I'm looking for the top 4 teams that you think can win the NCAAB March Madness Tournament. The reason I'm looking for this is because I'm thinking of betting on 4 teams to win the tournament. For example 1 team I like right now is Florida and they are +1000 or 10 to 1 to win it. If I can narrow down 3 more that are about the same odds, it is worth a play. I'm looking at it now and will come up with 3 more soon.

Roll out your top 4

Arizona
Kansas
Ohio State
Gonzaga at monster odds!

I would play against, Indiana, Duke, Michigan and sorry to say Florida. SEC is really weak this year. I wouldn't touch a single team in that league. I would say the same for the Big12 but Kansas is a perennial deep run team and I think after the taste they had last year, they will be a way tougher out than Florida will be.

A must play is Gonzaga, I really like this team, they are the real deal.

Kansas and Ohio State we both agree upon so that should be 2 of your 4. I don't think Duke, Louisville, Florida or Butler will be around in the Final 4. I could be way off but this year it's wide open. I love the Zags at nearly 50-1 odds.

Right now Kansas is 14 to 1, Gonzaga is 8 to 1, Indiana 3.5 to 1, Duke 7 to 1, Florida 6.5 to 1 to win it all.

I was thinking after last nights win on the road in OT by Kansas that they are the play to win it all. I might just use the last of my free play on them 14 to win 196. I know you like Gonzaga Freak, but what are your thoughts right now. I no longer like Butler or Ohio St and can't play the favorite Indiana and I hate Puke so I don't want to play them.

You missed out on the high odds on the Zags. My thoughts haven't changed on them.

Butler has lost games to inferior teams, Florida lost tonight against Tennessee, Indiana lost tonight as well.

I am sticking pat with the four I gave. I just know these teams are well coached and have the tools to get there. The only bad thing is the odds on the Zags now. However if you didn't fire when it was 50-1 and they have kicked ass since and got the main stream media involved, that was the risk.

I ended up with two #1 seeds, a #2 seed and a #5 seed.

I am still against the other teams mentioned including Louisville. All of these teams have shown a weakness and while it may not come in the first two rounds of the 64, it will play a bigger part later.

I did one bracket this year and one only.

My final 4 came out to being the following:

Kansas defeating Florida
Indiana defeating Miami FL
Creighton defeating St Louis
Ohio State defeating Gonzaga

Love the Creighton pick Freak!! As you know, that's my team!! I really feel the Jays can upset Duke and make their first sweet sixteen ever! If VCU, George Mason, and Butler can do it, why not Creighton? If Wragge can continue to hit the 3's, Duke is done! Just got back from Vegas and people were all on the Jays. It was a great feeling walking down the strip with my Creighton shirt on and people yelling Go Creighton beat Duke!! Sunday night prime time game (9:40 est) and I can't wait!! Go Jays!!

I like Creighton's chance all the more with the Wichita State win tonight over Gonzaga. I've seen a lot of Gonzaga games this year and can't recall the last time they gave up an 8 point lead in the second half. Mind you they came back from 13 down so it was a 21 point swing. State was just in another dimension with the 3 ball tonight and they never gave up.

Based on my picks, I didn't think the Zags would beat Ohio State to get the final 4 even though they were one of my championship team selections before the brackets. Since Ohio State and Zags were in the same region, I figured Ohio State would get the better of them.

I think the key player for Sunday is going to be Gibbs, he is going to need to have a big game because Duke is going to be all over McDermott. If Gibbs goes off then they win. If not, they will be in trouble.

Nervous about Thursday/Friday. I played 5 brackets. 3 of them I still have going to the final 4, Louisville, Arizona, Kansas, Syracuse. I think Arizona will beat Ohio St....Syracuse scares me(going by the current line 5.5), looks to me that they are begging you to bet Syracuse. My opinion Louisville is the best team and will be cutting down the nets. Looking forward to Thursday-Sunday...Gonna see some GREAT coaching match ups!!!!

Should be some great games over the 4 day period. I'd love to see Florida Gulf Coast beat Florida but I think the task is too large. Donovan will have 5 days to prepare and that's what going to make it tough on FLGC. The good thing is that it's as neutral of a site as your going to get since it's in Arlington.

As for Indiana/Syracuse I don't think they are begging you to take the 5.5 even if 52% of the public is on the Orange right now. Indiana is just that better in my opinion.

Miami FL is being heavily bet and the line has moved along with it from -5 to -6 currently. I think Marquette may home some trouble with Miami but and it's a big one.... if they can hit some early 3's to draw out the defense that will open up their strength with the inside game and that is their key to winning.

Friday is a key day for the state of Michigan and I think they games are EASYYYYYYYYYYYYYY to handicap. Michigan St won't be like Creighton and will man handle Duke. If Duke gets into foul trouble like they did Sunday, State will exploit them and rout the Blue Devils. I'd take the ML and the plus $$$ with Michigan State.

Kansas is going to beat Michigan by double digits. Laying only 2 points is a GIFT.

I think somewhere along the way Louisville gets tripped up. Not sure who or how but if you can beat their press and hit shots while getting to the line they can be beat. I think back to their 3 game losing streak during Big East play. Syracuse, Villanova and Georgetown. Villanova (46.8%) and Syracuse (49%) did this while hitting over 75% from the foul line.

Oregon can provide Louisville fits because they have ball handlers, speed and can do to Louisville what they do to others. It's always interesting to see how a team handles pressure when they are typically the presser.

All I can say is Oregon is dangerous and they are out to prove they are way better than a 12 seed. They feel they were overlooked and disparaged against. I like their chances and think 10 points is just too many. I like what they did to St Louis and no one did that to St Louis this year.

Back to the Syracuse game, I think this line is going to Indiana -6 to -6.5. It's currently -5.5 but I see a shift in public betting and I think it's going to continue and it should pump up the line.

The public is betting the hell out of Wichita St vs Lasalle and why we have seen the line move from -3 to -4. This line may push to -5 before tip. If you like Lasalle wait til near tip, if you like Wichita, now is the time to get that wager in. I must say Lasalle has impressed me more than any other team including FLGC just for the mere fact of how they have got to this point. 3 games in 5 days and contrasting styles to overcome. I will be pulling for the little engine that could in Lasalle. Nothing against Wichita St but things have just fallen right for them. You would think after beating a #1 seed and playing as they have this line would be much bigger. The books are sending out smoke signals for you but the public is ignoring it.

Marquette and Miami can turn into a grind game. Marquette will need to hit 3's and actually make their free throws. If not it could be ugly.

Ohio State will find a way to beat Arizona. They aren't Harvard or Belmont and Ohio State had it's scare with Iowa State. Traveling 3 time zones is something Ohio State rarely does but they are young men and will adjust. Kraft will do his thing in this one and I see a high scoring game in the 70's+ for each team so the over 134 looks like a great play.

Let's see how Thursday goes.

Syracuse money poured in late on Thursday driving the line down to +4.5 and the steam was on the right play. Marquette was indeed a grind game but they did the grinding and we have a Big East match up to see who goes to the Final 4. We will have at least one Big East team in Atlanta and Louisville will look to make it 2 of the 4 on Friday.

Wichita State pushed all the way up to -5 and from the get go they smothered La Salle. Nothing more to it, no size and when you don't score inside you get the outcome we had.

Ohio State found a way to win late once again and imagine the final score 73-70 as I noted both teams in the 70's and an easy over winner.

For Friday

No need for me to rehash Oregon/Louisville. Michigan St/Duke comes down to rebounding and interior play. Advantage State. If they can shut down Duke from the 3 point line it's going to be State moving forward. I love their chances.

Kansas vs Michigan to me this is Kansas's game to lose. I can't see a scenario with Michigan winning unless Withey gets into super early foul trouble.

I'd love to see FL Gulf Coast win because it would just continue the most unlikeliest run in NCAA history. When I think of cinderellas in NCAA Tournament history, I think of Valpo, Gonzaga, George Mason type teams but FLGC is much bigger than all of those. Think of how far this University has come in just it's 11 year existence. 6 years of organized sports. Beating Georgetown and then San Diego State by double digits and how they did it, to me is utterly amazing.

With Florida there isn't going to be any surprises, there isn't going to be any we didn't know what to expect. The story is everywhere, they are getting the press. Donovan will have his kids ready, they will be ready. FLGC has nothing to lose and can let it all hang loose, afterall, they aren't supposed to be here.

I'll be rooting like hell for this team but I think reality will show itself and Florida moves on. Let's just hope not!

Ohio State VS Kansas is still alive for me as that's who I have in my bracket pools.

My final 4 is Mich. St, Ohio St, Kansas, and Miami but they are out now.

Kansas 65 Ohio St 63 in the championship game.

I am still trying to figure out how Kansas lost an 8 point lead with 2 minutes to go and then a 5 point lead with 27 seconds remaining. Even though they lost in OT it's just an amazing way to end a season. They totally dominated this game except the last few minutes of regulation and in overtime. This game pretty much went the way I thought it would up to that point. Just poor execution and foul shooting to close it out. We won't even talk about the final Kansas possession in OT. In 1 word, horrific.
I said it was Kansas's game to lose and they did just that.

10 points proved to be a few too many for Louisville, however I think this game was a total fix job. I am not really one to be a conspiracy theory type however something really bizarre took place very late in the game. I believe it was about 130 left in the game and Louisville was up 10 and heading to the line and I heard someone tell the Louisville guys they had to keep it under 10. Like magic in the final ticks of the game the lead went from 12 to 10 to 8. All one has to do is watch that final 90 seconds and you'll just scratch your head.

Michigan State was a total bust in the second half of their game. It was just really bad offense and it is nice to say bad because frankly it fn sucked ass. Duke will get credit for great defense but it wasn't. Michigan State couldn't convert when they needed to, went a super long stretch without a basket and at one point had 4 straight turnover which put the game from behind 3 to behind 11 I believe. Louisville will HAMMER Duke.

Florida did what they needed to do and I think there was funny business as well in this game. How many foul shots did Florida miss in the final 2 minutes. Why all of a sudden was there this burst of energy from FLGC to score in the final 2 minutes. Go back and watch and you tell me differently. I am serious here.

As for Saturday

Syracuse and Marquette played a month ago with Marquette winning by 3 at home as a 1.5 dog. Now on a neutral court you have Syracuse favored by 4.5. The difference in the first game was Marquette outscored Syracuse 29-5 from the foul line. Syracuse only attempted 7 foul shots while Marquette attempted 35 foul shots. That won't happen this game and I think we see some revenge take place. Syracuse to the Final 4.

Wichita is the lowest seed remaining now and won't be around for the Final 4. In what should be a thrilling type game, look for Ohio State to once again win this in the final minute or two of the game. I think it will be close throughout and the only way Ohio State loses is if Wichita goes nuts on 3 pointers again.

Ohio State is my only team left in the Final 4 for what I predicted after seeding and a month and half before the tournament was put together.

I am still shaking my head at these comments on 2/1 by yours truly......... I would play against, Indiana, Duke, Michigan and sorry to say Florida

Yea ok, what do I know.

I didn't watch the FL/MI game and watched the first half of the Duke/Louisville game. After Louisville went up 6, I just had the sound on and did other things.

There isn't any team left that can or will beat Louisville. It's over!
