North Carolina is favored, Syracuse is underdog in Final Four showdown in Houston this weekend.
The maddest season of the sporting year reaches its climax this weekend with America’s top four college hoops teams battling it out for the national championship title in Houston. Just one number one seed has survived the usual carnage of the four Regional tournaments, but does North Carolina now have what it takes to go all the way? Intertops Sportsbook bookmakers see the Tar Heels (+110) on top of the pile, but Villanova (+250) and Oklahoma (+300) are still right there in the mix. Syracuse (+1000), seeded 10 in the Midwest Region, is the obvious underdog, but anything is possible at the NRG Stadium.
“Syracuse has been the big surprise of the tourney so far and we have seen plenty of interest in a semifinal upset win over UNC,” said an Intertops Sportsbook manager. “You never know, we might all be seeing Orange after Monday’s final – it’s March Madness, after all!”
Intertops adds to the hoops excitement by offering its customers $50 free bets for their picks on Facebook. They simply have to post their tip to win the Final Four before the first game gets underway and wager in the sportsbook to qualify. The prize draw will take place after the champion has been crowned on Monday.
The world’s first online sportsbook will also reward its customers for wagering on Monday’s Championship Game with an attractive $100 free bet promotion. Details will be posted on the website on the big day.

No surprise the Gators are getting a lot of betting action as US college basketball betting heats up. At +450 Florida is a clear favorite. But bookmakers say they’ve also seen unusual interest in a couple of March Madness underdog bets this year. Let’s face it, Wisconsin (+2500) and Villanova (+2000) are hardly contendors for the American college basketball title, yet a lot of players have been betting on them. Go figger.
Wisconsin was defeated last weekend by Nebraska so their popularity with bettors could change. But Villanova scored over 60 points in all but one of its 31 games in the regular season so who knows?! One thing we know about March Madness is: anything’s possible.
“Wichita State (+1000) and the Michigan Spartans (+2000) are two teams that players seem to like as well,” said an AllYouBet bookmaker. “Syracuse Orange (+1400) has also seen some action, although the team has struggled recently.”
The Final Four tournament will culminate when the men’s college basketball title is decided April 7th at AT&T Stadium, North Texas.
