Basketball Classic Final Odds on DraftKings Sportsbook
Point spread: Fresno State -3
Moneyline: Fresno State -155, Coastal Carolina +135
Best bet: Under 126.5
Fresno State’s defense is by far the biggest strength in this matchup as they rate No. 32 in KenPom’s adjusted efficiency and when you combine that with how slow they play, the under is a great bet. The Bulldogs rate No. 355 out of 358 college basketball teams in adjusted tempo, and Coastal Carolina does not like to speed things up either. It’s not a whole lot of fun in a championship game setting, but root for bricked 3-pointers and shot clock violations on Friday night because the under is the best bet in this spot.
