West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Duke Blue Devils Final 4 Pick


The Duke and West Virginia will face off in what many will perceive to be the National Championship game itself, as the winner will be heavily favored when it slugs it out with a #5 seed in the title game

Both of these teams took incredibly difficult routes to reach the end of the March Madness road.

West Virginia bounced #15 Morgan State 77-50, #10 Missouri 68-59, and #11 Washington 69-56 to set up a showdown with #1 Kentucky on Saturday. Not only did the Mountaineers pass their biggest test of the season, but they passed with flying colors, winning 73-66 to make it to the school’s first Final Four in over 40 years.

The Duke Blue Devils are finally back in the Final 4, and there aren’t many in the business this time of year better than Coach K. The Dookies are also 4-0 SU and ATS in the dance, and they’ve reached this point by taking care of #16 Arkansas-Pine Bluff (73-44), #8 California (68-53), #4 Purdue (70-57), and #3 Baylor (78-71).

The pressure defense of the Mountaineers may be just a bit much for the Dookies to handle. Both of these teams love to kick up the intensity when they’re on the floor, but West Virginia just does it better than Duke does. West Virginia won an NCAA Tournament betting battle between these teams in 2008 73-67, and a similar result should be expected, as the Big East champs move on to the championship game. Grab the points!

Michigan State-Butler Final Four Picks, Odds & Score Prediction

Vegas Experts Final 4 PicksLive Butler vs. MSU Final 4 Odds


March Madness betting only has three games left, but those three games should be incredibly hot and heavy, as the Final Four pits four incredible squads with great story lines against one another in Indianapolis!

Michigan State Spartans vs. Butler Bulldogs Final 4 Pick:


My, what a story this game is! These two teams are the most unlikely entrants into the Final Four since George Mason pulled off the feat.

Michigan State got here by winning a Midwest Bracket that just looked impossible to navigate. But the Spartans didn’t have to do a ton of work to get through to Indianapolis, as #1 Kansas, #2 Ohio State, and #3 Georgetown were all dismissed by other foes. Sparty took care of #12 New Mexico State 70-67, #4 Maryland 85-83, #9 Northern Iowa 59-52, and #6 Tennessee.

On the other hand, the Butler Bulldogs started off with its weakest possible set of contenders at the outset of this tournament, but finished up with a flurry. The West Bracket champions beat #12 UTEP 77-59 and survived #13 Murray State 54-52 to advance into the second week of the tournament, where they went out and did some major damage. Both #1 Syracuse and #2 Kansas State couldn’t figure out the stout Butler ‘D’, as the Horizon League champs knocked those two teams off 63-59 and 63-56 respectively in the Sweet 16 and Elite 8 of the dance.

The Spartans are going to need to take advantage of their experience and veteran leadership, even without G Kalin Lucas on the court. No Horizon League team has ever made it to the Final Four, and this could be just a bit much for them. Butler is playing out of its skull, and yes, it owns the nation’s longest winning streak at 24 games.

However, I foresee that streak coming to a close against Michigan State, who will go to its second straight National Championship game in a nail biter. Who would of ever thought MSU would get a chance to erase the memories of the beat down they absorbed in the National Championship game just a short season ago? Not this Jayhawk fan!



- A few betting trends to consider:

Michigan State is 7-1 SU in its last 8 games
Michigan State is 4-2 ATS in its last 6 games
Butler is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Butler’s last 6 games

Duke and Michigan State are 2 huge college basketball powers with massive amounts of alumni. Finally, West Virginia plays the a little bit of the villain role as head coach Bob Huggins will not win any like-ability contests.
