    Oregon Ducks @ North Carolina Tar Heels NCAAB Preview

    My Team's Next MatchOregon Ducks

    The Oregon/UNC game is the latter of the Final Four games on Saturday night, but it's the one that will generate the bigger interest from the betting public.

    Many expected North Carolina to reach this point, but not many had Oregon getting through their region, but with some tremendous play last weekend they were able to get through two of the hottest teams in the country in Michigan and Kansas.

    Do the Ducks have another stellar performance in them to reach the championship round? 

    After Kansas had won their first three games by at least 20 points, Oregon used a tremendous combination of stellar defence and good shooting to dominate the Jayhawks from start to finish.

    The Ducks were often overlooked all year being on the West Coast and not having the brand name that a UCLA or Arizona does, and especially not like UNC, but they were in the Top 10 in the polls for the majority of the season and showed why last weekend.

    This will be a similarily tough test against another high-powered offence, but they've thrived in the roll of underdogs of late and catching this many points is the best way to wager on this contest, especially when Oregon is 11-2 ATS as underdogs of 6.5 points or less in their last 13 tries.

    Grabbing the points with Oregon isn't the only strong wager out there for the Final Four as bettors can find edges on the point spread in the other game, as well as the two totals for both.

    South Carolina has been the Cinderella team of this year's tournament and there are quite a few that would love to see them continue that run and set up a potential all-Carolina National Championship. It remains to be seen what will happen, but these are the plays we'll be on.

    • Gonzaga -7 (-115) - The Gamecocks have been a nice story all tournament long, but if you read our tournament preview here, you'll know that it's the programs that are seeded 1 through 4 that particularly get it done in the end. The Cinderella story for South Carolina should end against a Gonzaga team that's only been beaten once.
    • South Carolina/Gonzaga Under 138 (-110) - Both programs pride themselves on their defence, have dominant big men inside to clean up the glass, and with the nerves of being in a Final Four game likely to hit early on, getting 138 points or more is a lot to ask. 
    • Oregon ML (+175) - Most sportsbooks have already been hit with boatloads of money on North Carolina and will without question be rooting for the upset here. The Ducks have surprised many by getting to this point yet still feel like they haven't gotten the respect they deserve. Being on the side of the sportsbook isn't usually a bad thing and it's a nice price as well.
