2007-08 Sports Betting Preview

We still have a bit of a wait for GU-William & Mary, but it seems like a good time to preview how Las Vegas is viewing this year's Hoyas. According to, the Hoyas are Final Four bound again this year. Of course, any lines at this stage of the season have to be taken with a grain of salt, but it's nice to see the team getting the respect that they deserve.

This season I'll be keeping the blog updated on individual game and long-term betting trends, which I expect will consist of frequently reporting that the Hoyas are a heavy favorite. (Thank you Mr. Hibbert!)

Nicely done, Johnny. Nicely done indeed.

I was in Vegas over the weekend and I was able to get 12-1 odds on the Hoyas winning it all at the Mandalay Bay sports book. I jumped on them -- Georgetown was behind UCLA, Memphis, UNC, Kansas, Louisville and Tennesee.
