Georgia Underdogs to UW Huskies in East

Washington brings flamboyant Isaiah Thomas to the tournament as the 7 seed, a factor many bettors feel is the difference in an otherwise close matchup with No. 10 Georgia.

This East Region battle sees the Huskies favored by 5 points. But it's the Travis Leslie vs Washington's Thomas battle at the guard position that makes this a potentially terrific game to watch and bet on.

The Huskies bring a 23-10 record and the nation's fourth-highest-scoring offense against the 21-11 Bulldogs. Washington was an upset winner in the Pac 10.
