I bet a buddy last night that the Spartans will be a #1 Seed. I got good odds, 5-1. My $100 versus his $500.
What say you?
With the odds, you made the right choice.
Your basically betting that we win a share of the B1G ( probably around 50-75%) and then get to the final of the B1G Tourney.
5-1 odds sounds like a good bet for those 2 things happening
Both OSU and MSU were in this scenario last year. I know MSU got a #1 seed, but OSU didn't, right?

If you believe that the committee will feel forced to give a Big 10 team (since it's the number 1 conference) a 1 seed, you're getting great odds.
That's kind of what I was thinking. Our team is play exceptionally well right now. Earlier than usual for an Izzo team really. I was several beers in, but I liked the odds.
My projected top 4 Seeds:
At those odds for this kind of bet, I think you should start making more bets with your buddy.
Is your urine green? Actually that may not be related to your green kool-aid consumption.
Sounds like a good bet though.

You're buying in Atlanta. And Auburn Hills.
Thank you, Denicos.
Big Doug, there are times when we Spartans drink a lot of Kool Aid. We have all seen it and done it. Not this time though. I honestly believe MSU is the best team in the country. They play the best defense, and they combine that with great rebounding, a balanced offense that can play a half-court, inside/outside game while also possessing a fast break that can be lethal. Add to that, a HOF coach and a great coaching staff that can prepare them quickly and completely. If that won't do it, then maybe the iPads will!
Some people think guys like you and I are full of Kool Aid right now. There are years when that would be true. I do not believe this year is one of them. Don't know about the seeding, that depends on a lot of things, including people's opinions.
Its five o'clock somewhere.
It doesn't hurt our chances that Mark Hollis is now on the selection committee. Not that he would be biased or anything, but he will be waving a B1G Ten banner, I imagine.
It's all I have drank since Tuesday.....

Not enough depth.
the odds are that you are drinking too much, due to your sheer size.
Just remember he was probably several beers too. Hell, I wish I hung out with the same drunks as you. I'd be rich. Or.... at least less poor.
You are going to win your bet!
Nίκη για MSU
Normally, that is the case...but with the B1G being the strongest it has ever been, I wouldn't be surprised to see 3 #1 seeds from the B1G. Using a simple test, the picture will emerge quickly for the selection committee..."If Team #3 from the B1G was in Team #1's position from any other conference, where would they be in the polls?"...
Too soon to tell if you are drinking too much Kool-Aid. Highly possible win IMHO. I like the bet and the odds you got.
The indoctrinated will no longer be able to deny it, only defend it.
Trice comes back they are fine. Plus Valentine is getting better.
It was a shot at Ernie McKraken. Probably should have had him sign the post.
Oh ok. Sorry.
Lot of money but with those odds, wow. I'd probably do it too.
If MSU beats IU you are golden! Bet sounds great given the odds.
