National Championship Prediction: Expect Plenty of Points in Kansas vs. UNC

This is it, people. The last game of the college hoops season. Just a couple of weeks ago, we had too many games to bet in front of us. And now we only have one. It should be noted that I was able to get down on every single game of the NCAA Tournament so I made the most of March Madness. Did I win money? No. But I won something better. Fun. You can't put a price on that. People have tried. They failed. The only way I know to buy fun is bet money on a sport you don't normally watch and then watch it play out. It works. I did it all throughout the month of March and look how happy I am. We've got one more chance at happiness tonight with North Carolina and Kansas. The smartest thing we could do right now is to take a couple plus money bangers and send this tournament out in style. It makes sense and you know it.

Kansas Team Total Over 81.5 (+152) (Bet $100 to Win $175)

*Odds available at FanDuel Alt Line at time of publishing*

The only way to bet the final game of the season is to take the over. This is a betting strategy made famous by opium-smoking monks betting on basketball in the 1100s and it is still going strong today. It's simple, the people want points. I don't think I've ever had a bad time betting the over. In any sport.

The thing about this one is, that it is definitely going to hit. Here's proof. I want you to say the first number that comes to mind when I ask a question. Don't think about it, just answer. Are you ready? How many points is Kansas going to score tonight? See. 84. That's more than 81.5 so the over wins. I bet you're wondering how I did that. I'll tell you.

The books are just looking at the fact that Kansas hasn't scored at least 82 points in a game since the first round. That's true but it's not their fault. It's their opponents' fault. Why do you need to score at least 82 points when the team you're playing can't even break 72. They only did it in the first round to prove a point. Since then, just win.

This game will be much different than the others. North Carolina will score and they will play fast. Those kids play like the building is on fire. You just saw it the other night. Kansas has been waiting to see a team like this for a few games now. They only had 58 possessions last game and they dropped 81. The idea that they won't score 82 points tonight is laughable since they could see possessions in the 70s.

North Carolina Team Total Over 80.5 (+240) (Bet $100 to Win $240) - FanDuel Alt Line

*Odds available at FanDuel Alt Line at time of publishing*

Here's the thing people. As good as the Kansas bet was, this one might be even better. The haters are going to say that the Jayhawks are good on defense but those people are haters and they can't be trusted. Never trust a hater. Everyone knows that.

Still, the haters are going to say Kansas hasn't given up more than 73 points all tournament. What those people are forgetting is that Kansas hasn't played a team like North Carolina. It's easy to hold teams down when they can't shoot. I want to see them do it to a team like the Tar Heels who can hit threes and score inside. I know Villanova hit threes but they missed everything inside. They legit shoot worse from inside the three-point line than they did behind it. Do you even realize how hard that is to do? It's crazy.

North Carolina is the 50th best three-point shooting team in the country and they can get it done in the paint. Anyway, the Jayhawks want it, people. On top of that, I think the Bacot kid is going to play and I bet he still rebounds the ball like it's the only thing God put him on earth to do. You don't think that won't lead to a couple of extra possessions? Put down the crack pipe.

The beauty of these two bets are the fact that we only need one to happen to walk with a few greenbacks. If one team blows the other team out, no worries, we still win as long as somebody gets to 82. But, listen closely. Maybe even move your ear closer to the computer/phone you're reading this on. Both of these could hit. And if that happens, it will be the most electric possible ending to the season imaginable. We have to do this.
