March Madness 2021: Nit Final/Third Place Game

Mississippi State vs. Memphis (Final)

Louisiana Tech shot better in the second half, but it did not matter. Their defense was not up to the task of slowing down Mississippi St. Now we get a final between the Bulldogs who are red hot and the Memphis Tigers, who are also red hot. The Tigers are -4 favorites and understandably so. They routed a team some thought could win the NIT and they are a #1 seed themselves. Memphis just missed making the NCAA Tournament this year and Louisville declined an NIT Invitation, which helped their road as well. The Tigers are a young team and so are the Bulldogs. Mississippi St. played in a difficult SEC and the TIgers played a potential Final Four team in Houston. Both teams have played good teams and had hot streaks. These teams matchup well also stat wise with both teams having issues with free throw shooting and turnovers. The difference will be that Memphis is just a better team. They are more talented, but more importantly, more consistent. Mississippi St. has a chance with they streak they are on, but Memphis is here for a reason as well and their consistency will see them end tomorrow as the 2021 NIT Champions.

Louisiana Tech vs. Colorado State (3rd Place)

So I need to correct myself. I can get one more game right as Colorado St. can win the 3rd place game. I see them doing just that. Surprisingly the spread is even. The Rams are little bit more experienced, turn the ball over less, and shoot better from the free throw line. They hit a hot shooting team in Memphis, but Louisiana Tech is not Memphis or better than Memphis. Unless the Rams pack it in and lose their care for the game, they should end up winning this game pretty easily. Take the Rams here.

March Madness is in full swing with the NCAA Tournament and the postseason will be winding down outside of that. It has been a lot of fun to watch these games and follow the brackets! Hope you picked correctly! Let us know if you picked correctly! Happy betting
