CBI Final: Pepperdine vs. Coastal Carolina

Apologies to our viewers and listeners! In an attempt to record my first ever episode of a podcast I am starting, it proceeded to get ruined by the beautiful thing we call “the cloud” for computers. After spending some time attempting to resolve the issue, I lost the episode, but I believe I have prevented future issues. This caused a break in the coverage of March Madness, but fear not! We are back, and we’ve got some action if the first weekend of March Madness got you craving sports betting again!

The CBI: The College Basketball Invitational. It is a small tournament that happens every year at the end of the season for smaller schools who did not make the NIT or NCAA tournaments. For example, my alma mater: Mount St. Mary’s made the NCAA tournament. Their opponent in the conference title game, Bryant University, decided to play in the CBI. It is a small bracket, but is fun to play along with and goes by quickly. So quickly in fact, that the game may have started at the time of writing, but you can live bet :p so you should it counts!

Anyway, to get started I had Stetson, Bryant, Pepperdine, and Army West Point winning their Quarterfinal matchups (opening round) and shot 50% on that one. I had Stetson and Pepperdine facing off in the final, but just like in football, Coastal Carolina decided to shake things up and start winning some games! That brings us to tonight!

Pepperdine vs. Coastal Carolina

The Waves are favored by -4.5 and they should cover that. As long as they can weather the storm and avoid turnovers. Coastal shoots very well from 3 and is a good rebounding team at +9 in this matchup overall. They need to shut down the guard play from DeVante’ Jones and Deanthony Tipler in order to control the pace of the game and take control. The Wave have had an up and down year, but are usually pretty consistent when it comes to end of the season tournaments. I believe this is the year that they finally breakthrough though and win a championship. They shoot their free throws well and I believe they will force enough turnovers to win the CBI. Enjoy the live betting and remember to take the Waves to win and cover!
