Why Bet On Kansas Over Villanova
Can Kansas beat Villanova to reach the National Championship game? What will it take?
KU needs two of their backcourt trio of Devonte’ Graham, Malik Newman, and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk to get hot from three-point land. That is how the Jayhawks’ pick-heavy offense will keep up with Villanova’s high-powered offense. The Wildcats are statistically the best offensive team in the nation.
Why Bet On Villanova Over Kansas
Can Villanova beat KU to reach the National Title game?
Villanova leads the nation in scoring with 87 points a game. The Wildcats shoot 50% from the floor and hit about 12 three-pointers a game. Their average margin of victory through the tournament so far is an astounding 18.2-points. This game will be Villanova’s second trip to the Final Four in the last three years. You can’t buy that kind of experience.
My Final Four Bet, Kansas or Villanova?
Kansas! Kansas’ Elite Eight OT victory over Duke could have been the National Championship game this year.
Villanova is 4-1 ATS versus KU in their past five meetings and have every edge on paper to make it to the National Title game. But this season, the four times the Wildcats have lost, they were held to abysmal percentages from 3-point land. KU needs to defend Villanova 1-1. Anytime defenders drop to help, players kick-out for the open three-pointer.
I am betting that Kansas will drive to the rim early in the shot clock against Villanova. Probing for soft spots which do exist on the Wildcats defensive end. If unexploitable, KU will deploy pick and rolls for open shots beyond the arc. The Jayhawks have four strong three-point scorers.
