The VCU Basketball team is no stranger to being the underdog. Even though VCU has defeated all but one team they've faced in the 2011 NCAA Tournament by 10 points or more (yes, including the Kansas Jayhawks), they still aren't receiving much respect from oddsmakers.
Today's betting lines have the Butler Bulldogs favored to beat VCU by three points on Bodog, or by 2.5 points on 5Dimes.com. The over-under total for the game has been set at 134 points on both betting sites.
On the other half of the Final Four bracket, the Kentucky Wildcats are favored to beat the Connecticut Huskies by two points on Bodog and 2.5 points on 5Dimes.com. The oddsmakers clearly expect this game to be more high scoring, as the total has been set at 140.5 on 5Dimes.com and 140 on Bodog.
