John Hyslop shares his play for Texas A&M-Corpus Christi vs Texas Southern to get us started for March Madness.

Texas A&M-Corpus Christi vs Texas Southern Prediction: Texas Southern Starts the Madness

At 6:40 pm ET tonight on TruTV, the madness will begin. If I were you, I would go ahead and get an idea of where TruTV is on your television. I have YouTubeTV so it took a second to scroll down the guide to find it. Not the end of the world, but keep in mind this game starts at 6:40 pm so we're 100% going to forget about it. Plus it's Texas A&M-CC and Texas Southern which isn't exactly appointment viewing. We don't want the fact that it's on a rando station delaying us even more. This is the first year that these play-in games officially count for me so it's important that we get the full entertainment value. We are highly likely to not make any money betting this tournament so entertainment value is key.

Texas Southern Team Total Over 72.5 - Alt Line 4 (+162) (Bet $100 to win $162)

I'm at FanDuel for this one since DraftKings isn't offering alt lines. Here's the deal people. We're not making any money betting this tournament. Anyone betting every single game knows that. When you bet every game, you're in it for entertainment. With that being said, plus money bets are crucial. You can hit 45% and still not do too bad. For that reason, a lot of my bets will be at FanDuel (probably).

Have I ever seen this team play? No. I honestly thought the CC in the team they are playing against stood for community college. That's crazy. But I did some digging. I crunched every number I could crunch. I watched highlight videos on YouTube. I know these kids now and I love them like they're my own. I'd do anything for them and that means taking their team total over.

First off, Big Under is at it again poisoning the minds of bettors everywhere. They're saying that the play-in games went under last year so they will again this year. Lies people. All lies. First off, the play-ins were all on the same night last year. They don't count. Remember they tried to give us a "play-in Thursday"? So dumb. Plus the UCLA-Michigan State game flew over. Big Under is full of lies.

The games that went under last season featured the slowest of the slow-paced teams in college hoops. We don't have that with this game. These teams play like the building is on fire. Real basketball.

Bet $10, win $200 if EITHER TEAM hits a 3-Pointer

Texas Southern is battle-tested since they were in the dance last season. On top of that, they've scored at least 73 points in four of their last six games. One of the times they didn't they hit 72. The other time was against Jackson State who play at a snail's pace. Doesn't count. I think Texas Southern scores at least 73 points against a community college with the sixth-worst defensive efficiency in the field. I can't believe we're getting +164 for this.
