When you look to see who the favorite is in the NCAA tournament, there should be only one team that stands out: the Missouri Tigers.
The Tigers have everything that you want when picking a favorite to win it all this year.
They have a great start being the No. 2 seed in the West Region opening the NCAA tournament in Omaha, Nebraska. Plus, they absolutely destroyed their competition in the Big 12 conference tournament, steamrolling through their three opponents.
Missouri also has the ability to outscore almost any team they play. And finally, they have a deep team that can pick up the slack just in case one of their scorers has a game where they can't make a shot.
All of these reasons will make for the Tigers reaching their first Final Four, with the end result being the school’s first NCAA basketball championship in their long and proud history.
