NCAA Final odds: Michigan State vs. North Carolina odds on Championship

NCAA Final odds: Michigan State vs. North Carolina odds on Championship After a month full of college basketball, we are now just a day away from the NCAA Basketball Tournament final game, the Championship game Michigan State vs. North Carolina, time to look at the betting odds offered by the sportsbooks. Last night was the Final Four battle, which results in an upset and a game that went by the book. Michigan State, one of the underdogs of the NCAA Tournament Final Four managed to pull through the stalemate of the first half and took the lead on the UConn to hold it to the very end in front of 70+ thousand, most of whom took the short drive from East Lansing to see the Spartans secure a spot at the NCAA Basketball Championship game.

 Now those who bet on the Michigan State to win the NCAA Championship are just one step away from an enormous payout - the Spartans held odds +645 before the game with UConn. But before those bets are graded as winners, the Spartans will have to meet and beat the 2009 NCAA Tournament odds favorite - the North Carolina Tar Heels. North Carolina had little trouble covering odds and spreads last night when they faced Villanova, the underdog of the Final Four. And even though references to their Cinderella year were more than abundant, 83-69 final score shattered the dreams of Villanova to try and make history once more.

 And after checking the NCAA Final odds at the online sports betting websites, Michigan State is also a big underdog to make history on Monday. At the online sportsbook Bookmaker, the NCAA Championship Final game has the North Carolina Tar Heels as -350 odds-on favorite to win the 2009 NCAA Basketball Tournament Championship, while the Michigan State Spartans are holding on long odds +290 to take the championship title to East Lansing.

Meanwhile at another popular online sportsbook, BodogLife, the point spread on the NCAA Final is at -7.5 points chalk North Carolina and this offshore sportsbook is expecting a total of 153 points. Keep in mind that Michigan State is 2-5 against the spread in its last 7 games when playing North Carolina, but North Carolina is 5-2 SU in its last 7 games when playing Michigan State, winning the last game on December 3rd 98-63. North Carolina is also the second highest scoring team in the league at 89.8 points per game and second in rebounds in the league at 39.2.
