Early NCAA Tournament Lines of Interest
The NCAA Tournament field is out and already early lines for the week's games are out.
But I thought I would hit you with the lines that jumped out the most at me.
Georgetown opened just -5 against Belmont in a 3 vs. 14 match-up and within the first hour of posted odds the line dropped to Georgetown -4. That's really low for a seed disparity like this and suggests many are impressed with Belmont's chances.
Similarly, Florida State is just a -5.5 against 14 seed St. Bonaventure.
These are the two closest lines for major seed differential.
Other close lines relative to seeding:
This the only time thus far that the higher seed is the favorite.
6 seed San Diego State is a straight pick 'em against 11 seed N.C. State.
At least there's no record of Vandy losing as first round favorite...wait
The goal is to have the best possible name. Not surprisingly, "Your gay," is the leader in the clubhouse thus far.
