Here’s what we like in the First Four (6:40 p.m. ET):
[$35] SE Missouri +3.5 vs. Texas A&M-CC: The Redhawks have covered four straight spreads. And Texas A&M-CC will play its first game without starting PG Terrion Murdix, a spellcheck special.
[$25] SEMO-A&M Over 156.5: It’s a huge total because of the teams’ productive, speedy offenses. But we’ll take it and hope they make it rain ☔.
[$25] Mississippi State -2.5 vs. Pitt: The Bulldogs bark on ‘D,’ and Pitt may be without starting center Federiko Federiko (knee), a game-time decision.
[$15] Pitt-Mississippi State Under 133.5: See above. The Bulldogs defense rates sixth in KenPom.
