North Carolina Tar Heels DFS Snapshot

Armando Bacot finished with 20 points (8-15 FG, 4-9 FT), 22 rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 35 minutes during Sunday's 69-49 win over Saint Peter's. It's undoubtedly been an incredible run for St. Peter's, but that progress halted Sunday when the Peacocks ran into an All-ACC and honorable mention All-American center. It was the 29th double-double of the year for Bacot, who has tied Tim Duncan for the most in a single season. Bacot will also break Duncan's single-season rebounding record by bringing his total up to 475. Now, Bacot will look to stay out of foul trouble as he's tasked with guarding Mark Williams when the Tar Heels take on Duke in Saturday's Final Four matchup.

Duke Blue Devils DFS Snapshot

Paolo Banchero recorded 16 points (4-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, one block and one steal in 38 minutes during Saturday's 78-69 victory over Arkansas. Banchero has scored 15-plus points in each of his four Tournament appearances and should continue to be a key figure for Duke in the Final Four ahead of an all-ACC matchup against North Carolina on Saturday.

Final Four Betting Prediction

The Tar Heels are a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall, are 7-1 against the number in their last eight games coming off a win and are 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 games versus a team with a winning record. The Blue Devils, meanwhile, are 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 NCAA Tournament games and have failed to cover in seven of their last 10 games when facing an opponent with a winning percentage above .600.
