Bet the Final Four “Live” at Sportingbet

April 3, 2008

Sportingbet, the publicly traded UK-based sportsbook, is offering College Basketball Betting fans In-Game “Live” betting for the Final Four and the 2008 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship game.

A feature not offered by most sportsbooks – particularly for major events like the Final Four – Sportingbet’s Live betting allows bettors to ‘watch and wager’ as the game progresses. Sportingbet is available for non-U.S. clients only.

The Final Four, the biggest betting event after the Super Bowl, gets going Saturday with the Memphis Tigers, winners of the South Region, taking on the West Region champion UCLA Bruins in the first matchup at the Alamodome in San Antonio (6:05 pm ET, CBS).

Memphis is a 2-point favorite at Sportingbet.com.

Sportingbet.com is also offering Game Total (Odd or Even) betting for the Memphis-UCLA tilt (Odd -100, Even -110).

The other Final Four game has the Midwest Champion Kansas Jayhawks taking on East Region winner North Carolina Tar Heels (8:45 pm ET, CBS).

The Tar Heels are a 3-point favorite at Sportingbet.com.

An interesting side note to this Final Four matchup is the unique NCAA Tournament history the teams share. North Carolina and Kansas faced each other in the NCAA Tournament title game 51 years ago. North Carolina won the 1957 championship 54-53 in triple overtime, and future NBA legend Wilt Chamberlain, playing for Kansas, was named tournament MVP.

Operating out of regulated and licensed markets since 1998, SportingBet has been listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange since 2001. SportingBet is licensed and regulated by the Alderney Gambling Commission in the Channel Islands off the coast of England.
