Final Four Odds
The Final Four field is set for next weekend. With the four teams remaining, which one is the favorite to win the NCAA Championship?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, North Carolina is the clear favorite to win the title, as the Tar Heels are getting odds of -150 to prevail. Villanova has the next shortest odds at +320 while Oklahoma is listed at +360 to win. Syracuse is the clear longshot, as the Orange have +1200 odds.
The Tar Heels were the lone No. 1 seed to make it to the Final Four and did so by going through arguably the toughest region. UNC will now face No. 10 Syracuse, just the fourth double-digit seed to reach the Final Four. The Orange upset Virginia on Sunday after being down by double figures in the first half. UNC is the clear front runner in this semifinal, as the Heels are opening as a 9-point favorite. They meet in the second of the two semifinals.
The first semifinal has No. 2 Villanova faces another No. 2 in Oklahoma at 6:09PM ET on Saturday. The Wildcats got past the No. 1 overall seed in Kansas on Saturday night to reach the Final Four while Oklahoma disposed of top-seeded Oregon in their regional final. When it comes to this game, oddsmakers have Villanova as a 2-point favorite against the Sooners.
