2019 College Basketball Tournament: Final Four April 04, 2019 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, the stage is all set for the College Basketball Tournament's Final Four at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The last four remaining college basketball team will vie for the prestigious seat at the National Championship title game on April 8.

The first game will start at 8:09PM ET between #5 Auburn against # 1 Virginia. Auburn defeated Kentucky in overtime in the Elite 8 round, 77-71. Virginia was also an 80-75 OT winner against Purdue. Virginia is known as a very efficient team from offense to defense. But Auburn is a different team, they are known to create chaos to disrupt an opponent's team chemistry.

It was evident when they leveled one by one the likes of Kansas, North Carolina and Kentucky to reach the Final Four.

The next game will follow next at 8:49PM ET between #3 Texas Tech and #2 Michigan State. Both teams rise to the occasion during their Elite 8 round matches. Texas Tech delivered a crushing 75-69 blow to Gonzaga while Michigan State pulled a 68-67 cliffhanger against Zion Williamson-led Duke.

Texas Tech and Michigan State mirror each other in terms of offense and defense. It will be a coach's game wherein veteran Michigan State coach Tom Izzo will be pitted against unheralded Texas Tech coach Chris Beard.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Virginia and Michigan State as the favorites to win their respective Final Four matches and moved to the National Championship game on April 8.
