NCAA Tournament 2012, Final Four Odds: Kansas Jayhawks, Louisville Cardinals Underdogs On Saturday

The Final Four is finally here and just two games separate four teams from a national championship. After seeing two Cinderella teams advance to the last weekend in 2011, this year we have four schools with very rich basketball histories: Kentucky, Louisville, Ohio State and Kansas.

So which teams are the favorites on Saturday evening? According to Odds Shark, Kentucky is a nine-point favorite over Louisville. The Wildcats feature numerous players projected to be drafted in the NBA Lottery, and they are led by Anthony Davis, who is taking home awards for being the nation's best player.

The over/under on points for the matchup is 137.5.
