When we watch the San Diego State vs Florida Atlantic live stream on Saturday, we'll learn if a great offense is enough to stop an elite defense ... or is it the other way around? Either way, with one of the best cable TV alternatives or the right streaming service, you can watch it (and the championship game) live — and for free.
No. 5-seeded San Diego State made it to the Final Four round of March Madness live streams by doing something three other teams did: knocking out a No. 1-seeded team. Yes, the madness is particularly strong this March, and the Aztecs' path was through the overall top-seeded Alabama, in a seven-point win last Friday.
As for the No.9-ranked Florida Atlantic (aka FAU), the Owls' most Elite Eight action saw them upset the No. 3 Kansas State Wildcats, 79-76.
SD State (-150) are the moneyline favorites according to DraftKings, so you'd need to bet $150 to win $100. FAU +(130) is only a slight underdog. Why is that?
Well, for as strong as FAU guard Johnell Davis' shooting is (17.2 points and 7.8 boards average during the tournament), SD State offers a smothering defense. And, yes, you don't beat No. 1-ranked Alabama and not become a favorite.

It appears that (as was the case in previous years) Kayo Sports is your best bet for Aussie streaming services serving up March Madness live streams.

The Kayo One package costs $25 per month thereafter, and Kayo Basic is $30.
