2019 Final Four Odds and Analysis

Auburn vs. Virginia

  • When: April 06, 2019, 6:09 PM ET
  • Where: U.S. Bank Stadium
  • Spread: Virginia -5.5
  • Total: 131

Analysis: Both teams won their spot in the Final Four after defeating their opponents in overtime wins in the Elite Eight. Auburn vs. Virginia will be a back-and-forth battle to control the pace of the game. However, both squad have completely different ways of accomplishing this.

Virginia tends to wait for the shot clock to run down before they take a shot. Auburn, on the other hand, looks for turnovers to turn into quick buckets.

Auburn seems to have the offensive edge over Virginia, stacking 79.6 points per game versus the Cavaliers’ average of 71.3 ppg. But, Virginia leads the nation with 55.4 ppg surrendered this season against Auburn’s 69.3 ppg allowed.

Pick: Auburn +5.5

Texas Tech vs. Michigan State

  • When: April 06, 2019, 8:49 PM ET
  • Where: U.S. Bank Stadium
  • Spread: Michigan State -2.5
  • Total: 132.5

Analysis: It’s going to be a Samson and Goliath-sized battle for First Four first-timer Texas Tech. However, having knocked up No. 2 Michigan and No. 1 Gonzaga to get to this game, should tell you something about the Red Raiders.

Both squads are solid defensively, which means this game may be a drawn-out defensive battle. Most likely, the team that can create better-shot opportunities will win.

The Spartans should have an edge on offense though, one which Texas Tech could find difficult to overcome. Not to mention head coach Tom Izzo’s experience of seven trips to the Final Four with this program that should give the Cavaliers a boost of confidence.

Pick: Michigan State -2.5
