Miami vs Drake Prediction | March Madness Expert Picks

With Isiah Wong, the Miami Hurricanes are looking to repeat their run last year that saw the school in the Elite 8. That starts the tournament with a very good Drake Bulldogs team. According to KenPom both of these teams are within the top 100 in terms of offense. Though this is the case, both teams have been struggling to hit the over lately. In fact, the under has hit in each of Drake’s last six games. With both team scoring just above 70 points per game on a neutral court, I would guess that it may take time to adjust and put up points in New York. For that reason, I am taking the UNDER in this game.

Our college basketball betting Miami vs Drake prediction tonight will be the UNDER hitting at BetUS.

For what it’s worth, the ESPN Matchup Predictor gives Miami a 56.9% chance to win.
