How do you pick the Final 4 odds winners when four #1 seeds are involved? Let’s take a look at each game and the Final Four betting odds.
Final 4 odds begin with Memphis a slight favorite over UCLA in Final Four betting odds. The Tigers have the best record of any team in Final 4 odds although they did not play the most difficult schedule. They have a superstar in Derrick Rose and an excellent coach in John Calipari. The weakness of Memphis is their defense and free throw shooting and that could hurt them in Final 4 odds.
UCLA has the most extensive Final 4 odds history. They have won the most titles of any team in history (11). They also have the most recent Final Four experience as they lost to Florida twice in Final 4 odds in recent seasons. The Bruins have a superstar in Kevin Love who may be the best big man in the country. They also have an experienced coach in Ben Howland who gamblers like to follow in Final 4 odds. The Bruins play excellent defense but their weakness could be their overall offense that may not put up enough points to cover Final Four betting odds.
The other game in Final 4 odds has North Carolina facing Kansas. The Tar Heels have Tyler Hansbrough and he is one of the best big game players in the nation. They also have a future hall of fame coach in Roy Williams that knows how to win and is a popular coach for gamblers that look at Final Four betting odds.
The Jayhawks have finally got the monkey off their back and reached the Final Four after missing out the past five years. They have a high powered offense but they do not have a go-to scorer that can take over a game or impact Final 4 odds. They also have a questionable defense that could cost them in Final 4 odds betting.
