March Madness gambling respect has rapidly grown for UConn as they are back in the Final Four after a memorable run with the March Madness odds.
UConn’s journey to the Final Four at Houston, TX began at Madison Square Garden in New York with the Big East Conference Tournament. The Huskies won and covered 5 consecutive games in a grueling 5 day period to take the championship as they beat DePaul, Georgetown, Pitt, Syracuse, and Louisville in the title game.
Many March Madness betting handicappers had concerns about UConn spending all of their energy at the Big East Tournament and having nothing left for the Big Dance but that has proven to not be the case as UConn has gone 4-0 straight up and 3-1 against the spread in the NCAA Tournament to make the Final Four.
UConn began action in the Big Dance with an 81-52 win over Bucknell as 10 point favorites. Kemba Walker began to demonstrate to casual fans that only bet on March Madness with college basketball that he is an asset to key on as he scored a team best 18 points and also had 12 assists in the win.
UConn then beat fellow Big East rival Cincinnati in the round of 32 by a score of 69-58 as 3.5 point favorites. Walker was sensational with 33 points while Alex Oriakhi had 11 rebounds.
In the Sweet Sixteen UConn had a tough matchup with San Diego State but pulled away in the second half for a 74-67 win and payout as 2 point dogs. Walker continues to impress the nation as he had a whopping 36 points while Oriakhi kept the glass clean with 9 rebounds.
In the Elite Eight UConn faced an outstanding Arizona Wildcats team and scored a breathtaking 65-63 win as 3.5 point favorites as they failed to get the cash. Walker had 20 points and 7 assists while Jeremy Lamb added 19 points.
