I wish I could tell you who to bet on as the Final Four finals in US college basketball take place this weekend in Indianapolis. But even though the field has been narrowed down from 96 to the Final Four, it’s still a tough call. The Kentucky Wildcats, Wisconsin Badgers, Michigan State Spartans and Duke Blue Devils – three number one seeds and one dangerous underdog. Anybody’s game.
The Kentucky Wildcats began as the obvious but the Wisconsin Badgers have looked good in the tourney so far and there is no reason why they couldn’t eliminate their rival early. Michigan State and Duke is a battle between two of the highest-profile coaches in the game. Tom Izzo and Mike Krzyzewski, each capable of taking their boys to victory.
“Our players really know their hoops,” said the sportsbook manager at Intertops Sportsbook. “We’ve had some heavy action on the Spartans to surprise in the South from the word go. Many customers who bet on Michigan State to win it all at odds of +5000 will be facing a nail-biting Easter weekend now!”
“Early upsets mean that none of our customers had a perfect March Madness bracket, but the $25,000 prize we put up will be split between the top 25 entries.”
