NCAA Championship 2014: Updated Title Odds Going into Final Four
Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

Are you ready to watch the SEC championship, ahem, national championship next Monday night?

Wisconsin and UConn are on incredible runs, but this feels like we are headed for the fourth round of Kentucky vs. Florida. Freshmen vs. seniors. Preseason No. 1 against postseason No. 1. 

It's just too good not to happen, right? 

Well, Tom Izzo's seniors keeping the Izzo streak alive of every one of his senior classes getting to a Final Four seemed too good not to come true, but Shabazz Napier got in the way. And Arizona, the team that was right there with Florida as the best during the regular season, seemed destined for the Final Four, but then Frank Kaminsky happened. 

You can put together scenarios for all four of these teams to win the title, but it's going to be hard to bet against Florida. The following slides break down why you should buy and sell each team, and I put odds on each team's title chances. Talent, experience, depth and efficiency matter. And for the final factor, the eye test was applied. 

Considering I had Michigan State as my national champ, I wouldn't be placing any bets based off my advice. Hey, I'm just hoping for the best story to win out.
