Per BetMGM, they have taken two heavy six-figure bets on the Baylor Bears over the Gonzaga Bulldogs for tonight's national championship. The sportsbook took a $330,000 wager on Baylor +4.5 and a $300,000 wager on Baylor's moneyline odds of +165.

Betting Impact:

At other sportsbooks like FanDuel, the betting is much more spread out, as the Bears have taken 50% of the bets and 47% of the handle thus far. BetMGM also reported big wagers on the total, with two $330,000 wagers on both the over and under 159.5. It is an interesting clash of a red-hot Baylor team that dismantled Houston in the Final Four against a Gonzaga team that has clearly been the best team in college basketball all season, but almost stumbled in their Final Four matchup against UCLA.
