Barkley Underdog to Pick Final 4 Matches

He’s got a big mouth, a big belly and a big ego and he’s a big underdog as a handicapper to pick this weekend’s three college basketball championship games.

Charles Barkley loves to bet and loves to talk and one sportsbook has posted 5/1 odds that he can’t pick all three games correctly. [ See dozens of fun Madness prop odds and pocket their best bonus ever – 100% deposit boost! – at Bovada ]

“Love him or hate him, he adds some spice and humor to the telecasts and he’s not afraid to voice an opinion,” said Mark Presley of OddsShark.com. “I personally think he might go 0-for-3 in his picks as this hasn’t exactly been the most predictable March Madness in recent history so my Charles Barkley odds would be much higher.”

Bovada also made Kentucky the favorite to win it all and installed Kentucky’s Brandon Knight and UConn’s Kemba Walker as co-favorites to win the MOP award. A Kentucky vs Butler matchup is the favored position in predicting the final at +190 odds (bet $100 and win $190).

And considering how many games went down to the final shot in this tournament, a 12/1 line on 'will either game be decided by a buzzer beater' seems a bit high.

Will Charles Barkley correctly pick the winner in all of the last 3 games of the NCAA Tournament?
Yes 5-1
