2010 NCAA Championship Betting on Duke-Butler

2010 NCAA Championship betting on Duke-Butler appears to be heavily impacted by news that Bulldogs.

starting center Matt Howard may not play.

The Bulldogs' trainer Ryan Galloy is quoted by ESPN as saying that Howard is suffering from a mild concussion and will be examined again later today - many outlets are reporting that he is a game-time decision.

Howard's head hit the floor in Butler's 52-50 victory over the Michigan State Spartans in the Final Four on Saturday and he took an elbow to the head later in the game; the Bulldogs covered as 1.5-point faves.

The last time Duke and Butler met was Jan. 2003 and the Blue Devils covered as 14-point point faves in an 80-60 victory.

Butler was hovering around +8 at Sportsbetting.com (see website here).  This line opened at -6 ½.  2010 NCAA Championship betting on Duke-Butler was quite lopsided in favor of the Blue Devils at around 70 percent.
