Southeast Missouri State vs Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Prediction

Texas A&M-Corpus Christi 77, Southeast Missouri State 76

This game pits two of the worst teams in the entire bracket against one another. However, this should be a very close game all the way through as both of these teams are built quite similarly.

Texas A&M-Corpus Christi has done more winning this season, but Southeast Missouri State has the Cinderella story effect in their favor. The Redhawks’ trio of guards in Phillip Russell, Chris Harris, and Israel Barnes will need to keep up their offensive pace of the past few weeks if they want any chance of winning this one outright.

For Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, the Islanders will need to put together enough defensive stops to counter it if they do not want to be upset. Their offense is relatively outstanding, but they have shown an inability to defend the 3-pointer at times throughout the season.

Southeast Missouri State vs Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Best Bets

Southeast Missouri State +4 (-110) | DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Southeast Missouri State has all the momentum working in their favor as they won their conference tournament in convincing fashion despite not being viewed as one of the favorites.

While I do not expect them to win this game outright, I do like the value to cover by taking the points in what should be a very close game.

Over 153.5 Total Points (-110) | DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

Despite my final score prediction for this game resting around the betting total, I like this game to go Over 153.5. This is a tough bar to clear, but with the fast-paced nature of March Madness and the offensive potential of both of these teams mixed in with lackluster defenses, there is potential for this game to go well Over the betting total.

Southeast Missouri State vs Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Same Game Parlay

Southeast Missouri State vs Texas A&M-Corpus Christi SGP (+265) | DraftKings Sportsbook

WAGER: 1 Unit

  • Southeast Missouri State +4 (-110)
  • Over 153.5 Total Points (-110)

As previously mentioned, I like Southeast Missouri State to cover in this spot and the Over to hit in a close game. There is solid value on this parlay, and a few more picks can be added to enhance it as you please.

However, I believe this is a good baseline for a same-game parlay for this matchup.
