At 18/1 odds to win 2014 Final 4, one would think Virginia looks to be receiving some respect from the bookmakers for a shot at the NCAA title. When we look at the teams favored ahead of Virginia, I would argue that Virginia is NOT receiving enough respect. 18/1 odds could be a gift, especially if they take the ACC Tourney crown this weekend.

Odds To Win 2014 Final 4:

Florida +475

Kansas +600

Arizona +700

Michigan State +800

Wichita State +800

Duke +1000

Louisville +1000

Michigan +1500

Wisconsin +1500

Syracuse +1600

Villanova +1800

Virginia +1800

Creighton +2800

Down the stretch, Virginia has proven to be battle tested winning matchups on the road against Clemson, Notre Dame, Pitt, NC State, GA Tech and VA Tech. Wins at home versus UNC and Syracuse only prove that this team is ready to step up and make a deep run in the 2014 NCAA Tournament.

Virginia has already been kind to their backers this season posting a 17-10 ATS record, along with a 12-14 O/U mark that points to a solid defense. With 4 of their 5 starters averaging 8+ points per game, any player can take this offense where it needs go. Solid depth is a key if you want to make a run in the tourney and Virginia should be able to do just that.
