Florida was the #1 ranked team in the nation heading into "March Madness", so it's no surprise that they are still the current favorites to win the tournament.

Kentucky, which is the lowest ranked team still alive in the tournament, has the next best odds of winning. Many people felt that Kentucky was severely under-ranked heading into this tournament and they have proven to have been correct.

Here are the current betting odds for all four teams:

Florida Gators, +110
Kentucky Wildcats, +250
Wisconsin Badgers, +275
Connecticut Huskies, +900

The Gators are a little worse than even money to win.

Finally, here are the odds for the two individual semi-final games:

Florida Gators, -300 vs Connecticut Huskies, +250
Wisconsin Badgers, +110 vs Kentucky Wildcats, -130

The Gators are 6 1/2 point favorites over the Huskies, while the Wildcats are small 2 point favorites over the Badgers.
