Michigan State knocked off Duke, Virginia overcame last year’s opening-round loss to a No. 16 seed, Auburn made Charles Barkley proud and Texas Tech made it all the way to Minneapolis as a No. 3 seed.
The Final Four is set, and if you’re weeping over your completely busted bracket, we’re here to help you make it up by winning some money elsewhere on the college hoops action later this week.
Let’s break down some of the bets you can make on the contests that will take place, including Monday’s championship game despite the fact that we don’t know the matchup yet.
Final 4 Point Spreads Nfl
There are certain point spread numbers, like 3 and 7 in football, the sportsbook operators would like to avoid moving away from since the final score margin falls on these two numbers most often. For example, if a lot more money is wagered on the New England Patriots -3, the vig may shift from -112 to -115 and -120 before the line moves to -3.5.
Outright winner (Virginia +130, Michigan State +185, Texas Tech +420, Auburn +700; via Pointsbet)
Sorry, Chuck, but even you have to admit betting on the Tigers to win it all with Tom Izzo still coaching and a No. 1 seed to get by first is a bad idea. That said, I like Michigan State here. You get slightly better odds than the obvious Virginia selection along with Izzo’s experience and Cassius Winston starring.
National championship matchups (Virginia vs. Michigan State +110, Virginia vs. Texas Tech +250, Michigan State vs. Auburn +350, Texas Tech vs. Auburn +600; via Pointsbet)
Don’t completely count out the Red Raiders, who last lost a game in December against Duke. At +250, I’m willing to throw around some money on Virginia and Texas Tech.
Texas Tech vs. Michigan State (-3, via Vegas Insider)
It’s a complete toss-up, but I think Izzo and the Spartans are too good to pass up. Michigan State wins by four.
Auburn vs. Virginia (-5.5, via Vegas Insider)
Final 4 Point Spreads Point
I’m not a college hoops expert, but in the Final Four, you expect a tight game. Plus, the No. 1 seed won by four over Oregon and five in overtime against Purdue. That’s why the spread feels a tad too large for me, so I’d take Auburn to cover in the final seconds.
