Miami Betting Preview

Miami comes into this game with a 28-7 record overall and they have gone 21-14 against the spread. In the last game against Houston, Miami scored 89 points and that was enough to win by 14 points. Houston’s defense was strong all season, but Miami’s offense was even better putting up the 89 points. Nijel Pack was the top player for Miami finishing with 26 points, four rebounds, and two assists. The Hurricanes are averaging 79.4 points while their defense is giving up 71.7 points per game. Wong has been the top player averaging 16.3 points while shooting 44.7 percent from the field and 38.8 percent from behind the three-point line. 

Texas Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is Texas who sits with a 29-8 record overall and they have gone 19-17-1 against the spread. On Friday Texas faced off against the Xavier Musketeers and they were able to secure the 83-71 victory. Tyrese Hunter was the top player for Texas scoring 19 points. Dylan Disu was hurt during the game though and now he’s questionable for this game with a foot injury. Texas is averaging 77.9 points while their defense is giving up 67.3 points per game. Marcus Carr has been the top player this season averaging 15.8 points while shooting 42.9 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from behind the three point line. 

Miami vs Texas Trends

Texas is 7-0-1 against the spread in their last eight games. The under is 7-1 in the Longhorns last eight games. The under is 6-1 in the Longhorns last seven games. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Houston’s defense was elite all seaosn and Miami just dropped 89 points against them. Texas also has a strong defense, but I also expect Miami is going to run up the score again here. This tournament has been all about the upsets, and it’s going to be no different in this game. You aren’t going to need the points here. Back the Hurricanes on the money line. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
