But, before the 64-team field can be set, the final two First Four games must be played in Dayton.
- N.C. Central vs. Texas Southern (6:40 p.m ET)
- Syracuse vs. Arizona State (9:10 p.m. ET)
Each matchup features a squad that plays at a slow pace. How can bettors profit? We’ve identified a 200-game trend that is 59% ATS with a play on each contest.
