Final 4 Free Pick: North Carolina-Villanova Total

By JoeDuffy.net Administrator

The Wildcats have gone over the posted total in three of their four Tournament games, only staying under when they laid a 23-point beatdown on Duke in the Sweet 16. ‘Nova has averaged 81.0 points so far in the Tournament, which is a little higher than their season average of 77.0 points. Dwayne Anderson and Reggie Redding have stepped up to support Scottie Reynolds and Dante Cunningham, and the Wildcats, who are 17th in the country in free-throw shooting, have been money at the charity stripe: ‘Nova has hit 84.6% of their foul shots.

Strangely, the Tar Heels have gone under the total in three of their four Tournament games so far, and it’s strange because they’re No.2 in scoring in the NCAA. North Carolina is just under their season average of 90.0 points, scoring 88.75 points a game. However, their defense has taken some criticism this season as North Carolina has allowed 72.1 points a game, but in the Tournament, the Tar Heels are allowing only 66.2. The Elite Eight win over Oklahoma may have been UNC’s best defensive performance of the season, as they kept Sooners star Blake Griffin from taking over the game, and they harassed the rest of the Sooners into a 2-of-19 shooting performance from long distance. With defense like that, it’s easy to see why North Carolina are the Final Four betting favorites.

The Final Four betting total for this game is 159, and these two went under the total of 154.5 when UNC edged ‘Nova by one point in the 2005 Sweet 16. The Tar Heels obviously came into the Tournament looking to improve their defense, and with Ty Lawson back and healthy, their offense looks much more in control than they did in the opening win over Radford, in which they scored 101 points. ‘Nova can score points, but they would be wise to avoid a shootout with the Tar Heels, which would lead to a North Carolina romp. The Wildcats will look to keep the tempo down to give them their best chance of winning, while Lawson and Tyler Hansbrough, two high-percentage shooters, should dominate the UNC offense. One of last year’s Final Four games went under the total, and that was in UNC’s loss to Kansas. Make the under your Final Four betting pick in this showdown.

Today in the Daily Sports Roundup: The Lakers take on the Bobcats in Charlotte, the Habs host the Hawks, and the NIT semifinals get underway in New York City.

Tipping off on the hardwood  . . .

Kobe Bryant and the Lakers will be looking to get in the way of the Bobcats’ playoff aspirations on Tuesday night when the two teams collide in Charlotte. The Lakers, who are cruising to the top overall seed in the Western Conference, fell 86-76 in Atlanta on Sunday, with Bryant scoring just 17 points. The Bobcats are looking to catch the Pistons or Bulls for eighth place in the Eastern standings, and they helped their cause Saturday by picking up a 96-85 win over the Knicks.

There are eight other games on the NBA’s schedule for Tuesday, including Detroit at Cleveland and Chicago at Indiana. As well, it’ll be Atlanta at Philadelphia, Dallas at Minnesota, Oklahoma City at San Antonio, New York at Denver, New Orleans at Sacramento, and Utah at Portland.

The Panthers knocked off Dallas 6-3 on Saturday, and they now trail the Canadiens by one point for eighth place.

It’s Nashville at Columbus, Vancouver at Minnesota, and Anaheim at Edmonton in the key Western Conference clashes on the National Hockey League schedule for Tuesday night as those teams scramble to get into postseason position down the stretch. As well, East-leading Boston will play host to Tampa Bay, and the fading Stars will be looking for some signs of life when they travel to Los Angeles.

Rounding out the Roundup . . .

The National Invitational Tournament stages its semifinal round at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night, with Baylor vs. San Diego State and Notre Dame vs. Penn State. Baylor edged Auburn 74-72 in the quarterfinals, while San Diego State got past St. Mary’s 70-66; the Bears are 1-point favorites on Tuesday with the total at 136 points. Notre Dame knocked off Kentucky 77-67 last round, and Penn State rolled past Florida 71-62; the oddsmakers have the Fighting Irish pegged as 4-point favorites, with the game’s total now at 138 points.

As well, the championship game of the CollegeInsider.com Tournament will take place on Tuesday night, with Old Dominion at Bradley. The Braves got past Pacific 59-49 in the semifinal round of the tournament, and the oddsmakers have them listed as a slim 1-point favorite in the championship game (with the total at 127.5 points). The Monarchs are coming off an 81-43 win over James Madison.

Villanova-North Carolina Exclusive Betting Preview

By JoeDuffy.net Administrator

In the 2009 Final Four, Villanova and North Carolina follow the Connecticut-Michigan State game. The Vegas odds for North Carolina-Villanova has the Tar Heels as a seven-point favorite at BetUs Sportsbook  and 7.5 at Sports Betting Sportsbook. The total is 160 at all sportsbooks.

Villanova is 30-7 straight up and 19-14 versus the Vegas betting line. UNC is 32-4, but just 16-19 where it counts.

The high total is justified. North Carolina scores a scary 90 points per game to teams that normally allow just 60.2 on shooting 48.3 percent to 42.6.

Their defense is suspect, allowing 72.1 points per game. Villanova scores 77 points per game to teams that normally allow just 68.3. While they permit 66.9, the number is indicative of their pace. They hold teams to 3.8 percent shooting below their normal average. 

As far as against the spread information: The Wildcats are 10-3 off a spread win. The Tar Heels are 7-0 as an NCAA Tournament favorite of 7-12.5 and 3-8 off a spread win. They are also just 7-17 off a straight up win.

Villanova has gone under 9-2 in non-conference games. UNC has gone over 5-0 to the Big East.

Final Four Picks: One Upset, One Chalk Will Cover the Vegas Odds

By JoeDuffy.net Administrator

March Madness odds feature a couple of surprises on the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament, and now the field is set to make your Final Four picks. Here is a look at Saturday’s Final Four games, to be held at Ford Field in Detroit.

Michigan State vs UConn odds – Saturday, April, 4, 6:07 PM ET

The No. 2 Spartans took the Midwest region with a 64-52 win over top-seeded Louisville, as they held the Cardinals to 38.3 percent from the field, while Goran Suton put up 19 points and 10 boards in the post. The No. 1 Huskies emerged from the West with an 82-75 win over a pesky Missouri team, as they got 23 points off the bench from freshman Kemba Walker (tying his career high). The Huskies outrebounded Mizzou 45-26.

UConn is the Final Four betting favorite in this contest with a four-point spread, and these two powerhouses split a pair of meetings in 1998 and 2000, with the home team winning each time. This is essentially a home game for the Spartans, as eight Michigan State players hail from Michigan, where the game will be played. Look for the crowd to spark Michigan State to a March Madness betting upset over the Huskies.

Villanova vs North Carolina odds – Saturday, April 4, 8:47 PM ET

The No. 3 Wildcats needed a last-second shot by Scottie Reynolds to upend top-seeded Pittsburgh in the East, and Villanova was money at the foul line, hitting 22 of it 23 attempts. No. 1 North Carolina had perhaps its best defensive performance of the season in a 72-60 win over No. 2 Oklahoma to take the South region. The Tar Heels harassed the Sooners into a 2-of-19 shooting day from three-point range, while keeping Blake Griffin relatively quiet.

The Tar Heels have a Final Four betting spread of 7.5 points and, even though they are 1-2 in three career games against the Wildcats, North Carolina beat ‘Nova by 16 points in the Sweet 16 back in 2005. The Tar Heels have improved in each Tournament game and, if they play defense like they did against Oklahoma, there is no better team in the country. Bet on North Carolina to cover their Final Four odds.

Connecticut-Michigan State Exclusive Vegas Betting Line Preview

By JoeDuffy.net Administrator

Michigan State takes on Connecticut in the first game of the Final Four from Ford Field.  The winner will take on the victor of Villanova-Connecticut. The 2009 Final Four Vegas odds and point spread has Connecticut as a four-point favorite according to BetUs Sportsbook with the total at 135 at Sports Betting Sportsbook.

The elite sports handicappers have compiled the official betting preview of that game. The Spartans come in 30-6 straight up and 19-13 against the spread. Stevie Vincent, Senior Handicapper at OffshoreInsiders.com and the founder of the revolutionary forensic sports handicapping reminds us, “Michigan State is not exactly playing on a neutral court,” as the Final Four is in their home state.

Connecticut is 31-4 straight up and 17-14 to the Las Vegas betting odds. Michigan State enters hotter spread wise, covering 12-of-15. Though the Huskies have cashed the ticket in all four NCAA Tournament games, they are still just 5-6 their last 11 against the sportsbooks.

Connecticut has the edge in the statistical categories professional bettors utilize most: offensive and defensive field goal percentage net ratio. Michigan State makes 3.1 percent more of their shots than their opponents normally allow, but that’s compared to 4.9 for UConn.

On defense, MSU holds teams to 4.6 percent below their normal shooting percentage, but the Huskies have an even better net ratio of 6.4.

2009 Final Four tickets, FatHeads and fan gear are up now in the Guy Store.

As far as some against the spread records: the Spartans have covered six straight non-conference games and are a fantastic 23-6 versus an opponent winning percentage of .600 or greater. The Huskies are 41-20 as a favorite of 6.5 or less.

Over/under bettors will want to note that Michigan State has gone under 8-2 off a spread win. Conversely, Connecticut has gone over 7-1 in the Big Dance as a favorite and over 22-8 on neutral courts.
