Clash of the Sharpshooters: Utah State vs. TCU

The first round of March Madness promises a high-scoring affair as the potent Utah State Aggies (No. 8) face the TCU Horned Frogs (No. 9) on Friday, March 22nd at 9:55 PM ET on TBS.

Aggies Seek Tournament Breakthrough

Utah State enters the tournament with a chip on their shoulder. Despite a #20 national ranking and a 27-6 record, they feel slighted by their #8 seed. This, coupled with their 0-4 record in recent NCAA appearances, fuels their hunger for that elusive first tourney win. Their efficient offense, led by big man Neemias Queta, could pose problems for TCU.

Can TCU Handle the Pressure?

TCU’s at-large bid signifies a solid season, but a quarterfinal loss to Houston exposed some vulnerabilities. They’ll need star guard Mike Miles to be at his best, and their outside shooting will be crucial in breaking down Utah State’s defense.

Key Factors

  • Inside-Out Balance: Utah State’s Queta vs. TCU’s Kevin Samuel in the paint will be a battle to watch.
  • Three-Point Duel: Both teams rank highly in outside shooting. Hot hands from deep could swing the game.
  • Experience Edge: Utah State’s recent tournament appearances may give them a slight advantage in handling the March Madness pressure.

Betting Insights

  • The Spread: TCU -4 at Betonline and Wagerweb
  • High-Scoring Potential: The over/under suggests a shootout. Bettors might lean towards the over which is 151

Our Pick

We think Utah State is a live dog here. They’ll be out to prove they are deserving of that #20 ranking and in March Madness, there’s nothing better than a capable underdog.

Utah State +4
