Second Final Four Matchup | The Basics of the Game

The Alabama Crimson Tide come into the game with a 25-11 record on the season. The Crimson Tide were the 4th seed in the West Region, and downed Clemson to get to this game.

For the Connecticut Huskies, they are the top seed overall in the NCAA Tournament. The Huskies won the East Region with a blowout win over Illinois on Saturday. The Huskies come into this game with an 11 game winning streak, and a 35-3 record overall.

The Connecticut Huskies are -11.5 in this game over Alabama. The total for this affair is set at 160.5.


Hurley Continues to Guide as Head Coach | Playing all the Way to the Title

Under Dan Hurley’s guidance, the Connecticut Huskies have been on one of the most impressive winning streak in NCAA Tournament history. The streak for this season has gone since late February, when they suffered a road loss against Creighton. Since then, the Huskies have won 11 straight games, with only two of those games proving to be competitive. 

Their victory against Illinois showcased their dominance, as they surged from a tied score of 22-22 to a commanding 52-22 lead midway through the second half.

Donovan Clingan played a massive  role in the win, delivering five blocked shots. Despite ranking fourth on the team in scoring with 12.9 points per game, Clingan has also been a force on the boards, averaging 7.5 rebounds per game. In the NCAA Tournament, Clingan’s performances have been notable, with point totals of 19, 14, 8, and 22, accompanied by rebounding figures of 8, 14, 8, and 10, respectively.

Tristen Newton has been the leading scorer for the Huskies this season, but his contribution was not required in the most recent game, where he played 31 minutes but managed only 5 points, going 0 for 6 from the field. His standout performance came in the second round against Northwestern, where he recorded 10 assists.


Crimson Tide Looking to Run | They have the Offensive Power

On the other hand, the Alabama Crimson Tide show off the title of the highest-scoring team in college basketball, averaging 90.6 points per game. Throughout the NCAA Tournament, they have shown their offensive power, scoring 109, 72, and back to back games 89 points in their games. Also, their defense has also shown big time improvement, as they allowed 100+ twice late in the season.

Mark Sears is the anchor of Alabama’s offense, showing off elite scoring abilities. In the wins over North Carolina and Clemson, Sears proved his ability, scoring 18 and 23 points respectively, with an impressive shooting performance in the most recent game where he knocked down 7 three-pointers. Sears currently averages 24.7 points per game in the NCAA Tournament.

Alabama’s season has been fun, but up and down a bit, marked by high-scoring wins in their first games against Morehead State, South Alabama Indiana State, and South Alabama, followed by early-season losses against tough tournament type opponents such as Ohio State, Clemson, Purdue, Creighton, and Arizona.


Alabama vs. UConn Final Pick | Huskies Continue to Roll

The Huskies have been outstanding; with ten straight wins by double digits points in the NCAA Tournament. That is just incredible. Let’s make it 11 in a row. Alabama is amazingly, +11.5 and many do not think they can cover that spread. The Huskies just wear you down, then beat you down. More of that on Saturday as the Huskies win this game by 13. Our final bet for the game is the UConn Huskies -11.5 over the Alabama Crimson Tide. Our final score prediction is UConn 79-66 over the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday!

2022 March Madness Odds: Duke and Kansas Betting Favorites for Final Four Round

Previous Betting News

The Duke Blue Devils and Kansas Jayhawks enter this season’s Final Four the top choices on the board to win the title. Duke is a +160 choice while the Jayhawks are at +180. But will either team move on from their respective semifinal matches? Will the Blue Devils beat the rival Tar Heels? Will the Jayhawks take down the Villanova Wildcats? Check out March Madness Odds, analysis, and free picks for each Final Four Semifinal contest.

Favorites Duke and Kansas Search for a Monday Night Showdown

2022 Final Four

When: Saturday, April 2
Where: Caesars Superdome, New Orleans, LA

Game 1 – Villanova Wildcats vs Kansas Jayhawks

When: Saturday, April 2 at 6:09 pm ET
Spread Odds: Kansas -4 ½
Moneyline Odds: Villanova +170 / Kansas -200
Total Odds: Over 133 -110 / Under 133 -110

The way Kansas thoroughly dominated Miami had to impress. The Jayhawks locked down on the Hurricanes in the second half, holding Miami to 15 points on their way to a 76-50 win.

But although Kansas looked great when taking their Elite Eight game, we shouldn’t read too much into the victory. The Jayhawks were down by 6 points at halftime. Not only that, but Miami was the 10-seed in the region and only plays seven.

So no wonder the Hurricanes tired in the second half. On Saturday, Kansas plays a much tougher opponent.

Villanova had to beat the Houston Cougars to win their Elite Eight match. Jay Wright’s squad suffered a horrendous shooting night, but their defense was so magnificent, it didn’t matter.

Nova can run with the Jayhawks if Kansas prefers. Or Villanova will play defense and force Rock Chalk into tough shots. No matter anyway we look at it, Nova is an overlay on both the against the spread line and the moneyline.

So Wright’s squad covers. But can Villanova beat Kansas straight up? For sure, the Wildcats can. The last couple of times Villanova made the Final Four, they went on to win the title. Nova knocks out the lone remaining 1-seed.

Final Four Pick: Villanova +170

Game 2 – North Carolina Tar Heels vs Duke Blue Devils

When: Saturday, April 2 at 8:49 pm ET
Spread Odds: Duke -4
Moneyline Odds: North Carolina +160 / Duke -190
Total Odds: Over 151 -110 / Under 151 -110

This is, essentially, an ACC rubber match between a couple of teams that beat each other during the regular season. So Duke is a massive underlay both against the spread and on the moneyline.

Sure, Duke dominated the Tar Heels in the first match. But UNC won the second game and the second contest in a 2-game series is always the more important. The team that wins the second game made the required adjustments.

No doubt, Duke is a strong team. But the Blue Devils don’t match up well with the Tar Heels. More importantly, North Carolina beat Baylor and UCLA, the 1-seed and 4-seed in their region, while Duke didn’t have to face Gonzaga on their way to the Final Four.

North Carolina has three players that can take over this game, forward Armando Bacot and either of the starting guards, Caleb Love or R.J. Davis. Bacot is unstoppable while Love scored 30 in the win over UCLA and Davis dropped 30 in the win over Baylor.

The line in this game should be Duke -1 to 1 ½ at most. The moneyline should be closer to UNC +110 to +1115. North Carolina wins this straight up.

Final Four Pick: North Carolina +160
