Now here are some gambling lines I wanted to see from the NCAA Tournament. Of course betting the second half is the trendy thing these days (I watch Vegas Dave tout it non-stop, I get the game), but how about betting on if punches are thrown during a tournament game. Now that’s some next-level gambling. Before you think it’s crazy to think of teams fighting during a tourney game, let’s go back to last year when New Orleans teammates nearly traded punches during a timeout – see below.

MyTopSportsBook.com is out with the crazy lines for the tourney.

Odds a punch is thrown in …

  • #2 Duke vs #15 Iona: 49/1
  • #1 Xavier vs #16 NC Central/Texas Southern: 59/1
  • #8 Creighton vs #9 Kansas State: 74/1
  • #5 West Virginia vs #12 Murray State: 84/1
  • Any Other First-Round Game: 24/1

The smart money here would go on the West Virginia-Murray State game. Emotions are going to be high in San Diego for this one. You get a couple of good ol boys firing up the teams and punches just might start flying.

Remember when a West Virginia player did this back in January?
