The Final Four kicks off this weekend from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas with the matchup between UCONN and Florida at 6:09PM ET. The second game of the weekend will take place at 8:49PM ET when Kentucky battles Wisconsin.

Let's take a look at a couple of lines bettors can take advantage of.

The game between Kentucky and Wisconsin holds the biggest advantage for bettors.  The public is sold on Kentucky right now, while in a lot of ways Wisconsin has been underestimated throughout the tournament.  Wisconsin should be the favorite here, but oddsmakers are taking advantage of public perception in this spot.  The line opened with Kentucky as a 2-point favorite and has been holding strong ever since, despite heavy public action on the Wildcats.  The bigger the stage the bigger advantage for the oddsmakers.

Game 1 between UCONN and Florida holds some value as well.  I believe the oddsmakers have low-balled the Gators here, and bettors should lean to the favorite in this spot.  Florida has chewed through teams in this tournament in Pitt and UCLA, who are every bit as good as UCONN.  The line is sitting at 6.5, and I could easily see the Gators cruising to a double-digit win.  UCONN's road to the Final Four has been on the easy side when compared to Wisconsin and Kentucky. Take advantage of the error on this line and go Gators.
