Of the bets placed on the game, 65% took Iowa on the spread with a handle of 58%.

The matchup between No. 3 Connecticut and No. 1 Southern California was also in the top three most bet women’s sporting events in BetMGM’s existence. The company was founded in 2018.

Both Elite Eight games saw more betting action than all six of Monday’s NBA games. that both Elite Eight matchups were the most bet women’s basketball games based on bet slips and money wagered. that the Iowa-LSU game was FanDuel’s most bet matchup of the day among all sports, beating out games in the NBA, MLB and NHL.

ESPN reported the Iowa-LSU game was also the “most-bet women’s game of all time” at DraftKings, FanDuel, Caesars and ESPN BET.

Caitlin Clark and the Hawkeyes beat the Tigers 94-87 in a rematch of last year’s national title game. This year’s competition was watched by 12.3 million fans, making it the most-watched women’s college basketball game ever.
