This year has been one of the most interesting NCAA basketball betting tournaments on record. The games have been fast paced and unpredictable and terrific if you’re a big fan of college basketball betting. However, if you’re entered in an NCAA basketball bracket pool the college basketball betting tournament this year has probably been one of the longest months of your life.
If you’re one of the three people on planet earth that actually picked Duke vs. Butler Odds in the NCAA basketball lines championship than this may be the finest day of your life. But for the rest of the sports betting community out there –with your NCAA basketball bracket wadded up in the garbage can- this should still be a highly entertaining basketball betting matchup.
These two teams actually have very similar style’s of play and both have been playing at a very high level over the past month or two of the college basketball betting season. The key to both team’s success has been fundamental basketball. Both teams play defense, pass the ball well, shoot high percentage shots and make free throws. It’s sounds basic and simple but just ask the other 63 teams from the NCAA basketball betting bracket how simple it is.
But the other similarity between these two teams is good coaching. Coach K is obviously much more experienced in coaching NCAA basketball lines matchups but young Brad Stevens has taken a back seat to no one so far in this year’s NCAA basketball bracket in terms of coaching and he’s one of major reasons why the Bulldogs are in the college basketball betting final.
Duke is a 7-point favorite with a total of 129.
The biggest difference between these two teams however is talent and the Duke roster is simply more skilled and has greater depth than the Bulldogs. However, the same could be said for most of the Bulldog’s opponents in the NCAA basketball lines in recent weeks and how’d that work out?
