The road is finally coming to an end.
The #2 Villanova Wildcats and #1 North Carolina Tar Heels get set to play for it all on Monday night in Houston.
Villanova and North Carolina have put on shooting display after shooting display in this tournament as they have been the most consistent offenses.
#2 Villanova Wildcats
The Villanova Wildcats put on a show in the Final Four.
Villanova ran into a hot Oklahoma team that features the top player in the nation in Buddy Hield. Villanova suffocated the Sooners shooters and put the clamps down with a 24-0 run in the 2nd half to pull away. Nova’s performance was by far one of the best in Final Four history.
After holding the red hot Jayhawks to 59 points, Villanova one upped their performance against Oklahoma holding them to 51 points. On the year Villanova has held the opposition to just 63.3 points per game.
Josh Hart continued to do what he’s done all season long as he’s been the most consistent player for the Wildcats. Hart put up 23 points, 8 rebounds, and 4 assists in the win over the Sooners and has 4 double digit performances here in the tourney. Look for him to be a giant key as Villanova will need him to crash the boards and avoid allowing 2nd and 3rd chances for UNC.
#1 North Carolina Tar Heels
North Carolina has had zero problems with their offense here in March.
The Tar Heels lowest point total put up in this NCAA tourney has been 83. They’ve surpassed the 100 point mark one time as well in a 101 point showing against the Hoosiers. This Tar Heels team has been on point thanks in large part to their shooting behind the arc, along with their ability to create 2nd chances.
North Carolina out-rebound yet another opponent as they grabbed 43 to Syracuse’s 31.
Neutral courts have been a thing of beauty for them as well. The Tar Heels have gone a perfect 12-0 SU while going 9-2-1 ATS in that span. They’ve outscored the opposition by an average of 84-68.
Urgency and pace is the way UNC plays and they’ll look to dictate that style of play against the Villanova team who is so good at closing out on shooters.

Free Villanova Wildcats vs. North Carolina Tar Heels CBB Prediction:
North Carolina is going to be tough to beat. This team is playing extremely well and with their ability to not just hit the 3, but to also crash the boards, they create so many chances offensively.
For Villanova to keep pace here, closing out on shooters along with limiting the Tar Heels 2nd chance points is an absolute must.
4* Free Championship Betting Pick: North Carolina -2.5
When it’s all said and done, it’s the Tar Heels who have the advantage. They’re too dangerous offensively and with the rhythm they’ve been in, it’s just too much for Villanova to handle.
