UConn Odds

The UConn Huskies were not the favorites to win the 2009 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship early on, but sports bettors overwhelmingly believe that Connecticut will easily cover the -4 spread versus Michigan State Saturday.

"Nearly 85 percent of the action is going UConn's way in this game," observed Don Shapiro of Gambling911.com.  "The money line action was relatively split."

Of the two games being played over the weekend, Connecticut was the most bet on team by a long shot.

"Villanova versus North Carolina was getting nearly even action with the Tar Heels a -7 favorite," said Shapiro.  "Villanova was actually getting about 60 percent of the money line action to win outright though."

On the money line, Villanova would pay out nearly $270 for every $100 bet at online gambling establishments like BetUS.com.

It was a similar story at the Las Vegas sportsbooks.

"By looking at the early ticket count, I think the general public is focusing in and targeting UConn and Villanova," Las Vegas Hilton sports book director Jay Kornegay said. "The entire tournament has been a love affair with the Big East, and this Final Four is no different."

UFC Odds – UFC Fight Night: Figueiredo vs. Benavidez 2

The top two contenders in the UFC flyweight division square off in a rematch for the vacant title in the headliner event of UFC Fight Night: Figueiredo vs. Benavidez 2. It was back at the end of February when Deiveson Figueiredo (18-1) and Joseph Benavidez (28-6) met for the first time with the vacant flyweight belt at stake. Figueiredo missed weight for that match and was ineligible to win the belt. The fight went on with Figueiredo getting a second-round stoppage win. However, no champion for the division was crowned.

The PGA Tour is thriving after the season restart following the COVID shutdown. Now the Tour gets its top draw back on the course with Tiger Woods scheduled to peg it up for the first time since February at the Memorial Tournament. Woods has won this event a record five times and has been cautious about his return. The inactivity – save for a charity stint in May – and a stellar cast of characters dropped Tiger well down the odds board.
