Conference USA Tournament Preview

I looked hard at Charlotte and MTSU to try to make cases for some longer shots to make a run here. They both have their flaws, Charlotte struggles with offensive rebounding and getting to the line, Middle Tennessee State turns the ball over a bit too much and can’t make free throws. In the end I couldn’t pick one over the other, which is a huge problem since they play each other tomorrow. That should be a closely lined game and could go either way, so I’ll be sticking with the top three here.

The same issue arises for North Texas and UAB: They will more than likely play each other in the semifinals. UNT was able to sweep UAB this year, but it was a combined four points and two overtimes. I’ll still give North Texas the edge seeing how the price is a bit longer, they have the best defense, the player of the year and it’s like a half hour commute over to the arena (so long as they don’t cut over through Hackberry). As the golf betting community says, they’ll be sleeping in their own beds. They went 4-0 versus possible quarterfinal opponents this year.

Conference USA Tournament Prediction

Fading the team getting the at-large no matter what with the school on the other side of Lewisville Lake.

My Bet: North Texas MEAN GREEN +300
