2017 NCAA Tournament Odds Final Four
March ends but the Madness continues as the Final Four: Gonzaga, South Carolina, Oregon, and North Carolina are set to meet on April 1st. Both Gonzaga and North Carolina are the two remaining number one seeds. The Zags ran over Xavier by 24 points while UNC just got by Kentucky 75-73. It is Gonzaga's first Final Four appearance and they are finally meeting lofty expectations while UNC, no stranger to this stage, makes its NCAA-record 20th appearance.
Oregon returns to the Final Four for the first time since 1939 after upsetting Kansas in lopsided fashion. South Carolina makes its first appearance after edging out the Florida Gators. We break down the games and pick the teams to play for the title the following Monday.
No. 1 Gonzaga vs No. 7 South Carolina Preview
The top-seeded Bulldogs crushed their "choke artist" labels by dismantling Xavier 83-59 to make their first trip to the Final Four. Despite surrendering 13 offensive boards, the Zags stifled the aggressive attack of the Cinderella team.
Against the Gamecocks, they can ill-afford to be out-rebounded again. The seventh-seeded South Carolina team is also in their first Final Four appearance and got this far by playing stellar defense.
Against SEC rival Florida, they shut down the perimeter forcing the Gators to shoot only 27% while their star player Sindarius Thornwell blew up for 26 points. Both the Zags and South Carolina are ranked one and two in defensive efficiency, respectively. As well as the Gamecocks have been playing, Gonzaga's poise and in-game adjustments will shine.GONZAGA -295
No. 1 North Carolina vs No. 3 Oregon Preview
UNC returns to the Final Four following a close tilt with Kentucky.
Despite the victory, the Tar Heels didn't have their best stuff. Both Joel Berry II and Justin Jackson combined for only 1 of 10 from deep. Against the Ducks, UNC will have to double down on their scoring, crashing the glass and containing the streaky scoring of the Ducks.
The third-seeded team put a beating on Kansas thanks to the monster games from Tyler Dorsey and Dillon Brooks. Both will again look to taste nylon while Jordan Bell will have to rebound like a madman going up against UNC's talented front court. It'll be a back-and-forth tilt with plenty of scoring and a shot at the Ducks at 2-1 odds is key.OREGON +180
