After a tight start to the First Four, Fairleigh Dickinson and Texas Southern try to match yesterday’s slate for an opportunity to face No. 1 seed Purdue.
And according to the Action Network’s datasets, sharp and big-moneyed bettors heavily favor one side of this matchup over the other.
In addition, our proprietary algorithms favor this side of the spread, too.
This isn’t Texas Southern’s first rodeo. The Tigers were forced to duke it out in the First Four in three of the last four tournaments, winning in each of them before bowing out to the No. 1 seed in the following round. Still, there’s pedigree in this program during the First Four.
The one year Texas Southern didn’t make it? Fairleigh Dickinson did, taking the Tigers’ spot in the First Four and making it out themselves.
The advanced metrics slightly favor Texas Southern, which ranks roughly 20 to 30 spots ahead of Fairleigh Dickinson, depending on your dataset of choice.
Does that indicate a fair spread? Or are the sharps and models fading public sentiments and heading in the other direction?
