College Basketball Betting LinesThe moment of "madness" of March reached college basketball's with the NCAA betting tournament this year has left teams Kansas, Kentucky, Duke and Syracuse as the four top seeds for the different regional groups . While Kansas, Kentucky and Duke received the designation from the seeded teams have won titles in their respective conference tournaments, Syracuse did for his career during the regular college basketball betting season, losing in the Big East.

For that reason, the Orangemen, who had made a great season, were placed as top seed in the West Regional, based in Salt Lake City and also start the competition on Thursday without their starting center Arinze Onuaku, injured. While Kansas will Jayhakws in Midwestern St. Louis leads the Eastern Kentucky, in Syracuse, and Duke's head reaches the South series, which will be played in Houston.

Starting next Thursday, 65 teams, chosen by the selection committee for the NCAA betting, contending for the national college basketball betting title, a competition that will be the focus of sport in the U.S. until the next five plays April, the big game of the Final Four in Indianapolis.

Quite absent from the competition will undoubtedly be the Arizona Wildcats, who have been excluded, to break a streak of 25 consecutive years with its presence in the college tournament. While Kansas now takes its place with 21 consecutive seasons contesting the national tournament, followed by Duke who has done 15 times and Michigan State 13.

Dan Guerrero, the selection committee chairman of the NCAA Odds, said that the election process takes into account all the teams have done during the regular season. "We're talking about a decision that takes into account the entire season, not what is done in the end," said Guerrero. "That is the main element in this regard Syracuse and received credit for their work in regular competition," he added.

Although the decision of the selection committee each year does not leave everyone happy, what is no doubt that with this year will generate a new national champion, since the current defending champions, the Tar Heels of North Carolina , were not included among the guests.

Nor are other teams that are traditional and classic competition in the NCAA as the UCLA Bruins, the Hoorsiers Indiana and Connecticut Huskies that bind to the decline in the Arizona Wildcats. For the first time since 1966 that the historic five-team U.S. college basketball will not be in competition for the "March Madness".

"It will be strange that tremendous team with great traditions are not in the national competition," admitted Guerrero. "But I think it also reflects the kind of culture that has given this season in college basketball betting," he said.

The absence of leaves Arizona Kansas (32-2) as the team that most times in a row enters the tournament and also emerges as a favorite and 2-1 in the gambling world of Las Vegas to get the national title would be his second in the last three seasons.

The Jayhawks, who played in the Midwest Regional, based in St. Louis, arriving in the competition led by Sherron Collins and Cole Aldrich, key players in the victories achieved during the regular season. The first test to see if they can get to Indianapolis they will have when he faces the winner of the duel in the bottom of the table waiting for the Ohio State Buckeyes, which are numbers two and Georgetown Hoyas (3).

The Kentucky Wildcats (32-2) will have as great rival to the West Virginia Mountaineers (27-6) in the East Regional, the Duke Blue Devils (29-5) at Villanova Wildcats (24-7), in the South and the Syracuse Orangemen (28-4) at Kansas State Wildcats (26-7) in the West.
