March Madness Final Four Parlay Predictions

Kansas -4.5 (-110)

At the time of writing, over 70% of all Moneyline bets are on Kansas, while 57% of against the spread tickets are taking Villanova +4.5. Though the Wildcats have been the more successful program when it comes to March Madness in recent years, Kansas figures to simply overwhelm this year’s Villanova squad.

Jay Wright is a terrific coach, but even he will have his work cut out for him in trying to account for the loss of Justin Moore. The junior guard tore his Achilles in the Wildcats’ Elite Eight triumph. Without him, Villanova will be down its second-leading scorer who plays nearly 35 minutes per game. Villanova’s rotation was very tight all season even with Moore in the lineup. Without him, the Wildcats are left with just five players who averaged more than 10 minutes this season.

Meanwhile, Kansas is one of the deepest teams in all of college basketball. That depth has been on display during the Jayhawks’ March Madness run. Leading scorer Ochai Agbaji really hasn’t needed to do all that much for Kansas to reach the Final Four, which is a true testament to the team’s depth. Christian Braun is a steady presence while sophomore big man Jalen Wilson has been a key cog in postseason play. Transfer Remy Martin has also exploded offensively for the Jayhawks.

Look for Kansas to assert itself against an undermanned Villanova squad.

Martin Over 11.5 points (-140)

Martin has certainly proven capable of getting buckets throughout his collegiate career, and bettors can expect more of the same in the Final Four.

After averaging only 8.6 points per game for Kansas during the regular season, Martin has emerged as a primary scorer during March Madness. He's failed to reach double digits only once during the tournament.

Martin finished with 15, 20, and 23 points, respectively in the first round through the Sweet 16. Throw in the Big 12 championship game, and Martin has gone Over 11.5 points in four of the Jayhawks’ last five games.

With Villanova needing to do some shuffling in the backcourt without Moore, Martin should be able to get his again in the Final Four game.

North Carolina-Duke Over 151 (-110)

Offensive excellence will be on display when these rivals collide. Both teams have been ridiculously efficient all season when it comes to putting the ball through the net.

In two head-to-head meetings during the regular season, the teams combined for 154 and 175 points, respectively. And North Carolina hasn’t slowed down since dropping 94 points on the Blue Devils in Mike Krzyzewski's final home game. Despite facing some solid defensive opponents on their run through the East Region, the No. 8-seed Tar Heels have twice surpassed 90 points and finished with no fewer than 69 during March Madness.

Meanwhile, KenPom rates Duke as the most efficient offense in the country. The Blue Devils have been even more consistent throughout the tournament than their opponent has. The Blue Devils haven't scored fewer than 78 points en route to the Final Four, including a 78-point performance against Texas Tech's No. 1-ranked defense.

Bacot Under 13.5 rebounds (-125)

Bacot dominated an undersized Saint Peter's frontcourt and finished with 22 rebounds. The 6-foot-10 junior averaged an impressive 12.6 boards per game this season, and he's been pounding the glass throughout March Madness. He's had no fewer than 14 in four of the Tar Heels’ last five games.

Unfortunately, Bacot’s impressive stretch could come to a screeching halt in the Final Four. Thanks to his work against Saint Peter's, his prop total is set at 13.5, almost a full rebound more than his season average.

Additionally, in the two regular-season meetings against Duke, Bacot had two of his worst rebounding performances of the year. He totaled five rebounds in the blowout loss in Chapel Hill and had only seven in the upset win at Cameron Indoor.

The Blue Devils have plenty of long, athletic bigs in their frontcourt. Expect them to limit Bacot’s production on the glass yet again.

Total 3-pointers made Under 45.5 (-115)

We round out our Final Four parlay picks with a wager that stretches into the national title game on Monday.

The line for total 3-pointers made across all three games is set at 45.5. Despite the tremendous offensive efficiency ratings by all four teams, none are overly reliant on the 3-point shot.

Villanova attempted the most shots from beyond the arc with 25.9 per game this season. It's the only Final Four team that ranked in the top 100 in average triples attempted.

Additionally, the Final Four tends to bring out the very best defensive effort from those teams involved, and playing in a football stadium tends to throw off outside shooters.

To put the line of 45.5 into perspective, consider the regular-season finale between North Carolina and Duke. The teams combined for 175 points, yet the game featured only 16 made 3-pointers.

Considering Villanova is shorthanded and Kansas ranked only 262nd in the country in 3-pointers attempted per game this season, this number will be tough to hit.
