The experts at ESPN think that No. 4 seed Michigan State are the frontrunners to win the entire tournament, but does Vegas agree?  Not so fast. According to Vegas, No. 1 seed Florida leads the pack, followed by the Spartans, then No.4 seed Louisville. Virginia is the least favored of the four top seeds.
