Butler vs Duke Odds and Predictions – 2010 NCAA Basketball National Championship Betting
Vegas odds for the Butler Bulldogs vs Duke Blue Devils 2010 NCAA Basketball National Championship Game on Monday, April 4, 2010(9:17 PM EST CBS) are now posted on NSAwins.com and vegas oddsmakers have listed Duke a -7 point favorite with the total set at 129.5. Many experts and television hypemen are already calling this a game of “David vs Goliath”, but that is far from the real story here. Duke(34-5) is clearly the favorite and looked like an eventual national champion in ousting a very good West Virginia team 78-57 in the Final Four semifinals saturday night. The #1 seeded Blue Devils will be looking to win their 4th National Championship in school history and have dominated the field thus far having won 4 of their 5 games by 13 points or more – with Baylor being the lone team to lose to Duke by single digits, 78-71. Butler(33-4) enters monday night’s championship game with the oppurtunity to not only win the school’s 1st ever National Championship but also do it in their home city of Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium, which is just 6 miles from the Butler campus. The #5 seeded Bulldogs are riding a 25-game winning streak after surviving a dog fight versus Michigan State 52-50 in the Final Four semifinals saturday. Butler has allowed just 55.2 points per game in it’s five-game NCAA Tournament run to the title game with no team getting out of the 50’s. They are winning with defense and will try to keep Duke in a slowed down, half court game. Duke has scored 68 or more points in all five of their tournament games so far and will look to get the pace and tempo more to their liking. It should be a helluva National Championship game with both teams well coached, well disciplined and worthy of cutting down the nets. NSAwins.com’s expert handicapper Steve Kendall likes the 2010 National Championship Game to play UNDER the total of 129.5.
