Kentucky vs. Connecticut Spread

The Kentucky vs. Connecticut spread action had the Huskies getting just shy of 60 percent with a line of +2.5 at SBG Global.  While the earlier Final Four game will feature two Cinderella teams (albeit one, Butler, that is appearing in its second straight Final Four), Kentucky vs. U Conn features two schools that have regularly been featured among the Final Four.  U Conn is the number three seed while Kentucky comes into this game as the number four seed.

On Sunday, Kentucky beat mighty North Carolina by a score of 76-69.   Brandon Knight scored 22 points and fourth-seeded Kentucky advanced to the Final Four for the first time since their 1998 national title. 

"We got Kentucky back," senior center Josh Harrellson said. "A lot of people doubted us. A lot of people really didn't think we'd be the team we are. We really pulled it together as a team, and we're back now."

It wasn’t as easy for the Huskies, who managed to beat Arizona by a mere two points on Saturday (final score:  65-63).

Kemba Walker scored 20 points, freshman Jeremy Lamb added 19 and UConn earned its second Final Four berth in three years

"Never did I imagine a team winning nine games in tournament play in 19 days," Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun said following the win.  "These brothers, these young guys, have just given me a thrill beyond compare. Our march in the past nine games, I haven't experienced anything like this."

In recent head-to-head matchups dating back to 2006, U Conn has the edge going 2-1.  We should note that the one loss was by just three points.
