Kansas -4.5

TeamOpening SpreadCurrent SpreadBets%Handle%

53 percent of the money coming in on the spread is on Kansas to cover the 4.5 points. For Kansas, Senior forward David McCormack is coming off his best game of the tournament where he put up 25 points and nine rebounds. With the combination of McCormack and Christian Braun, Kansas is expected to win pretty easily tonight. Kansas is just 3-2 ATS in the tournament so far but they've covered 52.9 percent of the time as a favorite this season.

Over 151.5 Points

O/UOpening TotalCurrent TotalBets%Handle%

This line has moved down to 151.5 but the money is still coming in on the over here. During the tournament, Kansas has hit their over just twice out of the five games that they've played so far. A more palatable number for this team is that when they are a favorite, they go to the over in 52.8 percent of their games.

As for UNC, they are 3-2 to the over in the tournament so far and 8-3 as an underdog. Hitting at 72.7 percent is enough to get me over the hump from the previous skepticism with Kansas' numbers.

Caleb Love to score 25+ points (+500) (Bet $100 to win $500)

During UNC's improbable run, Caleb Love has been a key focal point on offense for the Tar Heels. He has hit this prop in two of his last three games in the tournament, including a 28 point performance against Duke. On the season, in 38 games, Love is averaging 16 points per game and has cleared 25 points or more in two games this season.

North Carolina to score 50 points first (+125) (Bet $100 to win $125)

Last time out against Duke, they did not reach 50 points first. In their five games in the Tournament, UNC has reached 50 points first in three of the five. UNC features one of the best offenses in the ACC and we know they like to take their shots as they were not only first in the ACC in points but also field goal attempts.

Brady Manek over 2.5 three-pointers (-125) (Bet $125 to win $100)

After transferring from Oklahoma to UNC, Brady Manek's game rose to a new level. He's attempted more three-pointers since making the transition to North Carolina and ironically, his average per game is 2.5 three-pointers hit. Looking at his play in the tournament though, he's hit this in every single game so far including three against Duke last time out. This feels like a fairly safe one and it's easy to see why it makes it on the most popular bet list.
