Because I know some of you gamble ...

Bodog.com likes Kansas and Kentucky just as much as I like Kansas and Kentucky .

I visited the gambling site not because I'm a gambler, but because I wanted see the championship odds for certain schools. What I found is that Kansas (4-to-1) is the favorite followed by Kentucky (5-to-1). North Carolina (15-to-2) is third. Then it's Duke (10-to-1), Michigan State (12-to-1), Louisville (12-to-1), Texas (12-to-1), and Villanova (12-to-1).

I think all KY fans should take out all their money from the bank and 401k plans and put it on KY for the National Championship.  KY fans love to talk trash... now put your money where your mouth is.

I agree with you. It seems far fetched for a lot of these teams to have such "good" or "bad" odds. but these odds makers base all of their odds on tons of research and special formulas and factors.  It will be interesting to see.  Thats why they play the games and thats why college basketball is so fun to watch.

Some of the other odds are just stupid.

Alabama 20/1... This is basketball, not football, right?
Arizona 35/1... How can you win it all if you can't even make the tourney?
Butler 50/1... Um, what?  This is a blatant slap in the face to Butler.  Good team to bet on though with this sort of value.
Dayton 200/1... I'll take those odds
Florida 16/1... So they're right behind Mich. St, Texas, and Nova?
Missouri 30/1... They do know Carroll graduated, right?
