A Final Four loaded with three traditional powers and one shocking underdog gets underway in the Alamodome in San Antonio on Saturday evening. Villanova is a 1/1 sportsbook favorite to win it all, followed by Michigan at 5/2, Kansas at 3/1 and Loyola-Chicago at 12/1.
Before making any kind of pick on the Final Four, you need to see what our advanced computer model has to say. This model, which simulates every single game 10,000 times, enters the Final Four on a blistering 8-1 run on its NCAA Tournament picks.
We can tell you the model is skeptical of Loyola's chances of continuing its Cinderella run. Even though the Ramblers are getting just 12/1 odds to win it all, the model says those odds don't offer strong value. Their implied probability of winning it all is 8.3 percent, but they only win the title in 3.6 percent of our simulations.
The model, however, has identified one Final Four team that is a tremendous value to win it all, saying it wins much more frequently in simulations than Vegas odds would imply. So which team should you back and who all should you fade? Join SportsLine here to see the absolute best betting value to cut down the nets in San Antonio, all from an unbiased computer model on an 8-1 run on its NCAA Tournament picks.
