Looking to get rich quick this weekend? Then look no farther than Gregg Marshall's Wichita State Wheat Shockers. While the Shockers were a long-shot to even get to Atlanta, you can still get some good deals on America's Cinderella this weekend.

Wichita State #9 12/1

If any team is well coached enough to get past the Louisville press its Wichita State. Gregg Marshall's squad had no problem with VCU's "HAVOC" earlier in the year and have a blueprint for how to break the press. The Shockers also may be one of the more sound defensive teams that Rick Pitino's squad runs into.

Who will win the NCAAB Basketball Tournament Most Outstanding Player?

Russ Smith (Louisville) 4/5

Trey Burke (Michigan) 4/1

Peyton Siva (Louisville) 7/1

Mitch McGary (Michigan) 10/1

Michael Carter-Williams (Syracuse) 12/1

Gorgui Deng (Louisville) 15/1

Brandon Triche (Syracuse) 15/1

C.J. Fair (Syracuse) 18/1

James Southerland (Syracuse) 20/1

Nik Stauskas (Michigan) 20/1

Tim Hardaway Jr. (Michigan) 20/1

Malcolm Armstead (Wichita State) 30/1

Carl Hall (Wichita State) 30/1

Cleanthony Early (Wichita State) 30/1

I'm going with Carl Hall here, but solely based on his Rec Specs. I think if Hall still had braids then his odds would be higher. Vegas is clearly penalizing him for his new, boring hairstyle.

In a tournament where long-shots have been more successful than normal, why not cash-in on the Shockers? I'll put $10 on Wichita State to win it all, play Syracuse, and for Carl Hall to win MOP. BOOM! $520 richer.
