Houston vs Longwood Prediction | March Madness Expert Picks

Longwood plays like a 16 seed version of the Houston Cougars. The Lancers get to the free throw line, crash the offensive glass and force a lot of turnovers. That makes them a live dog against anyone else in this tournament, besides Houston. You can’t get Houston by mirroring their style.

24.5 points is a lot to lay in any game, but the Cougars were embarrassed by Iowa State in the Big 12 Tournament and should come out in this game ready to make a statement. Houston is still, for my money, the second best team in this tournament. The Cougars will lock down Longwood and coast to a 30+ point win. For our Longwood vs Houston prediction, we are picking the Houston Cougars to win the game.
