First Four Free Betting Pick USC VS Providence

First Four Free Betting Pick USC VS Providence

USC -2.5  O/U 140.5

The First Four games also known as the play-in game seems like a game no team wants to play. That’s not necessarily true though when you consider teams that have to play in these games are lucky to just be in the tournament. The two 16 seed first four games are meaningless in the grand scheme of the tournament but the 11 seed games are always interesting. At least one of the two winners of the 11 seed games have gone on to win their next game against the 6 seed including VCU in 2011 that went from the first four to the final four. Both USC and Providence have a very good chance to get out of the first weekend and make it to the sweet 16 if they can just win this first game. In fact USC has already beaten SMU this year, the team who awaits the winner. 

For This RideTheHotHand.com Free pick we’re going after the total of 140. We don’t care about their over/under records this year (Both around .500 in case you were wondering). This pick is all about the opposing styles and the magnitude of the game. USC wants to run and play this game in the high 70’s. Providence wants to play tough defense and slow the game down. Usually when there are two contrasting styles like that, the team that slows it down gets their wish. You add that on to the nerves the players are going to be feeling along with knowing they can both beat SMU next round this game is going to be a possession by possession battle. 5 of the 6 First Four games involving 11 seeds the last 3 years have gone UNDER, with all of them failing to break 140. The winner of this game won’t break 70 points. THE PICK: UNDER 140.5
