Bet Texas Southern +27 Because…
Texas Southern rides a 9-game winning streak into the NCAA Tournament. The Tigers have won all sorts of ways. They beat Alcorn State 94 to 88 on March 2. On March 11, the Tigers beat Alcorn State 55 to 53. Texas Southern’s ability to play multiple styles could help them keep this game under the number.
Bet North Carolina -27 Because…
North Carolina is hungry. The Tar Heels had the rival Duke Blue Devils on the ropes in the ACC Tournament. North Carolina sat on a 13-point lead. Then, leader Joel Berry II got his fourth foul. That opened the door for the Blue Devils to climb back into the game. The Tar Heels are revved up for the NCAA Tournament.
Texas Southern Vs UNC Pick & Final Score Prediction
This is a 1 seed versus 16 seed match up that favors the 1 seed in every possible way. Texas Southern didn’t play enough quality teams in the SWAC to prepare them for what’s in store versus North Carolina.
The Tar Heels were a three-point shot away from winning the NCAA Tournament last season. This Tar Heels’ team, led by Berry II, is desperate to wash away the taste that remains from last year’s Final Four Championship loss.
I am betting North Carolina to dominate Texas Southern.
