Kentucky-ND Elite Eight spread released in middle of Sweet 16 game
In a move to potentially capitalize on Kentucky-mania as the Wildcats obliterated Sweet 16 opponent West Virginia in the first half, Sportsbook opened Kentucky as 10.5-point favorites over Notre Dame in Saturday's Elite Eight round.
The only unusual thing about it? Kentucky hadn't officially won yet. In fact, Sportsbook posted the line as West Virginia was just coming out of halftime.
The game's line immediately bumped up to -11 on early Kentucky money.
The Wildcats will tip off against Notre Dame at 8:49 p.m. EST Saturday on TBS for a chance to go the Final Four.
