Default Looking for some NCAA tournament advice

I am not a huge follower of Basketball but the folks at work are doing a little betting thing with the remaining 16 teams.

I drew Kansas as my team. We dont have to commit yet until we see if we can get all 16 teams taken. 14 are gone....I am sure we will find 2 more people.

Then we will have to pay. I can still bail now if I want.

Its a win the whole thing scenario. Winner takes all...everyone else kicks rocks.

What do you think of thier chances? I am looking at the bracket and if they beat Clemson they are most likely playing Duke next if they beat Syracuse.

I would be stunned if Kansas won it all. Nova and Duke look like the clear cut two best teams right now.

Agree with regularp, however, I would still take them. They have a better chance than anyone other than Duke or Villanova. You have the 3rd best team available. You are getting 15-1 on your money. Ride it out.

Only 6 teams can win it most likely. That’s 1 of them. I’d roll with it. Mathematically like stated above, the price is good.

Brutal that they would pick before all 16 joined

If two spots not t aken that means they might not sell if terrible teams

You have a one seed
Only two one seeds left

Sure anything can happen but you have a decent shot with Kansas

15-1 odds. Nice

It most likely will be Villanova with Kansas / duke up against Kentucky?

Person running it should collect up front, wait until 16 join, then pick teams

IMO the way this was handled is pretty stupid. Why would anyone stay in the pool or pay if they got Loyola/Nevada/KSU. You pay before you pick and its luck of the draw. You should keep Kansas regardless if they sucked because you picked them.

I agree with you guys. They did this all wrong. The guy who did it was not exactly a mafia bookie or anything. He is just some yokel I work with.

The last two teams not drawn before today were Michigan and Kentucky.

Both those teams were taken today and everyone has paid in. We shall see.

Its no great amount of money $25 a team....Winner takes all $400

$400 is $400...I will gladly take it.

I was thinking something along those lines as well. Could have also done something so all 4 Final Four teams won a little something.

Villanova
Purdue
Kansas
Duke
Michigan
Kentucky (Obviously can't anymore)

I am still alive. Tough task against Duke coming up.

These two teams seem to be more of the historic schools in college basketball history.

Like I said I am not a huge basketball fan. I do seem to enjoy it when I am doing well though. LOL.

It seems like Kansas-Villanova should be the championship game though.

Not so sure about that, Loyola and Michigan have the nations 2 longest winning streaks.
Kansas and Michigan would be just about a pick em

Good luck OP!

I’m pulling for a Kansas vs Michigan Finals myself!
