LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas casinos have tabbed Kentucky the latest favorite in an NCAA tournament full of upsets, and are hoping that Virginia Commonwealth ends its improbable run without a title.

The Glantz-Culver line made Kentucky a 2-point favorite to win its semifinal game against Connecticut on Saturday night, and Butler a 21/2;-point favorite over Virginia Commonwealth.

"Kentucky probably has a better (starting) five than UConn has," said Mike Colbert, race and sports director for Cantor Gaming.
