March Madness 2022: Final Four Preview

This weekend will be one of the most anticipated sports weekends ever. We have an EPIC Final Four on Saturday.

Looking for a hook up on seats for the Final Four? I got you covered. I personally use It because there are no fees attached to It! I went to the Elite 8 game in Chicago this past Sunday. Click the banner below and search for your preferred live event!

Let's start with Kansas Vs Villanova:

The Ceasar's Sportsdome Is where all the madness will happen. Tipping off at 5:09PM CST. Kansas (#1) Is coming Into this matchup as a 4 point favorite according to PointsBet Sportsbook. The Over/Under Is set at 133. (Odds as of Wednesday 11:30 AM) Odds subject to change.

Villanova has been playing lights out. They are making everyone playing their brand of basketball. Villanova's ball security Is amazing!  Their 3-point attempts are connecting at 35% this season, and the Wildcats are grab lots of boards, securing 31% of missed shots for the season. As you know, free throws aren't a strong suit for most college athletes. In this case, Villanova takes the cake at leading the country In making 83% at the FT line. This Is HUGE when the game gets close.

Kansas has a faster pace of play and have a great defense which ranks top 20 In the country. They are top 30 in shooting efficiency allowed, with opponents shooting only 29.6% from the 3 point line.. The Jayhawks are also allowing only 47% shooting from the field, and Kansas is above-average on the defensive glass, securing 72% of available rebounds.

Prediction: Villanova +4

Now for the game we all have been waiting for! The legacy game:

Duke Vs UNC

Coach K will face UNC for the first and last time. This Is the legacy game, to win all the marbles. Duke/North Carolina has been coined the biggest rivalry in college sports.

For the better part of country, they are not too fond of the Duke Program. Perception Is reality at this point, and the "Villian" Is turning It Into a retirement circus. In Coach K's 42 seasons with Duke, he has won 5 national championships and will be playing in his 13th Final Four on April 2nd.

He has 1,200 wins in Division 1 basketball. Love him or hate him, and chances are it’s the latter, it’s likely he will be remembered as the greatest college basketball coach of his generation.

The Tip-Off starts at 7:49 PM CST on Saturday. Duke Is favored by 4.5 points according to PointsBet Sportsbook. The Over/Under Is set at 151. (Odds as of Wednesday 11:30 AM) Odds subject to change.

UNC has some key players. Armando Bocot Is a beast on the glass. He can create space and goes hard In the paint. Their PG RJ Davis Is built with speed. Averaging around 13 points a game with 4 rebounds and 3 assists, he Is a viable threat to shut down Duke.

Duke also has some key players. They are definitely playing for Coach K. Their star forword Paolo Banchero averages around 17 points/game with 7 boards. He Is as productive as It gets.

During the last game against Arkansas, all 4 starters got double-doubles with a balanced attack. It also helps they have the best rim protector at Center, Mark Williams who averages around 3 blocks a game!

Prediction: Duke -4.5
