TWO COASTS, ONE CLASH

MARQUEE MATCHUP: PART ONE

PointsBet Data and Insights

TIPOFF: 6:09 p.m. ET

KEY STATS: FAU has won all four tourney games by eight points or fewer and outrebounded K-State 44-22 in the Elite Eight to make up for 22 turnovers. SDSU is fourth in KenPom adjusted defensive efficiency but just 74th offensively.

TRENDING: San Diego State is 15-5-2 ATS in its last 22, and FAU is 19-7-2 ATS versus teams with winning percentages above .600. The under ⬇️ has cashed in 19 of the Aztecs’ last 26 contests, and it’s 5-2 in the Owls’ last seven.

EXPERT PICKS

No weekend slowdown for us! College sports guru Lucy Rohden is joined by editors Max Meyer and Teddy Greenstein.

THE EDITOR

SGP (+155): FAU + 5.5 (-170) & over 129.5 (-140) alt lines
“FAU has plenty of shooters with its four-guard lineup. I’m grabbing points in a tight game.”
GAME PROPS: Half Time/Full Time: UConn/UConn (-120)
“I can’t lay the 5.5 to Miami, but I like the Huskies to lead at halftime and earn the dub.”

THE COMEDIAN

FAU +2.5 (-110) vs. San Diego State
“Taking FAU to the natty simply because that would be objectively hilarious.”
UConn -5.5 (-110) vs. Miami
“Two Florida teams making the national championship would be simply unnatural.”

THE INCOMING EDITOR

FAU +2.5 (-110) vs. San Diego State
"The Aztecs have an elite defense, however their March Madness opponents shooting 17.0% (16/94) from beyond the arc isn’t sustainable. The Owls will have plenty of shooters on the floor all game, and they’ll knock down their open looks."

PointsBet Data and Insights

TRENDING: Miami and UConn are a combined 8-0 ATS in the tourney. The under ⬇️ is 6-2 in the last eight Huskies matchups, though the over is 4-1 in the Canes’ recent five.

DON'T TREND LIGHTLY

TREND IS YOUR FRIEND

The Owls had a hoot in March. What about when the calendar flips to April on Saturday?

• UConn is 25-11-1 (69.4%) ATS this season, which is the third-highest cover rate nationally. FAU is fifth at 24-11-1 (68.6%).

• Coaches who have more Final Four experience than their opponents are 42-30 (58.3% straight up) since 1979. Advantage: Miami.

• Unders ⬇️ went wild at 27-9 (75%) through the first round and First Four, though the over ⬆️ is 8-4 (66.7%) since the Sweet 16.

• A team that’s been favored in its Final Four matchup has gone on to win the national title in 17 of the last 18 tournaments.

• Heading into the tourney, only three teams made the Final Four with an adjusted defensive efficiency outside the top 40 since 2012. Miami (104th) beat that trend.

TITLE ODDS PROGRESSION

BACK TO THE FUTURES️

PointsBet Data and Insights

When PointsBet released 2023 men’s basketball title futures back on April 5 of last year, North Carolina (+1200), Kansas (+1200), Duke (+1200) and Kentucky (+1300) were on top.

FAU wasn’t added until Jan. 12, when the Owls were first priced at 300/1 (+30000).

RIDIN' ON THE STORM

BIG BET

PointsBet offered the Hurricanes at +5000 even after they reached the Sweet 16. This client from Ontario, Canada, jumped on it!

They are now +450.
