Kentucky vs. Wisconsin betting, odds favor Wildcats over Badgers

 Kentucky is favored again as a lower seed in Final Four betting against No. 2 Wisconsin. The trends favor the Wildcats, but the computer prediction says Badgers.


Kentucky has already knocked off No. 1 seed Wichita State, No. 4 seed Louisville and No. 2 seed Michigan as an eight seed and is looking to add another high-seeded team to the win column.
Wisconsin is making its first appearance in the Final Four since losing to Michigan State back in 2000. The Badgers have proven to be the last team standing out of the Big Ten, currently on a 13-2 SU run that includes a 4-0 ATS record through the tournament.
Computer Prediction: 74-73 Wisconsin
Wisconsin won and covered as a favorite through the first three rounds before upsetting No. 1 seed Arizona in overtime as a 3.5-point underdog.
Kentucky has had the total go OVER in each of its last three games after seeing the UNDER go 10-4 over its previous 14 games. Conversely, the total has gone UNDER in three of Wisconsin's last four games after going OVER in each of its previous four.
Both of these teams are in top form with 4-0 SU and ATS records in tournament play and both offenses have played well with Wisconsin averaging 73.3 PPG and Kentucky averaging 70.8 PPG. READ MORE
