What were the odds?

What are the odds or where the odds of George Mason

Let us brake them down

before the March Madness even started the George Mason Patriot's where as high as 400-to-1 to win the whole March Madness Final Four in Indianapolis.

"There has been no truly dominant team this year, so if there was a year to take a longshot this might have been it," said John Avello, director of the race and sports book at Wynn Las Vegas.

Can you now believe that the George Mason Patriots, a No. 11 seed, at 300-to-1, have now increased there odds every game they keep winning of course, but still are pretty much the ultimate Cinderalle long shot! Those odds now likely will be somewhere in between 8-to-1 and 15-to-1.

The stats state or we know that there has been no seed higher then No. 8 Villanova back in 1985 to EVER and we do mean EVER WIN the national championship game. So the odds are very slim.

George Mason finished its regular season at 22-6 and received an at-large bid into the Tournament after losing to Hofstra in the Colonial Athletic Association tournament semifinals. The Patriots were 0-3 in their previous three NCAA appearances.

Interested to see the odds being played out!!
