Further evidence the NCAA Tournament seeding committee botched many of the seedings: Las Vegas has quickly made Duke, a #2 seed, the favorite to win the tournament. The committee had Duke as the 7th overall seed in the tournament, even though many believe they should have been a #1 seed.

North Carolina 6/1
Villanova, of course, is on a collision course with Duke in the Elite 8, while UNC and Kentucky could face off in the Elite 8 as well.
Gonzaga got such an easy draw, I’m surprised it isn’t higher.
