Legally Betting On The Final Four And 2024 March Madness Champions

On Saturday evening, TBS and TNT will broadcast both 2024 Final Four games to an audience of rabid college basketball fans, sports bettors, and those who still have March Madness brackets that have yet to be busted.

Our favorite online basketball gambling sites are way ahead of this Saturday’s action, with Final Four betting lines for both matchups.

2024 Final Four Betting

Final Four betting sites have taken note of how the UConn Huskies have dominated throughout this year’s tourney. They’ve won each of their four games by over 10 points and are projected to beat the Alabama Crimson Tide by 11.5 or more points in the March Madness semifinals.

(#4) Alabama Crimson Tide vs. (#1) UConn Huskies

  • Point Spread: Alabama +11.5, UConn -11.5
  • Moneyline: Alabama +500, UConn -750
  • Over/Under: 161.5
  • Tips Off At 6:09 PM On TBS/TNT This Saturday

Alabama has had a relatively easy run in 2024, at least for a 4-seed. They did top the number one seed in their bracket, the North Carolina Tarheels, in the Round of 16. However, the Crimson Tide’s other three wins came against a 13-seed, a 12-seed, and a 6-seed.

Does the Tide have enough in the tank to best the defending March Madness champions? We’re thinking no, but they have a great chance at covering the spread.

(#11) North Carolina State Wolfpack vs. (#1) Purdue Boilermakers

  • Point Spread: NC State +9.5, Purdue -9.5
  • Moneyline: NC State +370, Purdue -510
  • Over/Under: 146.0
  • Tips Off At 8:49 PM On TBS/TNT This Saturday

Closing out Saturday’s action is a late-night matchup between an immovable force and the hottest team in the tournament.

After losing the final four games of the 2023-24 regular season, the NC State Wolfpack have known nothing but victory. They didn’t even get a bye in the ACC Conference Tournament, which they won by reeling off five straight wins.

The Wolfpack has followed up their improbable ACC Championship with a Final Four appearance, but college basketball sportsbooks suggest they’ll get blown out by Purdue.

The Boilermakers possess the ultimate difference maker in the form of center Zach Edey, who stands at 7’4″. He has been unstoppable in the paint and could be the only obstacle standing in the way of UConn winning back-to-back titles.

Have a look at Edey’s highlights from Purdue’s Elite 8 contest against the Tennessee Volunteers.

2024 March Madness Championship Game Betting

The NCAA Men’s DI Basketball Championship Game will begin next Monday at 9:20 PM on TBS/TNT. The participating teams will be decided by the results of this Saturday’s Final Four games, but legal online March Madness sportsbooks have posted betting lines for all four potential championship matchups that are taking action right now.

Alabama (#4) vs. Purdue (#1)

  • Point Spread: Alabama +5.5, Purdue -5.5

NC State (#11) vs. Alabama (#4)

  • Point Spread: NC State +5.0, Alabama -5.0

NC State (#11) Connecticut (#1)

  • Point Spread: NC State +15.0, UConn -15.0

Purdue (#1) vs. Connecticut (#1)

  • Point Spread: Purdue +5.0, UConn -5.0 (-115)

Save for the potential 1 vs. 1 matchup, the higher seed is favored in all cases. If Purdue and Connecticut face each other in the March Madness finals, the Huskies will be a 5-point favorite, implying a much closer game than UConn’s previous blowout victories.
