The Michigan State Spartans have not yet started the Big Ten Tournament, but they are the co-favorites on the most recent odds to win the NCAA Tournament.
One of the reasons Michigan State (+500) has moved back to the top of the heap is their very easy win over Ohio State this past Saturday. They're going to get a top-two seed in the NCAA Tournament as long as they win at least one game in the Big Ten Tournament.

The Academy Awards are just a few days away, and the conversations about who'll win the Oscars have ramped up. The main storyline is focused around the Best Actor Award and whether or not Leonardo DiCaprio will finally win his first golden statue.
There is a big sentimental push to urge the Academy to select him for an Oscar, and the betting odds reflect that everyone is behind him. The talented actor is the clear-cut favorite (-5000), which is about as big of a favorite as you'll see in this situation.
