I'm going to use this thread to keep track of all of my conference tournament futures picks instead of separate posts scattered through the 2 week-long tournament championship stretch. Using 5Dimes Cleveland State +700 Horizon
$10 to win $70
I locked this in last night but missed it at the original +900 number. It's now down to +500 as people seem to be recognizing the tremendous value for the Vikings. They're going to be favored in their first two games (huge faves tonight against UIC) so there would be a great hedging opportunity in the final. Of course, they'd have to get by Butler to get there, a tall order given the way Butler has dominated the series. But Norris Cole has picked up his game in the last few weeks and is the type of player who can carry a team for a few games. The supporting cast has shown up at times and disappeared during others, so they'll need to give Cole some help if Cleveland State is to get as far as it feels it should. They probably won't win, but it's a worth a chance at what was an inflated number.
