Purple & Black vs. Bleed Green Prediction

One of the top three scorers in the league, Jacob Pullen looks to lead his team to the next round when Purple & Black takes on Bleed Green in the first of two Wichita region round of 32 matchups on today's slate.

Pullen (30ppg) isn't the only threat on the P&B squad, as the former Kansas State product has some solid supplemental scoring by his side in the form of Thomas Gipson II (15ppg) and Mike McGuirl (12ppg). All three will need to be on their game to advance, tonight.

Across the court from Pullen and co. is Bleed Green.

Bleed Green, is led by their big three of Shannon Shorter (22ppg), Brandon Jefferson (19ppg), and Jordan Stevens (16ppg). The squad also has a fourth piece that nearly averages a double-double in the form of Thomas Bell (six ppg, 10rpg).

AfterShocks vs. Air Raiders Prediction

The final game on tonight's four-game slate will see AfterShocks take on the Air Raiders.

The AfterShocks are all about balance, balance, balance. The team's top five scorers are as follows; Samaje Haynes (13ppg), Markis McDuffie (12ppg), Darral Willis Jr. (11ppg), Conner Frankamp (10ppg), and Rashard Kelly (nine ppg).

If the AfterShocks are to advance (as oddsmakers predict), they're going to need all hands on deck, tonight.

Standing across from the AfterShocks are the Air Raiders.

The Air Raiders boast perhaps the best 1-2 punch currently in the league in the form of Nornese Odiase (32ppg) and ShawnDre' Jones (32ppg). However, assuming Odiase and Jones come to play, if they're to pull the upset, they'll need some help from the likes of Zach Smith (eight ppg), Justin Gray (eight ppg), and Ben Coupet Jr. (seven ppg).

AfterShocks vs. Air Raiders Pick

Pick - Air Raiders (+175) (Bet $100 to win $175)
