Butler vs UConn National Final Odds

The Connecticut Huskies are back in the national final and strangely and wonderfully, so is mid-major darling Butler.

The Bulldogs return to the national title game hoping to finish the job they nearly finished against Duke in 2010. Butler returns to the underdog role after beating VCU Saturday but bettors are already backing them at +4 and you can get them at better odds than that at shops such as Sportsbook.ag now.

UConn broke the 0-4 ATS run for Big East schools in defeating Kentucky and they bring the tournament's top player in Kemba Walker.
