MyBookie NCAAB | Online College Basketball Betting

While we are accustomed to seeing upsets happen in the March Madness tournament, the reality is that the top teams are the ones who usually make it to the Final Four or into the National Championship. In fact, the lowest seeded team to win the championship was Villanova, who were a #8 seed back in the mid-80s. There have been some lower seeds that have gone to the Final Four, and the NC State Wolfpack are now tied as the lowest seeded team to make it to this point after a truly unbelievable run. History is certainly not on their side, though, and they are about to go against a Purdue Boilermakers team that looks like a real powerhouse. It is Purdue that comes into this one as a 9 ½ point favorite, with the point total set at 146. Let’s take a closer look at the NCAAB Odds and the East region Final Four matchup.

Why bet on the NC State Wolfpack

To say that this has been an improbable run for the Wolfpack is perhaps understating things. Generally speaking, heading into the tournament as the #11 seed and getting past Round 1 is seen as a victory by most. Their 13-point win over Texas Tech in Round 1 was a stunner, but they caught some luck by facing another surprise team, Oakland, in Round 2, winning that on 79-73. They then had to go against #2 Marquette in the Sweet 16, winning by 9 before scoring an unbelievable double-digit win over Duke in the Elite 8. Their win streak, going back to the regular season, is now at 9 games, plus they have covered the spread in 7 of their last 8 overall. They are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 as an underdog. In 15 of their last 17 games played on Saturday, the point total has gone OVER.

Why bet on the Purdue Boilermakers

After spending some time as the #1 team in the nation during the regular season, there was a definite sense that the Purdue Boilermakers might be poised for greatness this year. Losing in the Big Ten Tournament was not part of the plan, but they eased into March Madness with a comfortable win over Grambling in the opening round. In Round 2, they absolutely destroyed Utah State, winning by 40+ points, after which they took out #5 Gonzaga in another double-digit win. Their toughest game came in the Elite 8 against #2 Tennessee, but they ground out a 72-66 win in that one. Purdue has now covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 games, winning 10 of their last 11 straight up. They have covered in 4 of their last 6 games when starting as the favorite. In terms of the point total, the UNDER has hit in 4 of their last 6 overall.

Expert Pick and Score Prediction

This looks to be a mismatch of epic proportions, but it’s also a game that Purdue cannot afford to take too lightly. With so much at stake, I don’t believe they will do that. I think they will win this one going away, covering the spread in the process.
