Villanova vs. George Mason Odds

Villanova vs. George Mason odds were listed at George Mason -1.5 at BetDSI.com while the Indiana State vs. Syracuse line had the Orange as big -11.5 favorites.  Xavier was a -1.5 favorite against Marquette.  Expect the Ohio State spread to be huge once this game is determined.  The Buckeyes are the overall number one seed.

"It's a great opponent," said Patriots guard Cam Long of Villanova. "We were looking forward to this. We'll try to take advantage of this as much as we can."

Gambling911.com noted early on that it is Villanova that should have been made the -1.5 favorite in this game.

It is indeed rare that Villanova would be listed as an underdog in an NCAA tournament.

The perception coming into the tournament is that Villanova had come unraveled as the season came to a close.

"It's probably the first time a team went 16-1 and lost five at the end,” said Villanova Coach Jay Wright.  |Let's give ourselves some credit for [what we did] early in the season. You want to learn from the mistakes. But let's not forget that. We just want to reinforce the habits of playing [good] basketball."This is a reward. Let's have some fun with it. But it's a different perspective for us going in. We know we're in the underdog role . . . us against the world. It's almost like we have to prove ourselves. That's how people are looking at us. The last few years there were expectations that we were supposed to go [far]. Now, a lot of people are expecting us to fail. I can't blame them. We relish that position. We know how to do it, [because] we've done it. We have to use that to our advantage."Elsewhere, expect Marquette to upset against Xavier.   We said early on they should be favored but figured the seeding would require oddsmakers to make Xavier a fairly big favorite.  Instead, they have made Xavier a mere -1.5 fav.
