New York Times statistician Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight blog has bumped up Florida’s chances of winning it all in the NCAA tournament.

The Gators now have the second-best odds of winning it all behind Louisville, which is given a 32.4 percent chance.

Silver has increased UF’s chances from 13.2 percent at the start to 21.3 percent, noting its margin of victory in earlier games and its “awfully favorable matchup” with Florida Gulf Coast University in the Sweet 16.
