    UConn opens as one of the biggest Final Four favorites of the last 50 years.

    The NCAA needs Duke in the Final Four. Nobody cares about Alabama, Tennessee or NC State, or even Purdue. But people will watch Duke, most hoping to see them get pounded.

    Reason I picked Duke to win it was UConn's first title, I think they were +10 against Duke in the final. This time, it'll be reversed, although probably 8 points or so.

    Duke is like the Yankees, and the Cowboys for instance.
    Brand public names the casual sports fans usually watch just because of the brand name.
    Bookies love brand names, they know the public bets them, so they juice the lines often.

    O/U is 161.5

    Seems a little high. No?

    UCONN is also tight on defense. If Alabama thinks they are going to run up and down the court, well, that’s not going to happen.

    I thought pretty much the same thing when I saw the opener.
