Can Nevada or San Diego State win the national title?

The NCAA Tournament is a few days away from starting but we have plenty of odds and predictions to get you all prepared for the Big Dance.

For those under a rock, Nevada is a No. 7 seed taking on 10th-seeded Texas while San Diego State is a No. 11 seed going up against Houston out of the AAC.

The oddsmakers put odds out for the whole tournament and the region. It should not be shocked that neither the Wolf Pack or Aztecs are getting great odds. Nevada is +50000 while San Diego State is getting much better odds at +20000 and that has to do with the potential bracket draw and not necessarily how good either team is.
