Let’s take a look at some recent Final Four betting line to see how they can help us predict this year’s results.
Final Four betting line trends tell us that the underdog is 9-4 with three games a pick in the last 16 Final Four betting odds. Eight of those underdogs won outright against the Final Four betting line. While underdogs look good overall in Final Four betting odds you have to be careful since the favorites are 5-3 against the spread in the last four years. That means favorites did very well before the last four seasons in Final Four betting line numbers.
What you really might want to consider when wagering against the Final Four betting line is the money line. If you like the underdog with the points then you should also take them versus the Final Four betting odds money line. In 12 of the last 15 games in which the underdog covered the Final Four betting line, they won the game outright. Last year that worked pretty well since Kansas upset North Carolina outright. The other game had Memphis covering as a favorite against UCLA. But a split makes you money when you take the underdog on the money line. This season is somewhat different since Villanova is a hefty underdog versus North Carolina on the Final Four betting line. If the Wildcats can win though, they would offer a nice payout at better than 3-1.
What about totals in the Final Four betting line? The few seasons the over has gone 8-6 versus the Final Four betting line. Before this recent trend, the under was 5-1 in the previous three years versus the Final Four betting line.
As you consider the Final Four betting line keep in mind that you can bet the side and the total. You can also bet the money line. If you like Villanova or Michigan State then taking them on the money line is definitely something to consider as you bet the Final Four. If you like the total then there are some mixed trends to consider. The total on Connecticut and Michigan State is far lower than the one for Villanova and North Carolina. It is very unusual to see one total at 135 in the Final Four with the other game being at 160. But the variety gives you something to think about as you bet the Final Four.
