+Received 2012-13 Preseason Coaches Poll Vote

 

Last year's magical March Madness tournament featured three amazing upsets of No. 2 ranked teams, some even held as favorites.

There's no telling what exactly will take place in the 2013 NCAA tournament. The most accurate analysis and predictions of athletic performances in general lie deep within the occupation of the linesmaker, so this complete list paints a very promising picture of the talent disparity in the NCAA tournament.   

The most surprising analysis is the 25/1 odds given to sixth-ranked N.C. State. Perhaps the conclusion came on the basis that the Wolfpack arrive as the third-best team in the ACC after finishing last season with two impressive tournament wins before losing to Kansas in the regional semifinal. 

Louisville and Kentucky open up the 2012-13 season at 8/1 and 10/1, respectively. The USA Today Coaches Poll listed Indiana as the top-ranked team after receiving 21 first-place votes, with both Louisville and Kentucky receiving five first-place votes each. 

The first game of the 2012-13 NCAA basketball season will be played on November 9 between Bryant University and the No. 1-ranked Indiana Hoosiers in the world-famous Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Indiana.
