Legacies are on the line tonight when Michigan and Villanova square off for a national title. It could cement John Beilein’s and enhance Jay Wright’s. Jalen Brunson could put himself in rarified air as a two-time winner. Mo Wagner could become a Michigan legend.
And one Las Vegas bettor could be a million dollars richer.
A $25,000 bet on the Wolverines to win the NCAA tournament placed the first week of March with +4000 odds will pay $1 million if Michigan wins tonight.
Those on the court will be playing under pressure, but the guy with that ticket will be sweating, too.
