NCAA Final Four Basketball 2012 Odds
Basketball betting fans have been on cloud nine as the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament has taken center stage with the 2012 edition of March Madness. Now we are down to the Final Four and the betting odds have been posted at top online sportsbooks everywhere.
Kentucky Opens As Huge Favorites Over Louisville
While the opening round of the 2012 NCAA Basketball Championship was studded with upsets, once it has all shaken out, the big guns are still shooting as we head to the Final Four. Kentucky, who opened the tournament as the overall favorites, have rolled everyone in their path as they have averaged 14 point wins in their first four games of the tournament.
Up next, the Wildcats will face the No. 4 Louisville Cardinals who won the West Region Championship. Kentucky has been installed as a 9-point favorite. While we like Kentucky to be crowned as tournament Champions, that is a monster line for a game this late in the tournament. We expect a Wildcats win, but the Cardinals should keep it within that number.
Buckeyes Open As Slim Favorites Over The Jayhawks
Online sportsbooks are expecting a much closer match-up when a pair of two-seeds meet in the second game of the Final Four contests. This battle features East Region Champion Ohio State Buckeyes as a 2.5 point favorite over the Kansas Jayhawks who won the Midwest Region by defeating the No. 1 ranked North Carolina Tarheels.
We like a Kentucky vs. Ohio State Championship match-up so we will be laying the low line and backing the Buckeyes. All the action goes on Saturday, March 31, 2012, from the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
