Final Four Betting Guide
The game between Villanova Wildcats and Kansas Jayhawks would be a close match in normal circumstances. However, Justin Moore is out due to a torn Achilles. As a result, the Jayhawks are the favorite to win the first semifinal game of March Madness.
Villanova enjoys a slow game. Thus, losing their top scorer will significantly affect their chances of winning. On the other hand, the Jayhawks have a fast-paced offense. However, they were inconsistent throughout the tournament. If the Jayhawks go outscoring, the Wildcats will have difficulty keeping up. For this matchup, pick Kansas to win by a large margin.
In the next semifinal matchup, Coach K’s squad will face North Carolina. The Blue Devils are the favorites to advance to the final game. However, the Tar Heels might rain on Coach K’s parade. According to sports handicapping reports, both teams’ offenses are deadly. Therefore, you should consider betting over 151 points in totals. Also, we recommend betting on the Tar Heels at +162.
