The Final Four props have been released. Check them all out as props can be just as exciting as the game itself.
Editors note: The game and title odds have also been updated with Butler (-1) vs. Michigan State and Duke (-2 ½) vs. West Virginia.
Duke +120 to win the tournament
West Virginia +225
Michigan State +450
Shelvin Mack – 14 total points
Mack (14.2 PPG) is one of only two real scorers for Butler, along with Gordon Hayward (15.5 PPG). Mack had 25 points in the opening round against UTEP, then 11, 14 and 16 the last three games. He can be streaky, but I don’t think the Bulldogs can win without a bunch of shots from him.
Prediction: Over 14 points
MSU vs. Butler – Largest lead of game 12.5 points
This is going to be a low scoring game by all accounts. The total is 126 points and Butler hasn’t given up more than 59 in any game during this tournament. The Michigan State and Tennessee Elite Eight game never had a double-digit lead for either team. I can see this game going the same way.
Prediction: Under 12.5 point largest lead
Duke – Total Points 67
Duke has broken 67 points each of the last four tourney games. West Virginia is a very good defensive team, just like Duke, and total is 131 points. While this will be a defensive game, I think the scoring will be a little higher than people think – on both sides.
Prediction: Over 67 points
Brian Zoubek – 13.5 total points and rebounds
The 7-foot-1 center isn’t much of a scorer, 5.5 PPG on the season and 4.5 PPG the last two games. He’s been a monster rebounder of late with 12 RPG the last three contests. Zoubek will be needed to combat the tall West Virginia frontline, and he’ll get a few baskets too.
Prediction: Over 13.5 points and rebounds
