The round of 64 starts on Thursday all across the country. One of those games is a 5/12 match up between the Minnesota Golden Gophers and the MTSU Blue Raiders.
These are both teams who can put up a lot of points in an early. This is the first match up between the two teams since 2012.
MTSU Blue Raiders
The MTSU Blue Raiders have been here before and know how to win in the NCAA Tournament. In last years tournament they were the bracket busters beating Michigan State as a 15 seed in the first round. Although they graduated a few seniors this team is mostly the same.
They finished the regular season in the top 25 of the USA Today coaches poll for the first time in their history. To win this game it’s going to come down to the defensive side of the ball. The Gophers can put up a lot of points in a hurry and they need to try and slow that down.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
What a turnaround this season has been for the Minnesota Golden Gophers. They were rewarded for playing a tough non conference schedule with a five seed in this tournament, but they did suffer a huge loss during the Big Ten tournament.
Akeem Springs, their graduate transfer and sharp shooter from beyond the arc tore his Achilles. With the Gophers only going eight deep before the injury, it really makes them need to get more production from their starters.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Under is 9-2 in MTU last 11 non-conference games
- MTU are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 Thu. games.
- Over is 8-2 in MINN last 10 overall.

This a very popular game that people are thinking the Gophers will be upset in. But I just don’t see it.
