2011 March Madness Betting - VCU, Butler Clash With Title-Game Spot On The Line
 

2011 March Madness Betting - VCU, Butler Clash With Title-Game Spot On The Line - 2011 March Madness bettingplayers will be witnessing a bit of history on Saturday night in Houston, when Butler and VCU go head-to-head in a matchup of the highest combination of seeds in the history of the NCAA Tournament. The Bulldogs come into this game as an eighth seed, while the Rams are a No.11 seed, so who will take their chance to get to the national championship game?

 

VCU Butler Betting – Saturday, 6:05 PM ET

 

The Rams weren’t even supposed to be in the Tournament according to the experts, and had to beat USC in a play-in game just to get into the bracket. But VCU has rolled through the Tournament, and claimed the Southwest region with a 71-61 win over top-seeded Kansas with another outstanding three-point shooting display. The Rams were 12-of-25 from beyond the arc, and the duo of Jamie Skeens (26 points, 10 boards) and sub Brandon Rozzell (12 points) combined to go 8-of-15. The Rams have dominated March Madness because of their long-range shooting, and they have beaten three of their four opponents in the Tournament by 10 points or more.

 

The Bulldogs, on the other hand, needed overtime to beat Florida 74-71 in another close finish. Butler’s highest margin of victory is seven points, and they have won two of their games because they had the ball last, so they’re cutting it close. Shelvin Mack again hit a number of big shots en route to 27 points, while Matt Howard added 14 points for the Bulldogs, who shot 40% from the field, but they held the Gators to 3-of-14 from beyond the arc and had a three-board edge on the glass, and the Bulldogs are in the Final Four for the second straight year because they do the little things it takes to win basketball games.

 

You should receive 5dimes if you picked this matchup in your Final Four, and the Bulldogs are 2.5- Vegas Odds point favorites in their first meeting with the Rams, who are making their Final Four debut. You probably don’t need numbers to know that the Rams are a dangerous underdog, but it is worth noting that VCU is 10-4 ATS this season when the other team is favored, while Butler is 11-13-1 ATS as a favorite. However, we’re going to go against the numbers and take the more experienced team in Butler, even though the Rams have had an amazing run to the Final Four and haven’t blinked in the face of adversity yet during the Tournament. Vegas Picks We just think that Butler’s experience in getting to the title game last year, not to mention their slew of close games in this year’s Tournament, will be the difference, so lay a sports bet on the Bulldogs.
