FanDuel’s Final Four Prop Bets
Combined Total Points Scored In Both NCAA Men’s Tournament Games
- Over O 285.5 -112
- Under U 285.5 -112
FanDuel has the total for Kansas-Villanova set at 132.5; for North Carolina and Duke—151. Villanova has been winning relatively low-scoring games thanks to its defense; only one team has scored over 60 against them during the NCAA Tournament. Kansas has been getting the job done more on the offensive end, but the Jayhawks are not too shabby on defense. Villanova’s defense will slow Kansas down a little, but the question is whether the offense can do its part after losing Justin Moore to an injury.
As for Duke and North Carolina, the Blue Devils have averaged 80.1 points/game this year; North Carolina—78.1. The Blue Devils have remained around their season average throughout the Tournament (78, 85, 78, and 78). North Carolina’s offense exploded right out of the gate with 95, followed it up with 93 in overtime, but then had just 73 and 69 in the last two games.
There is no reason to think these two can’t, at the least, match their season averages. But will Duke-North Carolina score enough to make up for Villanova-Kansas likely going under its total? It’s possible, but don’t bank on it– go with the under.
Game With The Most Total Points In Both NCAA Men’s Tournament Games

Team To Score The Most Points In Both NCAA Men’s Tournament Games
- Duke -110
- North Carolina +200

Villanova will be down one of its better offensive players in Justin Moore and playing a Kansas team with a capable defense. Without Moore, the Villanova defense will be tough to score on. As for Duke and North Carolina— both are solid offensive teams that could put up 80+ points on any given night. The Blue Devils have been more consistent during the NCAA Tournament, but the Tar Heels put up 94 on Duke earlier in the year.

Pablo Banchero is the leading scorer for the team with the best offense and will face the worst defense among the remaining teams. However, the Blue Devils like to share on the offensive end of the court. In three of four Tournament games, five players scored in double figures; four did so in the fourth game.
Banchero had 23 and 13 against North Carolina during the regular season.
Of the field, RJ Davis and Caleb Love have had the highest individual scoring efforts in the NCAA Tournament with 30 points, followed by Brady Manek with 28. All three (and Armando Bacot) scored in the 20s in the Tar Heels’ win over Duke, but only Manek did so in the loss. However, North Carolina has had a different leading scorer in all four Tournament games.
Kansas will be facing a solid Villanova defense; Remy Martin has been the leading scorer in three of four Tournament games. For Villanova, Jermaine Samuels has been the leading scorer.
