|Players at SportingbetUSA.com were looking towards Uconn as a safe bet last week but their shock defeat to George Mason U proved once again why March really is a time of Madness in the NCAA basketball tournament.|
SportingbetUSA.com Manager, Tony Delgado said, 'A lot of guys just assumed UConn would go through to the Final Four. Odds were 2-1 that they’d go all the way. George Mason?! Where’d they come from all of a sudden? We had them at 100-1 last week and now they’re real contenders at 9-2.'
George Mason point guard, Tony Skinn agrees with Delgado’s sentiments. 'We weren't supposed to beat Michigan State and we did. We weren't supposed to beat North Carolina and we did. We definitely weren't supposed to beat UConn and we did. We don't mind being a Cinderella,' he said.
Delgado continued, 'America loves betting on March Madness. It’s actually bigger than the Super bowl since it's so many teams over so much time. But everyone has their local or alumni favourite to back, and as the teams are eliminated, they look to bet against their team's biggest rivals.'
