Heading into Friday's games, Bookmaker.com was offering odds to win the 2009 NCAA Basketball Championship for the NCAA (B) teams (those playing on Friday).

There were a few teams that won Thursday that had very big payout odds should they go all the way.

LSU beat Butler early on in the day.  Many believed Butler could upset LSU.  The Tigers would pay close to $13000 for every $100 bet if they were to win the 2009 NCAA Basketball Championship.

Purdue just barely escaped Northern Iowa's last minute surge.  Should Purdue somehow win the championship, they would pay out $5000 for every $100 bet.

Texas A&M beat out a higher seeded BYU team for the second year in a row.  Five Aggies scored in double digits led by Bryan Davis' season-high 21 points.  This was among the most definitive wins on Thursday from a team that wasn't among the top 3 seeds.  If Texas A&M goes all the way, they pay $25000 for every $100 bet at Bookmaker.com

Number 10-seeded Maryland beat number 7-seed California.  Maryland would pay out $20,000 if they were to win the championship.

Mississippi State was clobbered by Washington despite favorable trends suggesting an upset.  Washington would pay $4000 for every $100 bet if they were to win the championship.

A lot of people believed Michigan could beat Clemson and they did just that by 3 points.  The Wolverines would pay out $20000 if they won the championship.  They were a number 10 seed, Clemson was a number 7 seed.

Michigan wins its first tournament game since 1998 as the Wolverines hand the Tigers another close NCAA loss. Clemson's last six tournament losses have come by a combined 26 points.

There were those who thought Minnesota could upset Texas and that just didn't materialize. 

Gonzaga and Villanova each had easy wins.  These are two teams to watch closely.  Gonzaga pays $2500 for every $100 bet while Villanova pays $3300 for every $100 bet at Bookmaker.com.
