Kentucky vs. UConn Line

The Kentucky vs. UConn line has opened at Wildcats -2 with Connecticut getting less than 10 percent of the early spread action at BetUS.com, so Gambling911.com highly anticipates this line to move up a bit.  The Huskies were getting close to 80 percent of the money line action however.

Number four-seeded Kentucky knocked off number two-seeded North Carolina on Sunday with a 76-69 win in one of the most anticipated games of the 2011 NCAA Tournament thus far.  Brandon Knight scored 22 points for the Wildcats. 

With the win, Kentucky passes Kansas on the Final Four list, making it for the 14th time, 4th most in history.

"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."

Meanwhile, Connecticut just managed to squeak past Arizona in a 65-63 affair.  UConn came into the Tournament as a number three seed.

With the win, Connecticut advanced to its fourth Final Four.  The Huskies have won nine straight games and are 12-0 this season in tournament games (3-0 Maui, 5-0 Big East, 4-0 NCAA).

"Never did I imagine a team winning nine games in tournament play in 19 days," UConn coach Jim Calhoun said. "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."

Kentucky vs. UConn will be played April 2 at 5:45 pm ET.
