2010 NCAA Tournament Championship

BetUS.com has released its 2010 NCAA Tournament Championship odds to win with Kansas the obvious favorite at 7/4 odds.  Another number one-seeded team, Duke, would pay out $700 for every $100 bet or $70 for every $10 bet

"Any team not a number one seed will pay double digit odds should they win the 2010 NCAA Tournament Championship," explains Don Shapiro of Gambling911.com.

Ohio State, for example, would pay out $120 for every $10 bet.

Some important trends to keep in mind when reviewing top seeded teams:

Since the NCAA started seeding teams (1979), only once have all #1 seeds made it to the Final Four (National Semifinals):

         ▪         2008 Kansas, North Carolina, UCLA, Memphis (Memphis' season was later vacated by the NCAA due to use of an ineligible player)

The championship game has matched two #1 seeds only six times:

         ▪         1982 North Carolina defeated Georgetown

         ▪         1993 North Carolina defeated Michigan

         ▪         1999 Connecticut defeated Duke

         ▪         2005 North Carolina defeated Illinois

         ▪         2007 Florida defeated Ohio State

         ▪         2008 Kansas defeated Memphis

At least one #1 seed has made the Final Four in every year except:

         ▪         1980 -- Louisville - #2, Iowa - #5, Purdue - #6, UCLA - #8

         ▪         2006 -- UCLA - #2, Florida - #3, LSU - #4, George Mason - #11

The only team to beat three #1 seeds in a single tournament was #4 seed Arizona in 1997. Due to tournament structure, it's impossible to play a team from each one of the regions in a single tournament, thus it is impossible to play all four #1 seeds in a single tournament.

▪ 2009 marked the first time in tournament history that all 12 of the 1, 2, and 3 seeds made it to the Sweet 16.

About 62 to 64 games have been played by each team so far, and that means we’re very close to the end of the regular season; 18 to 20 games or so. Nothing is set on stone yet; however, we’re starting to get a first glance of what the post season could look like, teams are starting to claim their spots, and of course, superstars are doing their best to help their teams achieve the ultimate goal, which is to get to the NBA Finals and fight for a ring.
