NCAA March Madness Final Four Preview

NCAA March Madness Final Four Preview. The March Madness Men’s College Basketball Final Four is here. Midwest Region winner Miami-Florida upset the Texas Longhorns to stamp their ticket to the top men’s college basketball prize.

The Connecticut Huskies dominated the Gonzaga Bulldogs 82-54 to win the West Region. UConn and Miami throw down in the second semifinal on Saturday.

The March Madness continued in the Elite Eight on the other side of the bracket. No team represents March Madness as much as the 9-Florida Atlantic Owls, and the Owls stamped their ticket to the Men’s Final Four by outlasting favored Kansas State.

The South Region went to 5-San Diego State. Although the Aztecs were the higher seed over the Creighton Blue Jays, most believed Creighton would win and play for the National Title.

Check out a list of the 2023 Men’s Final Four:

March Madness Tournament Head Coach Profiles

Bookie betting agents who throw money down in their layoff accounts should not only handicap teams. Sportsbook software agents should also handicap coaches.

Keep reading for profiles of the four coaches at this year’s Final Four.

Dusty May – Florida Atlantic Owls

The FAU head coach started his career at Eastern Michigan. His latest stint before taking over at FAU was as an assistant at Florida. May heads to the Final Four for the first time in his career.

Brian Dutcher – San Diego State Aztecs

From 1999-2017, Brian Dutcher served as the assistant to Steve Fisher at San Diego State. When Fisher retired, he handed the reigns of the Aztec program to Dutcher. Like May, this is Dutcher’s first trip to the Final Four.

Dan Hurley – UConn Huskies

Although this is Hurley’s first trip to the Final Four, the Huskies head coach comes from basketball royalty. Hurley played for Seton Hall.

Dan’s brother Bobby played for the Duke Blue Devils. Bobby Hurley won two titles while with the Blue Devils, once as a senior guard.

Jim Larranaga – Miami-FL Hurricanes

Saturday will be Jim Larranga’s second trip to the Final Four. While the HC for the men’s basketball program at George Mason, Larranga took the Patriots to the four teams tournament in 2006.

Larranga has the most experience of the coaches who are at the Final Four.

NCAA Tournament Teams – How They Got Here

Florida Atlantic Owls

FAU lost three games this season. The record proved the Owls were a potential elite team. The East Region winner beat 9-Memphis in game one, 16-Fairleigh Dickinson in game two, 4-Tennessee in game 3, and 3-Kansas State in the Elite Eight on their way to the final weekend.

San Diego State Aztecs

Many expected SDSU to struggle in their first game. But San Diego State beat Charleston. Then in the second round game, San Diego State dominated 13-Furman.

SDSU’s victory over 1-Alabama Crimson Tide was a game between two teams with different philosophies. The Aztecs’ mindset, and defense-first attitude, won out.

UConn Huskies

Connecticut provided one of history’s most amazing Elite Eight wins on Saturday night. The Huskies beat Gonzaga so severely in the game that almost every oddsmaker and sports betting software handicapper in the nation made the Huskies the men’s basketball chalk to cut down the nets in the championship game on April 3.

Miami-FL Hurricanes

Miami’s deep run to the Final Four began with a victory against Drake. Then in their game versus Indiana, Miami rolled.

Miami is a team that never quits. On Saturday, the Kansas City region winner hopes to keep it going versus the tournament favorite, the UConn Huskies.

9-Florida Atlantic Owls vs. 5-San Diego State Aztecs -2

When: Saturday, April 1 at 6:09 pm ET

Where: NRG Stadium, Houston, Texas

FAU was a Selection Sunday mystery; many believed the Conference USA winner would attract a 5 to 7-seed. But the Owls got a 9.

FAU is a team that thrives on three-point shooting. The Owls could be in some trouble on Saturday, though. The reason? FAU also turns the ball over, and the Aztecs are great at forcing turnovers.

Price per head agents will want to set max limits on an FAU win. PPH sportsbook agents should also use their layoff account if risky bets land on the Aztecs.

Bookie Software Agent Prediction: San Diego State 

5-Miami Hurricanes vs. 4-UConn Huskies -5.5

When: Saturday, April 1 at 6:09 pm ET

Where: NRG Stadium, Houston, Texas

UConn didn’t have to play against the 1-Kansas Jayhawks. Even if the Huskies took on Rock Chalk, and KU head coach Bill Self was on the sidelines, it’s doubtful UConn wouldn’t have won.

This season, the Huskies started the season hot. They cooled down in the middle of the season but ended the season playing great hoops.

Miami has to team to counter UConn’s greatness. Isaiah Wong matches up well with UConn guard Jordan Hawkins.

Forward Norchad Omier can contain Connecticut’s big Adama Sonogo. The Huskies winning this men’s basketball game isn’t a lock.

Miami is on a mission. 6′ 7″ guard Jordan Miller went 13-of-13 from the free throw line and 7-of-7 from the field against Texas.

Online bookie agent pick: Miami-FL Hurricanes

NCAA March Madness Tournament Title Game National Championship Prediction

5-Miami Hurricanes vs. 5-San Diego State Aztecs

When: Monday, April 3 at 6:20 pm ET

Both teams play excellent defense and have a great offense. Miami’s offense is better than San Diego State’s.

SDSU’s defense is better than Miami’s offense. The difference could come down to who wants it more. In that sense, it’s difficult to see a team that wants it more than the Miami Hurricanes.

The Canes shut down Houston guard Marcus Sasser in the Sweet 16. Miami rallied from 13 down versus favored Texas and their excellent guard Marcus Carr in the Elite Eight.

Jim Larranaga is one of the oldest and most well-respected coaches in college hoops. Larranaga and the Miami Hurricanes win the NCAA Men’s Final Four March Madness Tournament on April 3.
