It’s going to be hard to top the basketball that was played in the Elite Eight, but the Women’s Final Four is stacked with star power on Friday.

The No. 1 overall team, South Carolina, meets Louisville and star guard Taylor Van Lith at 7 p.m. on ESPN. Defending champion Stanford will face Connecticut at 9:30 p.m. ET to set up Sunday’s national championship game.

Both games will be played at the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN.

Let’s take a look at the odds for each matchup, as well as overall national title odds.

South Carolina vs. Louisville Betting Odds

South Carolina Odds -8.5
Louisville Odds +8.5
Over/Under 119.5
Time 7 p.m. ET
TV ESPN
Odds via BetMGM

This line hasn’t stopped moving. The spread has lengthened a full point from 7.5 to 8.5 on Wednesday. The total dropped from 121.5 to 119.5 thanks in part to a large majority of the bets and handle coming in on the under.

South Carolina, with National Player of the Year favorite Aliyah Boston, is the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament and has received over 70 percent of bets at BetMGM.

Louisville will lean on star guard Taylor Van Lith, whose point totals in the NCAA Tournament so far read: 24, 37, 39, 29 and 22.

Stanford vs. Connecticut Betting Odds

 Stanford Odds -1.5
Connecticut Odds +1.5
Over/Under 128.5
Time 9:30 p.m. ET
TV ESPN
Odds via BetMGM

This spread has flipped from UConn as a 1.5-point favorite to a 1.5-point underdog, which is an unfamiliar place for Geno Auriemma’s team, but the bets and handle are split. Just over 50% of bets are on the Cardinal while 57% of dollars are on the Huskies.

Paige Bueckers is back, and with her UConn is 14-1 straight up this season. Her second-half explosion carried Connecticut to a double-overtime win over NC State in the Elite Eight. But they’ll now be without key role player Dorka Juhasz. The six-foot-five senior is out after suffering a wrist injury against NC State. Her size will be missed against Stanford, specifically Cameron Brink.

Brink leads Stanford with 13 points and 8 rebounds per game. The 6-4 sophomore made a big difference in the Elite Eight against Texas. Brink was scoreless in the first half after missing most of it due to foul trouble, but she scored 10 points in the second half as Stanford stretched a three-point lead to a nine-point win.
