2014 NCAA Tournament, Wisconsin vs. Kentucky: Badgers the underdog in Final Four matchup

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Naturally, Vegas has set the Badgers as underdogs heading into the Final Four.

The first round of Final Four odds are out from Las Vegas, and unsurprisingly Wisconsin begins as an underdog to Kentucky. From Bovada Sports Book Manager Kevin Bradley:

"Kentucky remains a popular pick even at 5-2 and if the Wildcats were to win it all would be our worst result from a futures perspective, while UConn or Wisconsin cutting down the nets would be terrific for the book. I expect our bettors to come in heavy on Kentucky -2 and can see that line moving a touch if the action comes in as much as I expect. With Florida -6, I would expect a little more balanced money with the higher spread."

Wisconsin has the longest odds pretty much everywhere you look, which is probably what you'd expect. It'll be interesting to see how much movement there is on the game odds this week, considering Kentucky's only a two-point favorite. Could all the "nobody's talking about the Badgers and that's the way they like it" talk gather enough steam to see some change there? Wouldn't surprise me.
