drew II or III or IV or V or whatever it is has played terribly this year. He does get quite a few assists, but turns it over like crazy. Meanwhile Carolina doesn’t turn their opponent over very often. I expect Jon Scheyer to have a great game, vaulting him back into the National POY race. Duke by 1o on the road.
