The public will probably back the Tar Heels minus the points in NCAA Final betting but Michigan State has some advantages including the home court.
NCAA Final odds are high on North Carolina simply because they are the best team in the country. They really haven’t even been tested in the NCAA Tournament so far, winning by double-digits in all five games. North Carolina has as much talent as any NCAA Final odds team in recent memory with guards Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington in addition to forward Tyler Hansbrough. NCAA Final odds also list North Carolina as a solid favorite since they defeated Michigan State on this same court 98-63 back in December.
NCAA Final odds history doesn’t really support laying the big number with North Carolina. In the last decade only one team was favored by more than North Carolina as Connecticut laid 9.5 points in 1999 against Duke and they did not cover the NCAA Final betting pointspread.
If you are looking at Michigan State in NCAA Final odds there are some positives. Playing at Ford Field in Detroit is a huge plus in NCAA Final betting. The crowd back in December was nothing compared to what it will be like on Monday. NCAA Final odds information tells us that the Spartans have a great backcourt with Kalin Lucas and Travis Walton and they have Goran Suton in the middle.
