If the oddsmakers are right, Saturday night will end with Louisville and Michigan in the NCAA tournament final.

The Cardinals are still favored to win the national championship, but if you're bracket is long busted and you're just looking to pull for an underdog, then you can't go wrong with Wichita State.

Louisville is picked over Wichita State by 10½ points, which according to Pregame.com makes the Cardinals the second-biggest favorite in a Final Four game. Duke (-11) against Michigan State in 1999 was the biggest.

Pregame says Louisville has a 53 percent chance to win the title, while Wichita State is the longshot at 7 percent.

In the other semifinal, Michigan is favored over Syracuse, but not by much — just 2 points.
