Final Four Betting – Picks For The Final Four And Championship Monday

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 2:47:09 AM

Sports betting players who picked this Final Four should be commended as no one would have ever selected a Final Four of VCU, Butler, Kentucky and Connecticut, but those four will do battle on Houston for the right to cut down the nets on Championship Monday. While there are a couple of mid-majors and one program that has only joined the party in the past couple of decades, we’re taking the program who has an unrivalled pedigree in college hoops.

VCU Butler Betting (Saturday, 6:09 PM ET)

The Bulldogs are favored by 2.5 points in their second consecutive Final Four, while the Rams are here for the first time in their history, and if you like Cinderella teams, this is as good as it gets, although we won’t be able to say that about Butler for much longer. The Bulldogs have been winning close games and their highest margin of victory is seven points, against Wisconsin. Only Florida State has kept VCU within 10 points, and they needed overtime against the Rams, who have been absolutely unconscious from three-point land. VCU has hit 45.1% from beyond the arc, and the Bulldogs have to get out on the Rams’ gunners in order to win this game. Butler plays a deliberate half-c ourt style with Shelvin Mack and Matt Howard leading the way, and Mack in particular has been great in the Tournament. VCU’s Jamie Skeen and Joey Rodriguez have been just as good, and the seniors have thrived in the moment. We’d love to give the advantage to Butler because of their experience in last year’s Tournament, but the Rams have been playing extraordinary basketball. In a game with the lowest seeding combination of all time (Butler is a No.8, VCU is a No.11), expect the unexpected.

Betting Edge: VCU Rams +2.5

UConn Kentucky Betting (Saturday, 8:49 PM ET)

College basketball betting odds have the Wildcats as a 2-point favorite in their 14th Final Four game, while the Huskies are here for the fourth time in their history. However, UConn has been on a roll with nine straight wins, and they have yet to lose in a tournament game, winning in Maui as well as the Big East tournament. Kemba Walker has gotten some scoring help from Jeremy Lamb, and the Huskies have done a good job of dealing with teams who have size on their side. The Wildcats have made it farther than the freshman-laden group who went to the Elite Eight and then bolted to the NBA last year, and if you didn’t know Brandon Knight was a star, you do now. The matchup between Knight and Walker is going to be fun to watch, but Kentucky has to slow down Lamb because we know Walker is going to get their points. This would also be a good game for Terrence Jones to snap out of his scoring slump for the Wildcats. UConn’s run stops here.

Championship Monday Prediction: VCU Kentucky Betting

In what we think will be the game that decides the NCAA Tournament winner, Kentucky would be the favorite over the upstart Rams, and we know that VCU loves to shoot the three-pointer. The Wildcats did an excellent job against top overall seed Ohio State, not percentage-wise because the Buckeyes hit 37.5% from their chances, but Ohio State put up only 16 attempts because the Wildcats never gave them the opportunity to get into a rhythm. Having Josh Harrelson inside allows Kentucky to play one-on-one on the perimeter, and the Wildcats are an athletic team, probably more athletic than any team VCU has played so far in the Tournament. Kentucky hasn’t gotten a lot of credit for their defense, but the Wildcats have really stepped up that part of their game down the stretch and in Knight, they have a player who can take over in the late minutes of games. The Rams aren’t going to lay down, obviously, but like Butler fell short against Duke last year, VCU will do the same against Kentucky. Bet on the Wildcats to win their eighth title and first since 1998 in your online betting picks.
