UK, Ohio St stay firm as Final Four Vegas faves

LAS VEGAS (AP) - 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.
