For the first time since 2017, we will have a first-time NCAA Division I women’s basketball national champion as the No. 3 LSU Tigers take on the No. 2 Iowa Hawkeyes on Sunday at 3 p.m. at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
Let’s take a look at the odds from DraftKings Sportsbook.
2023 NCAA Women’s Final Four: No. 3 LSU vs. No. 2 Iowa
Spread: Iowa -1.5
Moneyline: Iowa -120, LSU +100
LSU (33-2, 15-1 SEC) came back from being down double digits in the second half to hold off the No. 1 seed Virginia Tech Hokies 79-72 on Saturday. Angel Reese finished with 24 points and 12 rebounds, as the Tigers were able to force 18 turnovers as a team.
The Hawkeyes (31-6, 15-3 Big Ten) pulled one of the biggest upsets in the history of women’s basketball with their 77-73 win over the No. 1 overall South Carolina Gamecocks in the Final Four. Caitlin Clark continued her NCAA Tournament run for the ages with 41 points and eight assists, and the Hawkeyes hung on despite being outrebounded 49-25. Clark has far and away been the best player in the tournament, as she scored or assisted on every Iowa point in the fourth quarter of their stunning victory.
