Let's take a look at a team I think could be a Final Four sleeper in this year's NCAA tournament.

Texas A&M To Make Final Four (+2800, DraftKings)

It's been quite the up-and-down year for the Aggies this season, starting off the year ranked No. 15 on the AP poll and reaching as high as No. 12, but they have fallen off the map since mid-December. They were just 12-8 through the first 20 games, but their odds of making the Final Four seem a bit too long, in my opinion.

It hasn't been a particularly easy season for Texas A&M, having had to face plenty of teams that are now ranked before conference play like FAU, Iowa State, Memphis and Houston.

SEC play hasn't exactly spared them any losses either, as they started just 3-4 in conference play. However, this is a team that I think has a real chance to go on a run in the NCAA tournament. It won't be an easy path, as there are a ton of good teams in the SEC now, but they have the ability and the talent to make a run.

One of the main reasons that I like them to shock a lot of people in March is the play of guard Wade Taylor lV, who has been nothing short of incredible this season. You probably haven't been hearing a lot about his performances because they aren't winning a ton of games, but this guy has been lighting up opposing defenses, unlike anyone in college basketball. Over his last five games, Taylor has three games where he has scored 30+ points and even has a game against Arkansas where he scored a remarkable 41. (Texas A&M lost that game, by the way.)

His play is indicative of the type of sparkplug player that was built for March Madness. He's got that "it" factor that you need to have in the big moments and can score with the best of them. Every Cinderella team has a player just like him who has brought their team much further than anyone could have believed.

No one is impressed with the Aggies right now, to be sure, but if they can sneak into the tournament, I legitimately think they have a shot to make a run.

However, I am going to bet them to make the Final Four instead of winning the whole dance. How often do Cinderella teams win the tournament? Rarely. They might make the Elite Eight or even Final Four, and I think getting 28/1 odds on a team that is disappointing right now but has the tools to make a run is some good value over at DraftKings.
