Northern Iowa vs. Texas A&M Pick
Will No. 11 Northern Iowa be able to pull off another upset when it faces No. 3 Texas A&M tonight at 7:40PM ET?
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Texas A&M is favored in this game, as the Aggies are getting odds of -7 points against Northern Iowa. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 127.5 points. These two meet as part of the West Region today from Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Texas A&M is 27-8 overall, 5-2 on a neutral floor and 16-12-2 against the spread. Northern Iowa is 23-12 overall, 6-1 on a neutral floor and 20-13-1 against the spread. UNI had a 75-72 win over Texas on Friday to get to this game while the Aggies beat Green Bay 92-65 on Friday.
Is Northern Iowa a fluke or they for real? The Panthers took out Texas on Friday, in a game they led most of the way. But they needed a Paul Jesperson 60-footer at the buzzer to win. Now they face another team from the state of Texas in the Aggies. UNI has won a game in three straight NCAA Tournaments and they are looking for a second Sweet 16 berth so success in the tournaments is not a foreign concept for the Panthers. They play strong enough defense and have enough weapons led by guard Wes Washpun and Jesperson that an outright win is possible. This is team that has already defeated Iowa State and North Carolina this season.
