Here’s what we like in tonight’s First Four (6:40 p.m. ET):
[$20] Fairleigh Dickinson +2.5 vs. Texas Southern: The Tigers’ lackluster offense can’t keep pace with the Knights’ potent attack, which averages 8.4 more PPG.
[$15] FDU-TSU Under 147.5: Both teams went well below this total in each of their last two games, so don’t expect a shootout.
[$40] Arizona State -2 vs. Nevada: The Sun Devils will muzzle the slumping Wolf Pack with their significant rebounding edge (+3.3 RPG) and elite defense (15th-lowest FG% allowed).
[$25] ASU-Nevada Under 135: Both teams rank middle of the pack in scoring but are in the top third for fewest points allowed, setting up a defensive battle.
