The University of Butler college basketball betting team has already overcome so many odds in the NCAA basketball lines this March that team seemingly doesn’t feel any pressure any more. And why should it? After dispensing with the #1 and #2 seeds in its region of the NCAA basketball bracket it’s already seen some of the college basketball betting competition in the tournament so what does it have to fear in Duke?
Terrific outside shooting and strong rebounding, among other things, but in terms of intimidation, the Blue Devils #1 seed would seem to be of little advantage in this NCAA basketball bracket. And even though the #5 seed Bulldogs will be an underdog in the NCAA basketball lines that should have little impact on their confidence.
Butler has proved that it belongs in the NCAA basketball betting final on Monday and will play its brand of feisty, defensive basketball no matter who the basketball betting opponent is. True, Duke has more talent and deeper roster, but then again so did Syracuse, and Kansas State’s, other highly seeded opponents that Butler ousted from the NCAA basketball bracket.
The key for Butler to win the NCAA basketball lines matchup on Monday is to continue to play strong defense. Butler’s guards must disrupt the sharp shooting of the Duke’s Big Three and work the glass. Butler has to have a hand in the face of Scheyer, Singler and Smith every time they attempt a shot. If the Bulldogs can make them shoot a low percentage and limit second chance points in the paint they could easily win a low scoring game in college basketball betting championship game.
If Duke is able to shoot well from the outside it will make a Bulldog victory in this sports betting matchup very difficult. For one thing the game would likely turn into a high scoring affair and for another it would open up the inside game –neither development would favor Butler. For the Bulldogs to win the NCAA betting championship title they have force the Dukies into an off-shooting night and make sure Blue Devils big men don’t have a big night.
