The Nerd Team vs Brown & White Prediction

The Nerd Team vs Brown & White Where to Watch and Start Time

Time: 5:00 PM EST

Where to Watch: ESPN

If you're unfamiliar, TBT is a basketball tournament consisting of former college athletes that are competing for $1 million. The Nerd Team is led by Tyler Nelson, who is making his return this year, after a strong performance last year. They were one and done losing 88-82 as Nelson went for 24 points in that contest. If they're going to have a chance today against Brown & White, then he will need to show out again.

Brown & White is made up of former players from St. Bonaventure and is coached by Dave Moore who is the assistant to Mark Schmidt and Bona. We can't possibly back a team called The Nerds. Give me the former St. Bonaventure guys on the moneyline in this matchup.

Purple & Black vs. Lone Star Legends Prediction

Purple & Black vs. Lone Star Legends Where to Watch and Start Time

Time: 7:00 PM EST

Where to Watch: ESPN

Purple & Black is made up of alumni from Kansas State. Jacob Pullen, Henry Walker, and Michael Beasley will lead this team. Beasley, a former second overall pick from 2008 spent 11 seasons in the NBA playing for the Heat, Timberwolves, Knicks, Bucks, and Lakers. Now, he will take his talent to TBT basketball. Although looking at the injury report he may not be healthy enough to go.

Purple & Black are heavy favorites over the Lone Star Legends but with a name like that and the logo they have they can't possibly be overlooked. This is like when you let your girlfriend fill out a bracket for March Madness and they go off of names and uniforms. I am no better in this spot and getting this logo and jersey combination for +185 feels like a steal. Plus, the Michael Beasley injury thing. That has to play a factor with a former NBA guy being out. Give me the underdog Legends.
