The Kentucky Wildcats are on a 10-0 SU and 8-1-1 ATS run on the March Madness betting lines at the NCAA Tournament as they look to knock off the Wisconsin Badgers in their Final Four odds matchup on Saturday night in Arlington.
And the oddsmakers are on Kentucky's side for the contest, with Bovada listing them as 2-point favorites on their March Madness odds for the game. The OddsShark computer, however, has Wisconsin grabbing a slim 74-73 win.
And while the Wildcats have been hot at the NCAA Tournament lately, the Badgers have been a lucrative betting option at March Madness recently as well. Wisconsin is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 tournament games, and they're 6-2 both SU and ATS in their last eight games as the underdog.
No. 8 Kentucky knocked out Midwest No. 2 Michigan last week, and as they go up against West No. 2 Wisconsin on Saturday they're 5-1 ATS in their last six games against No. 2 seeds. The Wildcats are also 7-2 SU in their last nine Final Four games.
Kentucky is 4-0 ATS on the March Madness odds at the Big Dance so far this month, covering a 6-point spread against Kansas State and a 2.5-point spread against Michigan. The Wildcats also upset Wichita State 78-76 as a 4.5-point underdog on the March Madness betting lines and Louisville 74-69 as a 4.5-point underdog.
Wisconsin is 4-0 ATS in March Madness betting this month as well, covering the posted spread against each of American, Oregon, and Baylor in their first three games of the NCAA Tournament and then beating Arizona 64-63 as a 3.5-point underdog on the betting odds in the Elite Eight.
