Here are my five bets that I like the most for Monday’s NCAA Basketball National Championship game between North Carolina and Kansas.
Remy Martin (Kansas) UNDER 11.5 Points
Martin has faded into the background in the last two tournament games for Kansas, totaling 12 points between the two contests.
Remy Martin (Kansas) UNDER 4.5 Rebounds
Same as above, Martin’s performance has eroded since the Jayhawks have advanced to the late rounds of the tournament, with his rebound totals steadily decreasing per game.
RJ Davis (UNC) First 3 Point Basket Made
Winning late in March is all about guard play, and that is how UNC has made in this far in the tournament. Look for them to be aggressive from behind the arc early.
Kansas 1H -1.5
Although the Tar Heels have been hot late in the tournament, they have not always gotten off or great starts. I fully expect Kansas to exceed this first half margin.
Kansas Total Points UNDER 78.5
All that needs to be said here is that this game is being played on a neutral floor and is the biggest game of the entire season. Nerves are a given and this will have an impact on the total points scored.
WHEN YOU WIN, please let me know on Twitter @andrewbetss! GOOD LUCK!
