Wildcats vs Huskies Elite 8 Odds Battle

With a berth in the Final Four on the line, the Arizona Wildcats take on the Connecticut Huskies Saturday in an Elite 8 matchup, trying to win again as a Madness underdog.

The Wildcats pulled off a shocking 93-77 rout of Duke in the Sweet 16 as a 9.5-point underdog behind 32 points and 13 rebounds from Derrick Williams. The Huskies leaned on a 36-point effort from Kemba Walker to advance past San Diego State 74-67 as a 2-point underdog.

The Huskies are  2-point favorite versus the Wildcats.


Butler vs Florida in Elite 8 Betting

The Butler Bulldogs are back in the Elite 8 again and they'll try to advance even further in the NCAA Tournament Saturday when they take on the Florida Gators.

Elite Eight Betting: Saturday Games

Butler hasn’t been a favorite yet in this year’s NCAA Tournament, even though they nearly upset Duke in last season’s championship game.

And once again it’s the Bulldogs who are 3.5-point underdogs in college hoops betting action at Sportsbook.ag for their Elite Eight matchup with the second-seeded Florida Gators on Saturday.


Bellator 38 Fight Card Betting

Bellator will begin to expand its champions list as eight of the top contenders in the Light Heavyweight division battle for a semifinal spot in the Light Heavyweight tournament later in the season.

UFC Fight Night 24 Preview

MMA bettors get a second consecutive week of action this Saturday when the UFC puts on a stellar card of free fights for UFC Fight Night 24.

Sweet 16 Betting: Friday Games

The Southwest has been the bracket-busting region so far in the Big Dance, with three double-digit seeds advancing to the Sweet 16. Is that good news or bad news for the region's No. 1, the Kansas Jayhawks?

The Jayhawks can look at their remaining road to the Final Four in one of two ways: Smooth sailing through some lower seeds, or a rough road against teams that have already dealt out a few upsets.


Florida State vs VCU Wagering Preview

Either a 10 seed or an 11 seed will make the Elite Eight and this game between Florida State and Virginia Commonwealth will decide which one.

The Seminoles pulled a pair of upsets while VCU needed to win a play-in game as well as pull consecutive upsets to get here.

VCU has looked very tough, but are 4-point underdogs here. At 10/1 to win the Southwest Region at Bovada, they seem great value as beating FSU would lead to a battle with Kansas for the title.


Ohio State Kentucky East Semi Lines

The Kentucky Wildcats are a 6-point underdog to take out top seed Ohio State in the East Region semi final Friday.

This game will be closer than many experts believe with the Wildcats matching up well everywhere except the paint where Jared Sullinger has no equal in college hoops this season.

But Brandon Knight is electric off the dribble for the Wildcats and covering 6 points could be the easiest number on the betting board tonight. The total is around 140 at Bovada and other online sportsbooks.


Kansas Favored Big in Southwest Region

Suddenly, the odds of Kansas moving to the Final Four went through the floor - funny how landing in the Round of 16 with teams seeded 10, 11 and 12 will do that to a No. 1 seed.

Kansas hasn't been tested and some conventional handicapping wisdom says they won't against Richmond either. The Spiders pulled a big upset of Vandy, then dispatched Morehead State to earn this shot.

The Jayhawks are favored by 10.5 points here and a prohibitive favorite at Bovada at 1/3 odds to win the Southwest Rregional crown. The total is overing around 138 points.


Marquette vs North Carolina East Odds

North Carolina looks to put an end to Marquette's Cinderella run when the No. 2 Tar Heels battle 11-seeded Marquette.

UNC is favored by only 4.5 points in this battle, which is small considering the talent imbalance. The Heels are simply better abd deeper than the Eagles.

Marquette doesn't rebound very well, so either they shoot out the lights, or the Tar Heels cover this spread and move to the Elite Eight.
