FanDuel has released numbers for the sides of all four potential matchups in Monday’s finals of the 2023 NCAA Tournament.
Since UConn already has a minus next to its name in the updated future odds, we know that Dan Hurley’s team will be favored vs. the winner of FAU and San Diego St if the Huskies advance past Miami. As of Tuesday afternoon, FanDuel had UConn as a 6.5-point ‘chalk’ at a -104 price vs. FAU (+6.5 at a -118 price).
The Owls go into Saturday’s matchup vs. San Diego St. as small underdogs, and they’re accustomed to this role in recent weeks. In fact, they’re 6-2 both straight up and against the spread in eight games as underdogs this season.
UConn is listed as a 4.5-point favorite (at -120 odds) vs. San Diego St. (+4.5 at -102 odds).
Miami, a 5.5-point underdog vs. UConn on Saturday, has an unbelievable 26-4-1 spread record with 18 outright victories in its last 31 games as ‘dogs. They’re currently 0.5-point ‘dogs if they face the Aztecs on Monday.
Jim Larranaga’s squad is a 1.5-point favorite (-105 odds) vs. FAU (+1.5, -115).
FanDuel also has odds out for the NCAAT’s Most Outstanding Player. UConn’s Adama Sanogo is the +270 ‘chalk,’ followed by teammate Jordan Hawkins and his +330 odds.
Miami’s Isaiah Wong, the ACC Player of the Year, has +1200 (or 12/1) odds. Fresh off his game-winning free throw to beat Creighton in the Elite Eight, San Diego St. point guard Darrion Trammell shared 12/1 odds with Wong.
The rest of the board looks like this: FAU’s Johnell Davis (14/1), SDS’s Matt Bradley (15/1), UConn’s Andre Jackson Jr. (15/1), SDS’s Lamont Butler (15/1), UM’s Jordan Miller (19/1), FAU’s Alijah Martin (21/1), UM’s Nijel Pack (24/1), FAU’s Vladislav Goldin (26/1), SDS’s Jaedon Lee (34/1), SDS’s Nathan Mensah (34/1), UM’s Norchad Omier (42/1), UConn’s Tristen Newton (50/1), UConn’s Alex Karaban (50/1), UM’s Wooga Poplar (80/1) and FAU’s Nick Boyd (90/1).
