When: Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 7:49 PM ETWhere: Sprint Center, Kansas City, MissouriTV: TBSLive Stream: NCAA LiveNCAAB Odds: Kansas -6.5 / Total: 158.5 

Why Bet The Oregon Ducks Odds at +6.5

There’s plenty of good reasons to bet on Oregon (20-15 ATS) in this contest like the fact that the Ducks have built some nice momentum in winning three straight – and nine of their last 10 games. The Ducks pounded Iona in their opener but struggled against Rhode Island while narrowly escaping with a 75-72 win. Oregon narrowly slipped by Michigan in their Sweet 16 showdown on Thursday 69-68 as Tyler Dorsey scored a team-high 20 points and Jordan Bell chipped in 16 points. The Ducks drained 8 of 17 from beyond the arc and outrebounded the Wolverines in the win.

Why Bet The Kansas Jayhawks Odds at -6.5

There are plenty of good reasons to back the top-seeded Jayhawks in this contest, starting with the fact that they’ve also got some nice momentum going by winning three straight and nine of their last 10 games. Kansas smacked UC-Davis and Michigan State senseless in their first two tournament matchups before routing No. 4 Purdue 98-66 in their Sweet 16 matchup on Thursday night to easily cover the spread as a 5-point favorite.The Jayhawks got a game-high 26 points from Frank Mason and Devonte’ Graham as two Jayhawks scored at least 25 points in the same tournament game for the first time since 1971. Kansas shot an incendiary 54.8 percent from the field (34-for-62) and 53.6 percent from beyond the arc (15-for-28) while getting four threes from Mason and five from Graham in the convincing win.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

The Oregon Ducks may have gotten past feisty Michigan on Thursday night, but seeing how Kansas has literally blown away the competition in all three of their tournament affairs and routed a very good Purdue team the last time out, I just don’t think the Ducks will be able to keep up with the much deeper Jayhawks. The Ducks may be 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 NCAA Tournament games, but they’re also an uninspiring 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games, 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning straight up record and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games following a straight up win.On the flip side of the coin, the Jayhawks have gone 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games. The Jayhawks have the look of a team that will not be denied an appearance in the Final Four and I believe they’ll find a way to cover the spread with just a bit of room to spare!

My final score prediction is Kansas 84 Oregon 75
