Question.

Has a double digit seed ever been favored in both of their games over better seeded teams in the history of the tournament? My guess is no. Any way to find this out?

Not sure. We should have been favored Thursday. I saw that coming. Today, not so sure that we are better. Time will tell.

i didn't watch the betting lines, but wichita state was favored in all 3 games (incl first-4) that they've played in this tourney according to both kenpom and fivethirtyeight.com. seems possible... and maybe even likely... that the zags aren't the only double digit seeds to be favored in the first two rounds this year.

edit: ekrub beat me to it.

Nicely done. So both Wichita State and Gonzaga were favored over their 6th and 3rd seeded opponents. I still think this is a very rare thing.

Just another shining example of the selection committee's work this year. :horse:

Wichita State was favoured by Vegas all of their games. By bigger margins.

Didn't help them today :)

We want to be where the smart money goes, not the public.
