Wyoming and Indiana are each 12 seed's in the First Four in Dayton as part of the East region. The winner will face St. Mary's in the official first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Indiana's late surge in the Big Ten Tournament, making it to the semifinals was good enough to earn an at-large berth while Wyoming's strong play in the Mountain West Conference also secured them a No. 12 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Wyoming vs. Indiana Prediction and Pick

While Indiana is the hot team at the moment, I think they are in an unfavorable spot as a favorite now. The team was able to do damage in the Big Ten Tournament as underdogs, but now will be the hunted.

I like swiss army knife guard Hunter Maldanaldo, who is fantastic in post up situations and can give the Indiana back court fits, to operate down low and find shooters on the perimeter. Wyoming has shot makers on the outside in Brendan Wenzel and Xavier DuSell to hang in this game.

The Cowboys protect the ball well, 62nd in the country in turnover rate and have a reliable big man in Graham Ike that can match up with Trayce Jackson-Davis. Wyoming has played teams close all season while Indiana has struggled to close out games, I'll take the Mountain West dog at over two buckets.

PICK: Wyoming +4, play to +2.5
