And now, even currently deemed Bubble-watchers VCU, Middle Tennessee State, UT-Arlington, Eastern Tennessee State and Illinois State get over-hyped and over-bet because both sharps and the general public are totally hip to these thought to be under-the-radar schools in the bettors modern day Digital Age quest for their own “Bracket Busters.” They're not under the radar anymore and outside of the Zags, few have real shots at winning the NCAA Basketball championship.
Schools like Wichita State and St. Marys seem like longshots to even get to the Sweet Sixteen this season and the way things usually break down, teams from the power conferences usually make it to the second weekend of the Big Dance, especially with past realignment putting former lower-profile teams like Butler and Creighton in a power conference like the Big East which may honestly hold the best overall Futures bet and value in defending champions, Villanova.
