The 2014 March Madness Final was almost impossible to predict, but the UConn Huskies and the Kentucky Wildcats are set to define who the best team in College Basketball is, this Monday at 9:15 PM ET at the AT&T Stadium.
UConn not only advanced to the final, but they knocked out the 30 games winning streak the Florida Gators had before Saturday.
“We have been in a lot of dog fights,” Huskies Shabazz Napier said. “We are just an experienced group. We believe in each other and continue to believe in each other. … We are going to win. That is what we do.”
Kentucky advanced one again with late three-pointer shot by Aaron Harrison; the Wildcats eliminated the Wisconsin Badgers in what was a game for the ages.
“You can’t be scared to miss, and you want to be that guy that wants to take the big shots,” Aaron Harrison said. “Coach said he wanted me to take the shot, my teammates have confidence in me, and I just fed off that.”
The Wildcats open as 2.5 favorites in the March Madness Final odds and the game total was set at 134.5 points.
The Huskies are 14-3 ATS in their last 17 NCAA Tournament games, 4-0 ATS in their last four games following an ATS win, and 40-18 ATS in their last 58 games as an underdog.
The Wildcats are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 NCAA Tournament games, and 4-0-1 ATS in their last five neutral site games as a favorite.
