The Final Four is set. The games begin Saturday evening in San Antonio.

The contrast of matchups is interesting. In one semifinal, you have a major Cinderella in Loyola-Chicago against a team in Michigan that hasn't lost since early February.

The second semifinal features a pair of No. 1 seeds, Villanova and Kansas. Both teams are on fire as of late.

Who are you taking?

OddsShark's computer model has put out an early score prediction for the game. It likes Villanova.

Here is OddsShark's Score Prediction for Villanova-Kansas.

The last two times these teams met in the NCAA Tournament, the winner went on to win the national championship. Kansas beat Villanova in the Sweet 16 in 2008, and ‘Nova returned the favor in the Elite Eight two years ago.

Kansas and Villanova will tip off at approximately 8:49 p.m. ET on TBS. The first game between Michigan and Loyola-Chicago will begin at 6:09 p.m. ET.

Should be fun.
