For the very first time in the real history of the NCAA Tournament, a No. 10 seed has advanced to the Final Four. The Syracuse Orange have become the fourth double-digit seed to reach the Final Four Predictions in the real history of the dance, but none of the last three actually reached the National Championship Game. That’s what Jim Boeheim and company are facing when they accept their conference foes, the North Carolina Tar Heels in the second Final Four matchup on Saturday night.
North Carolina finished up going through a really weak East Region to reach Houston, and it made that bracket look as weak because it was. None of the four games the team played were all that close in the long run, and live bettors should take note that whenever games were close for a time, the Tar Heels merely used relentlessness to keep to build a lead. When UNC has gotten up, live bettors haven’t had to sweat all that much. Only Notre Dame made any kind of a reasonable run from the Tar Heels in this tournament after falling behind by double-digits.
We’re also not going to state that the Orange haven’t had to fight to obtain here. It’s only that, for a No. 10 seed, Syracuse avoided No. 2 Michigan State and No. 3 Utah in the Midwest Region.
What live bettors will love concerning the’Cuse is the actual fact that they have really put away close games down the stretch against really good teams. They could’ve folded against Gonzaga in the closing moments but knocked down enough shots and made enough stops to obtain the task done, and the comeback against Virginia was about as epic because it gets.
Syracuse has covered seven of its last eight as well, but whereas UNC has been blowing out teams of comparable nature to the Orange, the Orange haven’t seen anything quite like this yet in this tourney. Sure, the win over UVA was nice, but this game is going to be played at a whole different tempo, one which live bettors might find conducive to backing the Heels over the Orange with regularity.
