Another great win this weekend for Beilein and crew, and if things keep falling as expected it’s very likely the Wolverines will find themselves somewhere inside the bracket this March. ESPN bracket guru Joe Lunardi projects Michigan as a 9th seed right now with obviously a lot of schedule to be played.
I checked out a couple sports betting sites to see if any future odds were posted on the tournament. Sure enough, they’ve released the futures on the 2009 NCAA tournament here. I can’t tell when it was last updated, at the top it reads January 31, 2009 – so I’m not sure what that means.
The goods: Michigan is a +10,000 moneyline longshot to cut down the nets in Detroit, meaning your $100 college basketball bet would win you $10,000. So you’re saying there’s a chance. Let’s say the team improves and they end up a 6 or 7 seed-who’s to say they can get hot and get through? They’ll then be playing practically at home at Ford Field.
If you’ve got a few bucks and a few stones, you could be laughing all they way to the bank in these hard times.
Other odds of interest:
+250 – North Carolina
+1600 – Duke
+1800 – UCLA
+2500 – Michigan State, Purdue
+5000 – Ohio State
