Select the text. (Can be live text, no need to create outlines)

Choose Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Warp...

Tick Preview

Then select Bulge from the drop down menu.

Move the top, Bend slider to the left until you are happy. Negative values cause the distortion to work in the opposite direction -- so a reverse bulge.
