Alabama vs. Texas A&M CC Pick

The first team to win a game during the 2023 NCAA tournament was Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, who won the opener of the First Four against Southeast Missouri State on Tuesday night. But they have a much tougher test ahead of them in the first round when they take on the top overall winner, the Alabama Crimson Tide. Here we make our NCAA tournament first round picks for Alabama vs. Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.

Alabama vs Texas A&M-Corpus Christi State betting selection

This match will be played at Legacy Arena at BJCC on Thursday, March 16, 2023 at 2:45pm ET.

Why bet on Alabama:

✅ Texas A&M-CC did a great job to beat SEMO on Tuesday, but they’re in a tough spot here. They have to travel from Dayton to Birmingham to play what will essentially be a street game and it won’t end well for them.

✅ The Islanders hit 35 free throws against SEMO during the First Four. Alabama will be much better at defending without foul play, which will help them hurt Corpus Christi here.

Alabama Crimson Tide: High tide as far as expectations go

The Alabama Crimson Tide enter this match between Alabama and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi as the number one overall in the NCAA tournament. They won the SEC and went into March Madness that season 29-5. Here’s an opportunity for Alabama to start their tournament on the right foot against a team they have a huge advantage over in almost every facet of the game.

For Alabama, the key to this game is finding a way to defend without fouling. They’ve got the size and athleticism needed in this game, but lazy defending means free throws for the islanders. And how well Texas A&M-Corpus Christi shot free throws on Tuesday could make this game a little tighter than expected.

Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders: Nothing to Lose

Texas A&M-Corpus Christi beat the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks to open the NCAA tournament. They did this by living at the free throw line and backing up a 4-18 evening shooting from three-point range. Here, the islanders are likely to have a tougher time against the tournament’s top overall winner by every measure.

The question for Corpus Christi is how to stop Brandon Miller and the Crimson Tide offensive. They don’t own an individual defender who could stop Miller one-on-one. Instead, it requires total team effort for 40 minutes, which is easier said than done. Alabama vs. Texas A&M CC Pick
