The Wisconsin Badgers are in the Final Four for the second consecutive year, and for the second consecutive year they will be battling the Kentucky Wildcats. There will be a lot of talk about Kentucky going undefeated this week, seeing as they have reached the Final Four with an unblemished 38-0 record, and Vegas sees them as the prohibitive favorite.
Odds to Win the 2015 NCAA Championship
Michigan State 8/1
Duke is obviously the second favorite to win it all, seeing as the Blue Devils have the "easier" of the two matchups against No. 7 seed Michigan State... although I think it's pretty clear by now that seeds don't matter when it comes to Tom Izzo in March.
There are odds on the exact matchup that will be played on Monday night, and unfortunately both Badger iterations are the least likely to happen, according to Bovada. However, Wisconsin would be favored over Michigan State if it came down to that bloodbath.

Bovada also has odds out on who will likely win the tournament's most outstanding player award. Frank Kaminsky and Sam Dekker are the only Badgers listed, although Zak Showalter's contributions off the bench should not be ignored by the national media much longer!
