Memphis Tigers Odds to Win the 2009 NCAA Championship

The Memphis Tigers were one team with double digit payout odds that stood a good chance of winning the 2009 NCAA Championship.

Though they were made a second seed, many believed that Memphis deserved to be a number one seed.

Mike Lupica of the New York Daily News is one such individual.

"Somehow after all the games Calipari's team has won the last two seasons - 69 is the number - it is as if they are still not part of the club in college basketball," Lupica wrote on Monday. "Now in the end it doesn't mean very much in March and April whether you are a No. 1 or No. 2 going into the NCAA Tournament. The Memphis Tigers still ought to have been a No. 1 yesterday and were not. Calipari still gets treated like the coach from the wrong side of the tracks. But then he is used to that by now."

"'Judge my team, not my conference,' he said early in the day, before he went on television for the first time with CBS and tried to say all the right things, about his own team and about the competition for the four No. 1 seeds.

"So UConn gets the No. 1 seed that Memphis doesn't. So maybe the two of them can settle all this in the West Regional. But UConn is 4-3 since Jerome Dyson - who isn't coming back and without whom the Huskies aren't the same team that rolled through so much of the regular season - ripped up a knee. And not having Dyson showed the longer that UConn-Syracuse game went toward Friday morning."

Gambling911.com searched high and low for the very best odds on Memphis to win the 2009 NCAA Championship.  You might be amazed at what we found:

Memphis odds to win the championship ranged anywhere from 5/1 (+500) to 15/1 (+1500).  Those +1500 odds would pay out $1500 for every $100 bet and they were available at SBG Global, which was also offering top cash bonuses with all new online betting accounts.

"This is a perfect example of why it is so important to shop around for the best line," explained Payton O'Brien, matriarch of the Gambling911.com website.  "Should Memphis win the championship, SBG Global would pay out $1000 more than some of its competitors on a $100 bet.  Need I say more?"
