The big game is tonight and starts at about 9pm EST. Two storied basketball teams face off to cut down the nets and only one will be able to claim best team in the land.

The points spread was issued at Kansas -3.5 and then almost instantly shot up to Kansas -4.5. It has since come down to land right in the middle at Kansas -4 and the total is 151.5 points.

UNC will look to win their record 7th championship while Kansas will be looking to win their 4th in what is their 10th overall appearance in the game.

There is not a lot of history between these teams directly. In fact there are only four games to speak of between then in the 2000’s. Head to head they are 2-2 straight up but Kansas holds the ATS advantage at 3-1. The total has finished Under in 3 out of the 4 contests. Both teams have not only won but they have also covered their last 5 games. Both teams are hot and playing top-notch basketball.

UNC was actually underdogs in 3 of their last 4 contests, which they won straight up. And Kansas, being ranked one of the top teams in the country, was favored in all of their games. Kansas is 33-6 straight up but only 20-19 against the spread. UNC is 29-9 SU and a healthy 21-16-1 ATS.

UNC averages 78.13 PPG on offense and allows 71.26 points. Kansas scores 78.38 PPG and allows 67.21. UNC plays well on the road going 6-4-1 whereas Kansas is only 4-6 ATS. In my mind this is a road game for both.

Action Report

53% of the spread action is on UNC whereas 67% of the action on the total is on the Over. Many millions of dollars of bets has flowed in to sportsbooks all around the country. This game with this exciting matchup will probably set records as far as handle is concerned.

Picks

We are going to to Kansas minus the points to continue the ATS streak and make it four ATS covers in a  row for the Jayhawks against the ‘Heels. We are going to go against the public on the total and take the UNDER 151.5 points. Remember you can bet these picks or your very own at any one of these top rated sportsbooks.
