Five Teams or The Field: Which Way Would You Go?

The Legend and I bet on many sporting events throughout the year. We do a lot of "Foreigners vs Americans" for the golf Majors, we draft teams in all sports, once the playoffs come around, and when the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament rolls around, we usually do something there too.

Which is where we are (almost) now on the sports calendar.

What The Legend has proposed, is an even money wager which has to be decided on (and teams picked) by this Sunday, March 6th. He's allowing me to pick any 5 teams or take the field, to win the Men's Tournament.

I'm leaning towards taking the field, and having him pick the 5 teams. I'm at best a casual fan of college basketball. I definitely prefer it more to the NBA, and don't really start paying attention to it until we get to March, but the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament is still one of the greatest sporting events on the calendar, every year.

The experts all think this year's tournament is wide open. I was listening to Jay Bilas the other day (which by the way, he only follows 1 person on Twitter, which is kind of weird), and he really likes Kansas. But other than them, he didn't really have any strong feelings for any of the other teams.

So which way would you go- any 5 teams or The Field?
