Final Four: Duke vs. Butler Odds and Predictions

Even though the Final Four matchup between Duke and West Virginia is not over, we are going to take a stab at predicting what the line would be in a potential championship game showdown between Butler and Duke.

Even though the Butler and Michigan State game was anything but an offensive shoot-out, Butler seemed not to score almost the entire second half but still managed to pull off a victory. As of right now, Duke is up by 12 with under 10 minutes to go mainly on a 3-point barrage that would make an old time "Double Dribble" master jealous.

A mixture of a low scoring game from Butler and the fact Duke has 60+ with 9 minutes to go, the total most likely will open around 131 or so. In regards to the opening line, we can see Duke being around a 6 point favorite to start the action off.

With tons of time left, anything can still happen in the Duke and West Virginia game, which would obviously alter the opening lines, but Duke -6 and 131 is our call.

What is your prediction for a Duke and Butler final?

  • Before reading this, 6 popped in my head---JD. Then I see 6 was your number also. Great minds; I guess.

    Bet the farm on Duke--------10 pt win.

  • HAHA .. this is also true

  • Plus, Butler has that horrible mustache. Man, that is bad.

  • I like Duke.. with Howard listed as questionable, they will have no answer inside...

  • I was close, -6.5 and 130 is the official opener.
