Kansas vs. Villanova Final Four Betting Preview, Prediction

Written by:

Bill Self has finally put a monster season and a monster team together and he will probably not be denied. Villanova has a fantastic team with stars that come to play ball and they will be ready but they had better be prepared to take on some playground ballers that know how to get the brawl on. This Kansas team comes loaded to the gills and they have not missed a beat, they took their lumps early in the season and they saw their fair share of hard times; it made them stronger.  SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE

   7.49 PM EST TBS

   Villanova -5

   Total 155

It has been a while for the Jayhawks, 2008 was too long for this team and they are ready to explode with the like of Graham and Azubuike. They will be a fierce duo to contend with and Villanova know they have their hand full in this battle.

Vegas is not looking at the big picture. They don’t get it, -5 is extremely forgiving and with the way this team is playing it makes no sense. Now is the time to get in. Jump on this one today before this line moves any further, Kansas will not be getting +5 before tip off, not a chance.

The Jayhawks are scoring 81.4 ppg and giving up 74.0 ppg. The Wildcats are scoring 86.6 ppg, and giving up just 64 ppg. Now that’s tough defense and Villanova is shut-down at times, there is no question about their heart and their defensive ability.

The Jayhawks have had their miscues this season and it was clear that they needed a “come to Jesus meeting” after the loss ASU and Washington. It seems that Self played that role quite nicely. In Bill they have trusted and it has been a spectacular finish to the season for the Jayhawks.

Kansas smacked Penn in the opening round and then got by a very tough Seton Hall. Clemson never stood a chance against a team that took all of their frustrations out on them; it was ugly. The Duke game became an instant classic that took overtime and what a fantastic finish for Kansas, sending two lottery picks in Allen and Bagley, to the showers without cutting the nets.

Kansas has a three headed beast in the backcourt made up of Graham, Newman, and Myhkhailiuk and they will get after it from downtown. Look, Kansas’ road to this Final Four was tougher than Villanova’s and they have overcome the odds to get where they are. The Wildcats are tough, don’t misunderstand, they have players that can ball big time. This game will go all 40 minutes and then some. Nobody is calling for a blowout or an easy victory here.

No matter whom you like in this one, mark it down for close. Don’t even think of giving -5. If you can’t bet against Villanova, that’s respectable but do not lay -5, that’s a bad decision. Kansas will take the Villanova Wildcats deep and this will be the best game of the two.
