The No. 9 TCU Horned Frogs are taking on the No. 8 Seton Hall Pirates in the first round of the NCAA Tournament in the South Region. 

TCU made a run in the Big 12 conference tournament to earn a No. 9 spot, and it is actually the favorite at WynnBET Sportsbook in this game. 

Let’s break down the odds:

TCU vs. Seton Hall Prediction and Pick

Jamie Dixon’s TCU squad played some impressive basketball down the stretch, and I like them to win this game against Seton Hall, who has sputtered on offense at times without Bryce Aiken. 

Even though the Horned Frogs are favorites, I am going to take them on the moneyline even though they’ve gone 18-11-3 against the spread this season. 

Seton Hall is a better 3-point shooting team, but not by much, and the Pirates are 281st in effective field goal percentage. 

This may be a bit of recency bias, but after watching Seton Hall struggle to get anything going against UConn in the Big East Tournament, I don’t see this team bouncing back against a tough TCU team. 

Lean: TCU Moneyline (-115)
