With a few hours before tip off, the 2013 Final Four Point Spreads have become very active. Based on the line movement this week, it looks like the dogs are getting a little more action then the favorites.
Wichita State vs Louisville starts at 6:10 PM EST in the first Semifinal match up. The Cardinals are -10 point favorites against the Shockers but this line opened at -10.5 points at CarbonSports.ag last Sunday. The Total is set at OVER/UNDER 133.5 points. The money lines are showing Louisville a hefty -575 odds while Wichita State is a +435 odds underdog. I think that Louisville gets the win straight up, but does not cover. I would stay away from the Cardinals money line however because its too pricey in my opinion. Try grabbing the Shockers +10.
Michigan vs Syracuse starts at 8:50 PM EST in the second Semifinal match up. The Wolverines are -1.5 point favorites against the Orange but this line opened -2.5 points at CarbonSports.ag last Sunday. The Total is set at OVER/UNDER 129.5 points. The money lines are showing Michigan -125 odds and Syracuse +105 odds. This is a tough game to handicap in my opinion. Both teams are playing great right now but I have to go with the dog in this one. I would stay away from the money line though and just grab the spread with Syracuse +1.5 points.
One thing I would suggest every sports bettor does immediately is to snag some futures odds on Syracuse at +400 odds and Michigan at +325 odds to win the NCAA Tournament. One of these teams will face Louisville and their odds will be much short in the Finals.
The winners of the Semifinals will take each other on Monday night for the 2013 Men’s NCAA Basketball National Championship.
