The Jayhawks went 28-6 in the regular season on their way to winning the Big 12 conference tournament. They earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament and made their way through the Midwest Region. Kansas picked up wins against No. 16 Texas Southern, No. 9 Creighton and No. 4 Providence before heading to the Elite Eight. They beat No. 10 Miami 76-50 in the Elite Eight and followed it up with an 81-65 win over No. 2 Villanova in the Final Four. The Jayhawks are led by guard Ochai Agbaji who averages 18.9 points and 5.1 rebounds per game.

With a new head coach in Hubert Davis, the expectations for North Carolina weren’t especially high heading into the season. With some bad losses on their resume, the 24-9 Tar Heels earned an At-Large bid and a No. 8 seed in the East Region. North Carolina took on No. 9 Marquette in the first round of the NCAA Tournament and rolled to a 32-point win. They took down No. 1 Baylor in overtime in the second round and followed it up with a win over No. 4 UCLA in the Sweet Sixteen. They crushed the Cinderella dreams of Saint Peter’s in the Elite Eight. Their biggest win of the tournament so far was against No. 2 Duke in the Final Four. The Tar Heels are led by forward Armando Bacot who is a double-double machine averaging 16.3 points and 13.1 rebounds per game.

Notable Props

  • Caleb Love Over 17.5 points (-130): Love has averaged 20 points a game throughout the NCAA Tournament and dropped 28 in the team’s clutch victory over Duke on Saturday. He’s been a go-to force on the offensive end for the Tar Heels and he should be able to cross eclipse 17.5 points in tonight’s title game.
  • Christian Braun Over 2.5 assists (+110): Braun is averaging just 2.8 assists a game this season but has upped his numbers in the NCAA Tournament, averaging 3.8 through five games. Look for him to get at least three tonight.
  • David McCormack Under 7.5 rebounds (-125): McCormack has fallen below his season average in rebounds during the tournament, averaging just 5.6 rebounds through five games. Keep following the trend and take the under for him.
