The Florida Gators have been a favorite of bookmakers and bettors since March Madness betting began a couple of weeks ago. But no one expected them to be playing the upstart UConn Huskies in Saturday’s Final Four game.  Intertops Sportsbook oddsmakers expect Florida to win on Saturday and for the Gators to ultimately get past their three worthy opponents to take the Championship title on Monday.
 
“Florida started the tournament as the favorite and is the only number one seed to make the Final Four,” observed an Intertops sportsbook bookmaker.  “After winning all four games so far -- by double digits -- the Gators will be the team to beat in Arlington.  But things are not as clear cut as they might seem at first glance. It could well be that exactly the three teams that stand the most chance of thwarting Florida’s dreams are also traveling to Texas: Wisconsin and Connecticut are the only teams to have beaten them this season and the Kentucky Wildcats came within two points of doing so just three weeks ago.”
 
Early lines see the Gators as a six-point favorite to avenge that defeat to UConn and stop the Huskies’ memorable run in the East Region.
 
“For Connecticut coming in as a decided underdog, having already played Florida and beaten them should give them not only some confidence but also some idea of how to play the Gators,” said Sports Illustrated’s Seth Davis.
 
Intertops Sportsbook has posted odds on both Final Four games this weekend and on who will win the Championship on Monday, April 7th.  Intertops will also be taking live wagers during the games that begin at 6:05 pm and 8:45 pm ET Saturday.
 
Intertops Sportsbook favors the Florida Gators (+110) to win the NCAA Championship on Monday over Kentucky (+250), Wisconsin (+275) and Connecticut (+800).
