Top 2022 NCAA Tournament Final Four predictions

One of the model’s strongest Final Four picks is that the over hits in Kansas vs. Villanova. Kansas wants to turn this game into a track meet against a slow-paced Villanova squad. The Jayhawks are No. 40 nationally in average possession length and rank seventh in KenPom’s adjusted offensive efficiency ratings. They have strong shooting numbers and tend to clean up their misses on the offensive glass.

Villanova has been maximizing its possessions with a low turnover rate and the top free throw shooting percentage in college basketball (83.0). SportsLine’s model has these teams combining for 145 points, which is why the over is hitting in 80 percent of simulations.

How to make 2022 March Madness picks

The model has also made the call on who will win and cover in both 2022 NCAA Tournament Final Four matchups. It has strong picks against the spread, saying one team covers 60 percent of the time. You can only get every pick for both games at SportsLine.
