2013 Final Four: NCAA Tournament Over/Under Defensive Predictions
No. 1 Louisville: 59.0 PPG Allowed
The Cardinals’ defense has been solid through the team’s first four games of the NCAA Tournament as they now prepare for a Final Four contest against No. 9 Wichita State. Louisville had allowed over 60 points in each of their past two contests and you’d expect things to be even more difficult now that we have reached the Final Four.
Louisville Over/Under – OVER
No. 9 Wichita State: 62.3 PPG Allowed
The Shockers have only 70 points only once during the tournament, but Louisville’s attack is among the best in this year’s field. Wichita State must withstand the Cardinals’ run ability and slow down their transition game if they have chance to advance to the National Championship.
Wichita State Over/Under – OVER
No. 4 Michigan: 63.3 PPG Allowed
There is an outlier in Michigan’s defensive statistic considering their come from behind overtime victory over No. 1 Kansas in the Sweet 16. Aside from the 83 points they gave up to the Jayhawks, Michigan’s defense has been solid and that should be no real surprise considering the conference that they represent.
Michigan Over/Under – UNDER
No. 4 Syracuse: 45.8 PPG Allowed
The Orange have pieced together the best defensive run in the history of the NCAA Tournament through the Elite 8 round. Syracuse has only allowed 183 points through the first four games and as they enter the Final Four it has become clear that their opponents simply cannot figure out the lengthy and athleticism of the 2-3 zone.
Syracuse Over/Under — OVER
