College Hoops Take Center Stage!

The last couple years I remember talking about how there is so much parity in College Basketball and how this year will be a wide-open wild March Madness. Well it looks like those two years aren’t the exception but it has more turned into the rule. We are two weeks before the Super Bowl and we don’t have any undefeated teams remaining in Division 1 College Hoops. Over the past 3 years there has only been 1 team that has gone this far undefeated, last year’s Gonzaga team. And the parity isn’t just shown by the lack of undefeated teams. Of the current Top-15 AP Rankings, 6 of the teams have 4 loses already, 4 have 3 loses and 3 more with 2 loses. There are 3 teams with 5 loses in the Top-25. So with the parity, things could be real interesting when we take a look at how Vegas sees things playing out. Let’s take a look at the current odds to win the 2018 NCAA Tournament.

I am not ready to go out on any limbs and make some predictions for the Championship but let me just tell you to really start watching things closely. Over the next 2 or 3 weeks you will start seeing teams coming together, young players starting to emerge as star and other teams that start falling apart. While you do that make sure you check in with our Razor Sharp Hoops action daily at www.freeplays.com. Plus don’t forget the Super Bowl, Super Bowl Props, NBA & NHL action! Good Luck!
