Flashes are 2-to-1 favorites to win MAC Tournament

After sweeping rival Akron and winning the regular season championship, the odds are 2-to-1 that Kent State will advance to the NCAA Championship.
Akron's chances are 5-to-2. Here is the rest of the breakdown from

Kent State 2/1 Akron 5/2 Central Michigan 3/1 Miami Ohio 4/1 Buffalo 10/1 Eastern Michigan 15/1 Ohio 20/1 Western Michigan 25/1

I think oddsmakers are giving Central Michigan way too much credit. I don't think the Chips have a legitimate chance to win the tournament. Even if you assume they'll advance to the finals, I'm not sure I would give them 3-to-1 odds against Kent.
Buffalo's odds are too long. They have a decent chance if their shooters get hot. They have beaten every team in their path (Miami, Kent, Akron).
