How to watch the 2021 NCAA men’s basketball championship game via live stream

The NCAA basketball championship is set to tip off Monday evening and will air on CBS. Here’s a look at some of the streaming options available.

The NCAA men’s basketball tournament is nearing its end and we get arguably the best possible matchup for the national championship game. The final game of the tournament features No. 1 Baylor and No. 1 Gonzaga. While Gonzaga was the wire-to-wire No. 1 team, Baylor spent most of the season as the No. 2 squad. A conference tourney loss to Oklahoma State dropped them to No. 3 in the rankings, but this is pretty close to the top two teams facing off.

The game is set to take place at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Monday, April 5, with tip at 9:20 p.m. ET. CBS will broadcast the game, but there are plenty of ways to live stream if you don’t have a television. Viewers can continue to stream March Madness Live, or users of Paramount+ will also stream the games there.

For March Madness Live, viewers will need to log in through a cable or streaming provider, while Paramount+ requires a subscription to its service or signing up for a free trial. If you don’t have a cable login to access those stations for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the title game.

At DraftKings Sportsbook, the Gonzaga Bulldogs are a 4.5-point favorite.
