March 26, 2014 // Franchising.com // PLANO, TEXAS - Just days after three "winged" teams, Louisville, Daytona and Iowa State, fought their way to the round of 16 in this year's college basketball championship tournament, prominent sports analyst and America's leading handicapper Danny Sheridan has placed 4:1 odds that one of those teams will cut the nets down in Dallas. If those favorable odds hold true, America will be rewarded with a carryout 4-count sample of free kitchen-fried WingStreet wings from Pizza Hut between 1-4 p.m. local time (while supplies last; offer details found at www.pizzahut.com/wingedmascotgiveaway.html).
Sheridan's "winged" team championship odds are the first he has placed for this round of the tournament and admittedly one of the more uncommon lines he's ever released.
"I've followed countless brand offers over the years and rarely do they offer consumers a realistic chance at redemption," said Sheridan. "At 4:1 this late in tournament, I'd say America has a real chance at free WingStreet wings from Pizza Hut."
The three winged teams remaining in the tournament include last year's champ, Louisville, which Sheridan has set the best odds of winning free wings for America at 4:1, as well as the talented squad from Ames, Iowa, Iowa State, at 50:1 and the underdog from Dayton at 100:1.
WingStreet wings are kitchen-fried and tossed with a choice of one of eight sauces to give customers a wing-joint-quality experience from America's largest pizza chain. The sauce flavors include: Buffalo Mild, Buffalo Medium, Buffalo Burnin' Hot, Spicy Asian, Spicy BBQ, Honey BBQ, Lemon Pepper and Garlic Parmesan. Consumers can also choose from several varieties of wings including Traditional, Bone-Out or Crispy Bone-In.
