Wichita St. Shockers vs. La Salle Explorers Gambling Prediction & CBB Preview

La Salle vs Wichita State March Madness Betting!

I have long admired the Shockers program and I thought they would play well but I just didn’t see how they would beat Gonzaga. Even if they were able to shorten the game a little bit and play their guts out I still thought they would come up just a little bit short.

Wichita State

I was wrong and must admit that my bracket was completely busted as a result. Now it is exciting to see how far the Shockers can go. Especially with them now facing off against another unlikely winner – La Salle.

One fun thing about the NCAA tournament is how we get to know the players on the winning teams. Before the tourney began I was pretty familiar with forward Carl Hall but didn’t know a thing about guard Ron Baker, whose three point shooting helped sink the Zags.

The redshirt freshman missed a chunk of the middle of the season due to injury and recovered from an awful shooting game against Pitt to push the Shockers to the Sweet Sixteen. Can he push them even further?

Back to back upset wins – but how will the Shockers fare in a favourite role? The Shockers are certainly the more accomplished team that has had the tougher road to get to this point but sometimes it is easier to defy expectations than live up to them.

I would wait a day on this one to see which way the market goes.

La Salle

The La Salle Explorers are making it look like using that First Four game as a tuneup just might be a strategic advantage. [ad-6571516]

They have upset victories in three straight games now making the Sweet Sixteen for the first time in more than a generation. Wichita State will prove to be a formidable opponent but no more so that Kansas State was.

The Explorers will look to the same formula for victory. Why should they change. It is working.

The Explorers play small and so far that hasn’t been fully exploited defensively. WSU has decent size but La Salle should once again be able to survive. This means that it could easily come down to shot making and the Explorers have had the knack for scoring just enough to win.

Against Ole Miss leading scorer Ramon Galloway made 6 3 pointers on the way to 24 points. He is averaging better than 20ppg in 3 tourney games.

Who has more magic left?

The Explorers are definitely the team that is least likely of the two to still be here but the fact that there is just a 4 point spread shows that the perception on these teams is not all that far apart.It is hard not to like the Explorers grabbing the points.

Even if they don’t win, during the season they showed an ability to keep many games very close.

Spread Pick: Wichita State
O/U Pick: Over
Score Prediction: Wichita State 78 – La Salle 68
