Final Four Odds
The 2009 NCAA Men’s Basketball March Madness Tournament heads into the Final Four round this Saturday, as Michigan State, UCONN, Villanova and North Carolina are all that’s left. Let’s take a look at the odds for all four Final Four teams.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBG Global have made the North Carolina Tar Heels 20/29 favorites to win this year’s March Madness Tournament. The Michigan State Spartans have the next best odds at 33/5, while the Connecticut Huskies (53/20) and Villanova Wildcats (71/10) are the long shots.
No. 2-seeded Michigan State takes on UCONN at 6:07 PM ET in the first game on Saturday. To get to the Final Four, the Spartans knocked off top-seeded Louisville in the Great Eight, which was impressive considering that the Cardinals were one of the favorites to win the entire tournament. Conversely, the Huskies ran through No. 3-seeded Missouri to make the semis.
In the late game on Saturday, No. 3-seeded Villanova takes on top seeded North Carolina at 8:47 PM ET. The Wildcats have had an impressive run thus far, knocking off top-seeded Pittsburgh by two points, as well as No. 2-seeded Duke. The Tar Heels have absolutely run threw every opponent so far in the tournament, including Oklahoma, Gonzaga and LSU, which is why oddsmakers favor UNC to grab this year’s NCAA tournament championship.
