Updated odds for the Final Four keep Kentucky as the team to beat, while the Buckeyes aren’t far behind.

The guys at Sportsbook.com place the Wildcats (36-2) at 5:7 to cut down the nets next Monday, while the Buckeyes are at 13:5. Kansas is 5:1 and Louisville is 10:1.

Before the tournament began, Sportsbook.com listed the Wildcats at 5:1, while Ohio State was 7:1. Louisville was 15:1 and Kansas was last among the four at 30:1. North Carolina received their best odds at 4:1.

The four have mixed records against the spread during the tournament, too.

Ryan Greene writes over at The Dagger that Kentucky covered the spread Sunday against Baylor, the third consecutive game it’s done so. Louisville covered the spread for the eighth straight game. Kansas is just 2-2 against the spread in the tournament, while Ohio State is 3-1 against it.
