VCU vs. Kansas Line

The VCU vs. Kansas line had Virginia Commonwealth University as the +11 underdog against the NCAA Tournament’s only remaining number one seed.  VCU comes into this game as an 11th-seeded team.  They have become the primary Cinderella school remaining in the Tournament along with Butler.  Kansas was getting 65 percent of the early spread betting action at Bookmaker.com

VCU managed a 72-71 overtime win against Florida State Friday night. 

Bradford Burgess made the winning layup with six seconds left as VCU advanced to its first Elite Eight.
"I had been messing up -- my layups were getting blocked," said Burgess, who scored 26 points, making six of seven 3-pointers. "I wasn't going to the hole strong enough, and I said if I got the chance I wanted to win the game for the team."
An 11-seed reached the Elite Eight for the fifth time. No. 11 seeds are 2-2 in the Elite Eight.

Kansas meanwhile easily handled the 12th-seeded Richmond Spiders Friday evening.  This is their 4th Elite Eight appearance in 8 seasons.

Thomas Robinson had 12 points and 14 rebounds, and Marcus Morris scored 13 for Kansas.

The Jayhawks have won all of their Tournament games thus far by an average of nearly 18 points.

NBA Betting May 7, 2021 – Los Angeles Lakers at Portland Trail Blazers

The Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers will both be playing after the regular season concludes. We just don’t know if they’ll be in the top-six or in the play-in tournament. LA and Portland are two of three teams vying for the final two playoff spots with the club missing out being relegated to the play-in.

NBA Betting May 6, 2021 – Brooklyn Nets at Dallas Mavericks

NBA Betting May 6, 2021 – Brooklyn Nets at Dallas Mavericks

If the Dallas Mavericks are relegated to the play-in tournament they can lay the blame on one of the worst teams in the Western Conference. The Mavs enter their contest with the Brooklyn Nets having won seven of their last 10 games with the three defeats all coming at the hands of the Sacramento Kings.

NBA Betting May 4, 2021 – Toronto Raptors at Los Angeles Clippers

NBA Betting May 4, 2021 – Toronto Raptors at Los Angeles Clippers

The new play-in format has the Toronto Raptors in line to potentially compete for a spot in the postseason. That’s good news for a club that has plodded along for most of the campaign. While there are some who detest the play-in the Raps certainly aren’t one of them. They enter the week 2.5 games out of the 10th spot and continue a difficult stretch of games against Western Conference foes with Tuesday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers

NBA Betting May 3, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Lakers

NBA Betting May 3, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers are in a freefall that even their two best players have been unable to get them out of. We all thought they would return to their early season ways once Anthony Davis and LeBron James returned, but that hasn’t happened.

NBA Betting May 1, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers

NBA Betting May 1, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers

If the Denver Nuggets didn’t have to play Golden State they’d be in a much better position right now. Despite the loss of Jamal Murray, the Nugs are on a roll having won four straight and eight of their last nine games. Their only loss during that span was to the Dubs and a setback to the same club preceded the current run.
