Odds are fascinating.
They reveal significant information about what the well-connected suits in Vegas are thinking. And today, they’re thinking Tech has a legitimate shot at the title.
The 22:1 odds given to the Red Raiders to win the national championship are the best Tech’s had all year. Still, of the remaining teams in the East region, Vegas has the least amount of confidence in Chris Beard’s team compared to the likes of Purdue, West Virginia and Villanova.
Who will win the East region?
Duke has the best odds to win the Big Dance at 13:4, with Villanova behind the Blue Devils at 9:2, and then, perhaps most surprising, Gonzaga at 7:1.
Lastly, the line for Texas Tech vs. Purdue has been posted:
Texas Tech (+1.5)
Looks like we’re the underdogs again, friends.
