With the fourth-seeded Virginia Cavaliers heading into the NCAA Tournament as the regular season co-champions of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), they have plenty of experience playing in the big dance and are primed to make a deep run this year.
On the other hand, the 13th-seeded Furman Paladins are making their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1980, but the Cavaliers have the clear advantage here. The Cavaliers are led by veteran star Mike Bothwell, who is averaging 18 points, 3.5 rebounds and three assists in 34 games this season. He is also shooting an impressive 51.9% from the field and 82.9% from the free throw line. With the experienced Bothwell leading the Cavaliers, it is hard to see the Paladins keeping up.
Virginia is also one of the most solid teams in the tournament when it comes to both offense and defense. The Cavaliers rank 11th nationally in offensive efficiency and 12th in defensive efficiency, according to KenPom.com. Furman, on the other hand, ranks only 73rd in offensive efficiency and 94th in defensive efficiency. This discrepancy in offensive and defensive strength will be a major factor in the upcoming game, and it looks to be in Virginia's favor.
So if you're looking for a surefire bet to make some money on the NCAA Tournament, the Virginia Cavaliers are the way to go. With their strong record, veteran leader, and superior offensive and defensive efficiency, the Cavaliers are in the perfect position to take home the win against Furman.
