    Kansas State @ Wake Forest Preview

    It's the Big 12 vs. the ACC in the first play-in game of this tournament featuring teams from power conferences and there are no shortage of opinions on this contest. Oddsmakers opened this line at a pick'em late Sunday when the matchup was announced and between then and now we've already seen both sides become at least 1-point favourites at some point.

    We may yet see some further movement as tip-off approaches but for now it's the Kansas State Wildcats that are laying the chalk. As the action is basically split on this game, where can you find an edge? Well, there is no denying both teams played some very tough opponents in their respective conferences, but Kansas State is in much better form at the moment.

    They upset Baylor (a #3 seed in the Tournament) and were one shot away from beating West Virginia (a #4 seed) in the Big 12 Tournament. Had K-State gone on to win that game they would  have been in the final and most likely avoided this play-in contest. Kansas State is on a 4-0 ATS run overall entering tonight and they should extend that to five straight. 


    KANSAS STATE -1.5 (-110) BET NOW

    NCAA Tournament First Four Betting Picks

    The K-State/Wake Forest isn't the only play-in game on the basketball court tonight as two lesser known teams in Mount St Mary's and New Orleans battle for one of the final #16 slots. A #16 seed has never beaten a #1, but for these smaller schools just getting the exposure on national television is a big deal for their programs. There are two more play-in games on Wednesday night as well, so let's briefly look at some solid wagers for the next 48 hours.

    • Mount St Marys ML (+110) - Got to roll with the better defensive team in a spot like this, and the plus-money price tag on the ML is a nice bonus.
    • Kansas State/Wake Forest Over 148.5 (-110) - Wake will need their offensive skills (82.7 pts/game) to show up to threaten K-State, and Wake is also 11-0 O/U in their last 11 as an underdog.
    • USC -2.5 (-110) - The Trojans are only the 4th Pac-12 team in the tournament and they've got to go the hard route just to get to Friday's play. But they've been through many more tough tests compared to Providence and should win this game by 6+ points.
