The AAC is very top heavy this year and neither of these two teams are in that top group.
Texas A&M looks to follow up their dramatic comeback with a date against the Oklahoma Sooners in the Sweet 16.
Buddy Hield will look to continue his dominance as he tries to put the Sooners on his back and lead them to an Elite 8 appearance.
South Florida Bulls
The South Florida Bulls have next to no history as a basketball school. They are not adding much this season either.
They have yet to win a game in the AAC, a league of medium toughness, and only one of their losses has been by less than 10 points. They are just not in many ballgames.
Top scorer Geno Thorpe, 13ppg, is a decen player but he has missed the last couple of game due to injury. You might not have noticed but make sure of his status before you think about this game at all.
He and Troy Holston are the only player who average in double figures, giving the Bulls a reasonably potent backcourt though both are inefficient, shooting less than 40%.
Tulio Da Silva leads the team in rebounds but he is just an athletic wing, not a banger. Malik Fitts provides hope for more of a presence up front in the future.
USF has just one road win, at Troy, this season. They are a bad team but there might be some hope for the future with a roster that can improve.
Compared to USF Temple is college hoops royalty. They are generally pretty good but this is not an especially strong Owls squad.
This season they are mostly winning the games they are supposed to and this one would definitely count. Usually the Owls are a tough defense first team but this seasonthey are soft by comparison.
Shizz Alston Jr. is a local kid who has grown from 2ppg as a frosh to lead the team at 14ppg this season. He and Obi Enechionya, a true big who can shoot, can be tough to guard.
This should be an easy win for Temple but they could get caught looking ahead to a game with SMUmid week. If they want to get into the tournament they just have to keep working to find their best game.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Over is 11-4 in USF last 15 road games.
- Over is 18-6 in TEM last 24 overall.
- TEM are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Sun. games.
Free South Florida Bulls vs. Temple Owls NCAAB Prediction:
There are a lot of points to play with here and that always makes me nervous.
At the same time the only play here is on the home Owls. Obviously they are the better team and this late in the year is not the time to start backing bad teams while hoping they are going to be less bad for a day.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Temple -16
I am not seeing a lot of value in this game. It is Super Bowl Sunday so maybe look in a difference direction.
