Below is a list of the updated odds for the 2014 NCAA Tournament. Barring a major injury or suspension, any team from 25/1 down should make a run for the money.

Personally, Oklahoma State and San Diego State are given very liberal odds while never-say-die teams like North Carolina and Michigan have some value. Wichita State has been a monster this season but has a real uphill climb to make it through the more battle-tested squads.  Of course, you can never count out teams like Kentucky, Duke, MSU, Florida, 'Zona, Kansas, and the 'Cuse. But I believe that Duke, MSU, and Syracuse are a head above the rest of the class.

The one thing is that during this time of season: the conference tournaments, where anything can happen. It's the seeding and the opponents that can give you the most trouble in the Big Dance.

Remember that just because you don't make it to the Big Show doesn't mean there isn't value and money to be made in the NIT, CBI, and CIT.
