The madness comes to an end tonight. While we're disappointed to see the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament come to a close, we're ecstatic to see which team will be cutting down the nets in New Orleans!

The North Carolina Tar Heels will meet the Kansas Jayhawks at the Ceasars Superdome tonight. These two teams had battled through some of the top competition that men's college hoops has to offer. It's hard to believe how quickly the tourney went this past month.

The Jayhawks are seeking their first men's college basketball title since 2008. UNC on the other hand is looking to secure its seventh championship in school history and its first since 2017.

From the First Four games, to the Round of 64, to the Round of 32, to the Sweet 16, to the Elite 8, to the final and final to the last two, we made it. So what does that mean for betting purposes? Let's have a look using one of our favorite betting tools, our EDGE Finder.

Based on the results of our Edge Finder, it's clear that UNC is trending in the right direction. It's also clear that the Tar Heels have been more profitable recently than the Jay Hawks. That's probably due to the Jayhawks being favorites in almost every matchup they've had. When that's the case, there's isn't much room to make a lot of money or value to be had.
