The winner takes on the winner of the other Final Four game between the No. 4 Kentucky Wildcats and No. 3 Connecticut Huskies in the NCAA Championship Game on Monday.
The Rams (28-11 SU, 18-20 ATS, 12-6 CAA) won their fifth straight when they stunned the No. 1 seed Kansas Jayhawks 71-61 in the Elite Eight round last Sunday. VCU covered as an 11-point underdog.
The Bulldogs (27-9 SU, 19-14-1 ATS, 13-5 Horizon) beat the No. 2 seed Florida Gators 74-71 in their Elite Eight matchup, cashing as a 4-point underdog.
Butler has been of the hottest teams in College Basketball for two months. It’s hard to believe that in early February, the Bulldogs were 14-9 SU and 6-5 in the Horizon League and looked like they would be fortunate to make the NIT Tournament. Since then, however, Butler is 13-0 SU and have beaten the No. 1 Pittsburgh Panthers and the No. 4 Wisconsin Badgers, among others, at the NCAA Tournament.
