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
6 seed UNLV is -3 vs. 11 seed Colorado.
The goal is to have the best possible name. Not surprisingly, "Your gay," is the leader in the clubhouse thus far.
