Revised Odds for Sweet 16 Teams to win it all

Postby True_Blue » Mon Mar 20, 2017 12:41 pm

Thought this to be quite bizarre.
BEFORE the tourney started, XU's odd's to win the tourney were 20-1. (which I was surprised it wasn't 200-1)
AFTER winning 2 games, our odds are now 100-1 !

Odd for every other team got better...significantly better for most...except UK which went from 6-1 to 7-1.

Disrespect I tell ya!

I think somebody forgot a zero on the original odds.

As finalfour notes, guessing there was an error in X's listing. Saw odds in the 150-1 to 250-1 in the pre-Tournament lines.

Proof-reading is no longer valued in journalism or articles, as it was years ago.

X was 20-1 preseason and most polls had us in the Top 10. I beat it then
