The No. 1 overall seed in the field of 68, the Louisville Cardinals were the consensus pick of the experts and a slight favorite with the oddsmakers when they began their run through the 2013 NCAA Tournament.

Five wins later, Rick Pitino's Cardinals have reached the national championship game. Not surprisingly, they opened as the favorite. According to the Las Vegas Sun, oddsmakers have set the point spread at 4 points.

Boasting the youngest squad in the tournament and the No. 1 offense in the country (via Ken Pomeroy), Michigan will aim to score the upset. After handling the 2-3 zone of Syracuse in their national semifinal, the Wolverines will have to score against the relentless pressure of Louisville.

Can they pull it off? Does the point spread seem good to you?
