LAS VEGAS (AP) -Michigan State has a home-state advantage and bettors are getting sentimental about Villanova, but sports books in Nevada still clearly favor North Carolina to win the NCAA tournament.
Oddsmaker Mike Seba of Las Vegas Sports Consultants said Monday that Carolina was a 10-11 favorite to win the title. That means a bettor must gamble $11 to win $10 if the Tar Heels take the championship.
Connecticut is 9-5, while Michigan State and Villanova are each 4-1 to win the title.
Seba says UConn is favored to beat Michigan State by 4 points in their semifinal, even though the teams play in Detroit.
Carolina is favored over Villanova by 7 1/2 points. Seba says Villanova's wins over UCLA and Duke have made the Wildcats popular among bettors.
