Texas Tech is heading to the Final Four for the first time.  The College Basketball Betting Power Ratings indicate a line of Villanova -6.  There appears to be a slight overlay of a half point here with the Wildcats at -6.5.

Nearly 70% of the betting action was on Villanova.  There has been no line movement whatsoever on this game. Let's see if Villanova wins by exactly 6 points in this one. 

Texas Tech is just 2-7-1 Against The Spread in their last 10 games overall.

Keenan Evans led four Red Raiders in double figures with 16 points as Texas Tech (27-9) finished off a very good third-seeded Purdue late Friday night.

The Wildcats, seeking their second national title in the last three years and their third all-time, survived a slugfest against former Eastern 8 and Big East opponent West Virginia on Friday. They won their eighth in a row, led by Jalen Brunson with 27 points and Omari Spellman with 18 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three blocked shots and two steals.
