The complete 2013 NCAA Tournament field was announced on Selection Sunday and it is now subject to countless hours of analysis until tip-off of the opening game. While you are scanning your bracket and thinking over the 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 (9.2 quintillion) bracket possibilities, know that only two lower seeds – (11) Minnesota over (6) UCLA and (9) Missouri over (8) Colorado State — are favored.

How about the odds to win it all? As you would expect, Vegas has already handicapped the field and placed odds on the potential winners. Take these into consideration when filling out your bracket and you could dominate your office pool.
