Gambling911.com has an early line on the Kansas vs. Villanova game, assuming these are the two teams that make it to the second Final Four game of 2018.

The line on this game should be Villanova -3.5 or -4.  This one opened at VIllanova -4.5, suggesting a slight overlay

As a top seed the last two seasons, Kansas made it through the regional semifinals, only to flop a game shy of the Final Four both times. In fact, this marks the sixth time Bill Self's team has been seeded first since KU won it all in 2008; the Jayhawks haven't made the Final Four one of those times.

''I think about it all the time. I just told the guys in the locker room...this year, we've got to get over the hump,'' said senior Devonte' Graham, who had 16 points.

Malik Newman led the Jayhawks (30-7) with 17 points to make it into the Elite Eight.

''This is the team everyone would have thought ... would not be in this game. We've got a legitimate shot to go to San Antonio. I think we'll play with no `what ifs.' I think we'll be loose,'' Self said.

Jayhawks are 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.

The Wildcats' 13 3-pointers against West Virginia give them 432 for the season, putting them 11 away from a Division I record. VMI hit 442 3-pointers in 2006-07.

Jalen Brunson led Villanova with 27 points and Omari Spellman had 18 with eight rebounds as Villanova overcame the West Virginia press by hitting 13 of 24 shots from 3-point range.

This will be their second trip to the regional finals in three seasons.
