2023 Men’s National Championship Best Bets

Best Bet: SDSU-UConn Under 132.5

We finally made it! It will be tough to top the women’s championship game, but hopefully we will get spoiled with another great matchup to close out the college basketball season.

Let’s get down to business. We are taking the under here. We love unders. We love slow-tempo teams. Luckily for us, San Diego State and UConn are two teams that like it on the slower side. SDSU is No. 303 in pace, while UConn is No. 251, according to Haslametrics.

Throughout the NCAA Tournament, both teams have owned their opponents, as only four of the combined teams that SDSU and UConn have played have managed to score over 60 points. In March, these two schools are in the top five in adjusted defensive efficiency, meaning that the trend is most certainly our friend in this play. In the last ten games, the over/under record is 1-9 for SDSU and 3-7 for UConn.

As of Sunday night, 81% of bets are on the over. Do not be fooled. Do not be the public. Neither team is going to surpass the 70-point mark.
