The story of Saint Peter's to the Sweet 16 has been fascinating. In the first round of the tournament, they were able to beat out the powerhouse of Kentucky who was a number two seed as Saint Peter's entered as a 15.

Just to put into perspective how insane this upset is look at the difference between where Kentucky plays their home games to St. Peter's does:

The run didn't stop there. In the second round, they knocked out the number seven seed in Murray State winning 70-60. Can they make it to the Elite Eight? Here's what the betting public believes:

Where things get interesting is the moneyline. Only 45% of the bets are on Saint Peter's but 73% of the handle is on Saint Peter's at +600. That means a large chunk of the money is on the Cinderella story to continue.

Naturally, at -900 it doesn't really make a ton of sense to bet Purdue on the moneyline. Still, some people do but the money coming in on Saint Peter's is for the big payout.
