Final Four betting last season saw all four #1 seeds make the Final Four for the first time in history.
A Final Four has included at least one #1 seed every season except 2006 in the last 20 years. Most of the time in Final Four betting odds, it is either one or two #1 seeds.
Final Four betting has seen a #2 seed make the Final Four in 14 of the last 20 years. Twelve times in Final Four betting history, a #1 and #2 seed have made the Final Four together. As you look at making Final Four odds predictions you should keep in mind that Final Four teams are normally highly respected squads. Last season they were all #1 seeds which mean the sum of the seeds was the lowest ever at four. The highest total ever in Final Four betting was 22, in 2000. That season there were two #8 seeds and a #5 seed. In the last 20 years, the average sum has been just under 10 in Final Four betting.
In 15 of the last 20 years, either a No. 3 or No. 4 seed has made the Final Four in Final Four betting. What this means is that usually a #1 seed makes it, a #2 seed makes it and the #3 or a #4 seed makes it. Oftentimes it is two #1 seeds that make it in Final Four betting.
This year’s Final Four will be focused on the Big East as that has been the best conference in college basketball this season. Final Four odds have had the Big East teams favored for much of the season in regards to winning the NCAA title. North Carolina is the only other team that has really cracked the Big East team’s chances in terms of Final Four betting.
Gamblers that look at Final Four betting should be picking teams that have done well this season on the road. Rarely do teams win in the Final Four if they couldn’t win on the road during the regular season. Top seeds have done very well in the Final Four and big favorites (7 points or more) have done extremely well in Final Four odds in recent seasons.
