Final Four odds were expected to have at least three #1 seeds and a #2 seed in Memphis. That did not happen as Memphis was upset along with #1 seed Louisville.
Final Four odds now have two #1 seeds, North Carolina and Connecticut, a #2 seed in Michigan State and a #3 seed in Villanova.
Final Four odds could have had three teams from the Big East but Michigan State ruined that plan by upsetting Louisville. The Big East is still well represented though in NCAA Final Four odds and overall in the 2009 NCAA Tournament they have done quite well going 17-5. The Big 12 had also done well up until recently going 11-6. The much maligned Big 10 is 8-6 while the ACC is 7-6.
Heading into Final Four odds action the leading scorer is North Carolina’s Ty Lawson followed by Connecticut’s A.J. Price. Wayne Ellington and Tyler Hansbrough are also in the top five which tells you just how good North Carolina is in NCAA Final Four odds. Dante Cunningham of Villanova is #4 in points as NCAA Final Four odds stats have it.
The leading rebounder of the remaining teams in Final Four odds is Michigan State’s Goran Suton who averages 12 per game. Hasheem Thabeet of Connecticut is right behind at 11.3. Teammate Jeff Adrien is next at 10 per game as Final Four odds numbers indicate followed by Cunningham and Hansbrough.
As we consider Final Four odds the point guards will be very important and Lawson leads the way in assists at 6.7 per game. Michigan State’s Kalin Lucas is next at 5.5 followed by Connecticut’s A.J. Price at 5.3. The two highest scoring teams in Final Four odds also happen to be the favorites. Final Four odds stats show that North Carolina is averaging 88.8 points per game while Connecticut is averaging 87.3. All four teams are solid on defense with Michigan State leading the way at 61.3 points allowed per game as Final Four odds numbers indicate.

Roy Williams of North Carolina is in his sixth Final Four, two with North Carolina and four with Kansas. Tom Izzo is in his fourth Final Four and won a title in 2000.
