Vegas likes Cats to win NCAA title

Sin City casinos are sticking with Kentucky and Ohio State as Final Four favorites and still think the Wildcats have by far the best shot of winning the NCAA title.

Gambling expert RJ Bell of Pregame.com told The Associated Press on Monday that odds put out by Nevada casinos show they think Kentucky - the No. 1 seed overall in the tournament - has a better than 50 percent shot at the title, despite needing to win two more games.

Bell says casinos believe Ohio State has a 25 percent chance, Kansas a 15 percent chance and Louisville an 8 percent chance.

Oddsmaker Mike Colbert of Cantor Gaming made Kentucky a 9.5-point favorite over Louisville and Ohio State a 3-point favorite over Kansas for Saturday's semifinals.
