The opening round of the NCAA Tournament gets all the attention, but conference championship week is quickly becoming the next biggest event on the betting calendar. Reports from the ground in Vegas this week have said the mid-week crowds are bigger than ever, and a huge weekend is expected, with everything culminating with Selection Sunday.

The market feasted yesterday, as the blue bloods and the ranked teams crushed the number against their inferior competition. Many teams covered with ease, including Duke (by 21½) and Kansas (by 17). You don’t think those ranked sides dominating isn’t going to resonate in the market as they head to the windows at the sportsbooks today?

It is with that in mind that we are going to attack those overvalued, ranked teams today (we know Miami is #13, but Duke is Duke and they are on TV more than “Leave it to Beaver” re-runs). However, rather than break down each game, we are going to list them here in one thread, as the reason for our playing them is the same.

Officially, we are in on:

Penn State +1½ -103 over Northwestern - 2.06u to win 2u

Iowa State +5 -110 over Kansas - 2.2u to win 2u

Miami (FL) +2½ -108 over Duke - 2.16u to win 2u

Maryland +2 -105 over Indiana - 2.10u to win 2u

Vanderbilt +8½ -104 over Kentucky - 2.08u to win 2u

Total units wagered: 10.6. We will update these results tomorrow morning
