The ACC plans to propose legislation to expand the NCAA tournament field from 68 to 72 teams, commissioner John Swofford said at the conclusion of the league's spring meetings in Amelia Island, Florida. Swofford said the men's basketball coaches endorsed the proposal, citing more postseason opportunities for football teams compared to basketball teams.

This is music to the bookmakers ears as the increase will surely mean even more betting during March Madness.

This year's March Madness sent Las Vegas' handle past half a billion dollars.

On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that individual states may pass legislation allowing legalized sports wagering, including on the NCAA Men's College Basketball tournament.
