Kentucky(29-8) busted many NCAA Tournament brackets this 2011 March Madness when they won the East Region as a #4 seed. The Wildcats begun their march to the 2011 Final four with a close 59-57 2nd round win over #13 seed Princeton, followed by a 71-63 win over #5 seed West Virginia to get to the Sweet 16. John Calipari’s young Kentucky team then shocked #1 seed and NCAA Tournament favorite Ohio State with a last second jumper by Brandon Knight to win 62-60 to reach the Elite 8 where they took down #2 seed North Carolina 76-79 to reach the Final Four. Kentucky enters the Final Four averaging 75.4 ppg on offense and allowing 63.7 ppg on defense and outrebounds their opponents by a 34.9 to 30.1 margin. Kentucky is just a mediocre 16-15-1 against the vegas spread this season but are a dominant 10-1 straight up on neutral site games and have won their last 10 games overall dating back to February 26th.
Uconn(30-9) enters the 2011 Final Four on a 9 game winning streak that began back on March 8th when they won the 1st of 5 consecutive games over 5 days to shock the Big East Conference by winning the Big East Postseason Tournament. That run was just the beginning of the Huskies domination this month as they went on to dominate #14 seed Bucknell 81-52 in their NCAA Tournament opener, followed by a 69-58 win over Big East rival Cincinnati to reach the Sweet 16. The Huskies then defeated #2 seed San Diego St 74-67 to reach the Elite 8 where they eventually withstood a couple last second 3 point attempts by #5 seed Arizona to reach the Final Four with a 65-63 victory. Uconn enters the Final Four averaging 73.3 ppg offensively and giving up just 65.7 ppg defensively, while winning the rebounding battle 35.7 to 31.2 on average this season. Uconn has been a force to be reckoned with on neutral site games this season as they’ve yet to be beaten and are 12-0 on the season in those games. Better yet, Uconn has been a cash machine for their sports betting backers this College Basketball season going an impressive 21-12 against the vegas odds.
Now, let’s get down to what Final Four betting enthusiasts really want to know. Who will cover the spread? Well, vegas oddsmakers have installed Kentucky a -2 point favorite(check out the latest odds at BetUS Sportsbook) with the game total set at over/under 140 points at Las Vegas Hilton Sportsbook in Las Vegas. However, that line is somewhat surprising considering the fact that Uconn dominated Kentucky with a 84-67 win earlier this season at the Maui Invitational Tournament back on November, 24th, 2010 in Hawaii. It appears that the vegas linemakers have the wrong team favored in this game as Uconn has battled and won against 8 NCAA Tournament teams in a row dating back to the Big East Tournament and are led by the best player left in the Final Four with the sensational Kemba Walker carrying Jim Calhoun’s young Huskies squad. The smart money should be on Uconn as a +2 point underdog and Jim Calhoun should reach the National Championship Game monday night to have a chance at a 3rd National Championship in his Hall of Fame coaching career.
