2011 NCAA Tournament – First Round Odds

2011 NCAA Tournament First Round odds were available at SBG Global for Penn State vs. Temple, Utah State vs. Kansas State, Northern Colorado vs. San Diego State and Belmont vs. Wisconsin. 

Temple comes into their game against Penn State having lost to Richmond in the semi-finals of the Atlantic 10 Tournament, a game they were favored to win.  They finish the season with a record of 25-7 and 14-2 in the Atlantic 10.  Underdog Penn State comes into the Tournament with a 19-14 record.

The Owls would seem to have an advantage in this game, averaging more points, more assists, more rebounds and they have a better field goal percentage.  Gambling911.com was on the money with its early line estimate, noting that Temple would likely open as the -2 favorite. 

Here is one we didn’t get:  Gambling911.com said that Kansas State should open as a double digit favorite.  Instead, SBG Global has them at -1.5.  We say jump all over Kansas State at -1.5 in this 2011 NCAA Tournament First Round game.  The odds are skewed here, at least in our opinion.
