The one way you can tell if the selection committee goofed up the bracketing of the NCAA Tournament? Vegas is publicly decrying/mocking the outcome.

Or it’s really angry.

And that’s pretty much the case here, according to a story in the Las Vegas Sun. The reporter for the story, Case Keefer, tracked down some oddsmakers to get a litmus test on this year’s field and how it pertains to Vegas lines.
