Home teams are favored across the board here, which isn't really all that surprising given that fully a third of the NIT field is comprised of teams who won their leagues yet weren't good enough to hear Greg Gumbel say their name on Sunday. Still, expect at least one or two of those teams to pull an upset against a disinterested home team.
