I can tell by reading some of the posts here that we have some guys that follow college bb a helluva lot closer than I so I'm hoping someone can give me some opinions on the following.

I'm in a 64 man($100 each) March Madness pot and got Montana.The game works by the closing Vegas line i.e. if Montana covers the (as of now Wisconsin -9 spread or happens to win outright) I would advance either taking over Wisconsin from the now owner or of course keeping Montana.

Does anyone know anything about Montana?Do I even have a shot at this or did I just piss $100 away?

TIA

I'd like your odds a lot better if you had a 1st half line of +4 or something along that. I think Montana can hang for a half.

The one thing you've got going for you is that Wisconsin is ranked pretty low in just about all offensive categories, so they may not put up a whole lot against Montana. Montana shoots the ball fairly well, so if they are hot, it will remain a close game.

They shoot almost 40% from three and are in the top 35 in the nation in FG defense as well. I wouldn't be completely stunned if this was the upset of the tourney.
I would feel better with this spread than many others on the board.

They beat one of the tournament darlings, Long Beach State earlier in the year, and if I'm not mistaken they've won something like 13 in a row

Thanks.

I usually always look at betting the under when Wisconsin is involved and so far it looks as though they have the lowest O/U of the first two days at 116.

Appreciate it,good info,makes that under I was talking about above look even more inviting.

9 is a helluva spread for a team like Wisconsin. Unlike others, I am higher on Wisconsin as a threat to go deep in the tourney, but they play a style that doesn’t exactly blow people out. I’d expect this game to be in the 50s.

Wisconsin may win the game but there's a good chance it certainly wont be by 9 lol

Not looking real good for Montana and the points right now Joe. Maybe they will have a second half surge.

Looks like I completely missed the boat on this one. Wisconsin is up 16 with 15 minutes to go.

I guess it isn't over just yet. Lead down to 10 with 12 to go

71-49 now with about 2 minutes. Must have been the old classic run, then run out of gas.
