Final Four Game One: Connecticut vs Florida from Texas

Gators headed for another title game appearance

Florida is aiming for yet another appearance in the title game when the Gators take the court to face the Huskies on Saturday night in the first game of the Final Four. Florida has not lost a game since December 2, which came against these same Huskies. They have destroyed their competition since then, recording an undefeated season in the SEC en route to a Final Four berth. The Gators are looking for a third national title, all under Billy Donovan.

Huskies working well under Kevin Ollie

Connecticut is just two wins away from its fourth national title in program history, all of which came under former head coach Jim Calhoun. The Huskies have won nine of their last 11 games played, with the two losses coming at the hands of the Louisville Cardinals. Even though they don't have a 30-game winning streak to brag about, they have played incredibly well since the tournament started. Their victory over Florida in December was at the buzzer.

As the Final Four gets underway in Texas, the oddsmakers over at Sportsbook.ag have the Gators as 6.5-point favorites over the Huskies. Even though this is a very favorable line, we think this will be a much closer game from start to finish. We will drop 15 percent of our bankroll on the Gators and the -340 money line as they advance to the national title game.
