Let’s take a look at the matchup in Final Four betting line between Connecticut and Michigan State.
Final Four betting line stats have Connecticut favored by 4 points against Michigan State. The Huskies have been very impressive in the 2009 NCAA Tournament and they have experience, having been on the Final Four betting odds board for the third time in the last 11 years. Connecticut has the best front line in basketball with Hasheem Thabeet leading the way. The Huskies have blocked 25 shots so far in the tournament and Michigan State is going to have trouble scoring points. The good news for the Spartans on the Final Four betting line is that they play great defense too. There is other good news for Michigan State in Final Four betting odds as they are playing in Detroit, which is just about 75 miles from their home campus.
Gamblers are leaning to Michigan State versus the Final Four betting line, perhaps in part because of their home court advantage. The Huskies may not be quite as loaded as North Carolina or as big a favorite in Final Four betting odds, but they have a lot of talent. Hasheem Thabeet is a major force in the middle while A.J. Price is an excellent point guard who can impact the Final Four betting line. Stanley Robinson and Kemba Walker have stepped up during the tournament and Jeff Adrien averages a double-double and he could be very important in terms of the Final Four betting line.
The Big 10’s Player of the Year was Kalin Lucas and he runs the Michigan State offense and will be a major force in regards to the Final Four betting line. He is supported by Goran Suton who has become a force in the middle. Travis Walton is a great defender who can also score and impact the Final Four betting line.
The Huskies are a small favorite on the Final Four betting line against the Spartans and the total of 135 is considered low. It may not be low enough on the Final Four betting line considering these two team’s defenses but compared to the North Carolina-Villanova total of 160 it looks that way.
