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.
Odds to win the 2013 NCAAB Men's Basketball Championship
Louisville #1 2/3
Michigan #4 3/1
Syracuse #4 17/4
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.

Mitch McGary (Michigan) 10/1
Michael Carter-Williams (Syracuse) 12/1
Gorgui Deng (Louisville)

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.
