Kansas Vs Villanova
When: Saturday, March 31st, 2018
Where: Alamodome, San Antonio, TX
Spread: Villanova -4
Bet on Kansas +4 because…
Kansas beat Duke. Of every team in this year’s Final Four, the Kansas Jayhawks had the toughest Elite 8 game. How tough was the 85 to 81 win over the Duke Blue Devils? Although KU was the 1-seed in the Midwest Region, Duke, the 2-seed, was favored by 3.5 points before tip-off. All Kansas did was force overtime and then beat Duke in overtime. The Jayhawks believe they’re destined to win March Madness.
Bet on Villanova -4 because…
Villanova is the best team in the NCAA Men’s College Basketball Tournament. Nova was a solid 9/2 favorite to win March Madness before Round 1. They haven’t done anything in the tournament to suggest they won’t take the trophy. Nova beat Radford, Alabama, West Virginia, and Texas Tech and they won every game rather easily. That’s how good of a team Villanova is.
Final Four Kansas Vs Villanova Final Score Prediction
Villanova will beat Kansas on Saturday, March 31. The reason is that even though Kansas could look good early in the game, Villanova will make the necessary adjustments to dominate the Jayhawks.
No coach in the Final Four is as good at making adjustments during a game than Nova’s Jay Wright. At halftime versus Alabama in Round 2, Villanova held a 32 to 27 lead.
All Wright did was make the necessary adjustments during the break for a stunning 81 to 58 Villanova victory. West Virginia was up by as many 6 points in the first half in the Sweet 16. Wright made in-game adjustments to secure a 44 to 42 Villanova lead at halftime.
Then, the Wildcats beat up the Mountaineers by 10 points, 46 to 36, in the second half for an easy 12-point win. It was the same story versus Texas Tech. The Red Raiders hung with Nova for a while. Then, Nova went on a run to beat Texas Tech 71 to 59.
Once Wright makes adjustments, Villanova should take off. They’ll beat Kansas by 8 points on March 31.
