The Final Four is set, and it's the battle of the blue bloods (plus Villanova, because Villanova is not a blue blood).
Duke. North Carolina. Kansas. Nova. All headed to New Orleans. Four elite programs. Three Hall of Fame coaches. Roughly a million national titles and Final Fours combined among these four schools.
So how will shake it out once these two teams take the court?
Well, DraftKings has released opening lines for Saturday's games and they are as follows:
Villanova vs. Kansas (-4.5) - O/U 132.5
North Carolina vs. Duke (-4) - O/U 151
Admittedly these point spreads are not all that shocking.
While Villanova is an incredible story as a team in their third Final Four in the last six NCAA Tournament's, the bottom line is that they're limping into this event. They really only play about six to seven players big minutes, and just lost second-leading scorer Justin Moore to a season-ending injury. This after losing freshman bench player Jordan Longino early in the tournament.
In the second game, well, how do you gauge Duke-Carolina, especially when the Tar Heels just won in Cameron Indoor Arena less than a month ago? Still, a lot has changed since then, and to be honest, both teams are completely different since the last time they played.
Regardless, it's going to be a wild Final Four, and we'll have you covered all week long from New Orleans.
