Jacksonville State Gamecocks vs Auburn Tigers 3/18/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The #15 Jacksonville State Gamecocks will go against the #2 Auburn Tigers in a Men’s Basketball Championship – Midwest Region – 1st Round clash in Bon Secours Wellness Arena, SC, on Friday at 12:40 PM ET.

 

Bellarmine is unqualified due to being a new team to Division I, so the Gamecocks are coming into the Big Dance for the second time in school history after capturing the regular-season conference title.

 

In the Atlantic Sun Tournament Semifinals, Jacksonville State lost a hard fight to Jacksonville, as the Dolphins took control with a 13-2 run out of halftime and completely shut off the Gamecocks offense down the line.

 

Kayne Henry had 14 points and three steals to lead the Gamecocks, while Darian Adams had 10 points and 6 rebounds. Jacksonville State shot 39.6% from the field, including 6/27 from the three-point range, and was outscored 13-3 at the free-throw line, which didn’t help matters.

 

With a 17-12 record against the spread, the Gamecocks covered five consecutive matches before their defeat to Jacksonville. The Gamecocks have a 14-15 over/under record after two of their last 3 matches went under the betting total.

 

  • The University of Jacksonville State Gamecocks is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Jacksonville State’s last 9 matches.
  • Jacksonville State is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 matches this season.

Jacksonville State Gamecocks vs Auburn Tigers Predictions 3/18/2022

 

The Tigers finished the season on a 5-4 skid, a far cry from the squad that won 19 games in a row in the middle of the season, but as a No. 2 seed, they are still capable of doing some damage in the Midwest Region.

 

Auburn will be looking to rebound from a dismal departure from the SEC Tournament in its first game against Texas A&M, which dominated the game from start to finish last Friday, amassing a 53-33 advantage with 11:14 remaining until the Tigers made it more respectable in the dying moments.

 

Walker Kessler had 16 points, 9 rebounds, three steals, and 4 blocks on 6/8 shooting for the Tigers. Jabari Smith topped the Tigers with 17 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 assists.

 

Auburn’s offense couldn’t get going, shooting 30.4 percent from the field, including 9/36 from the three-point range. The Tigers are 19-13 against the spread, but they failed to cover in six of their previous seven games, including defeats as favorites to Texas A&M and Florida.

 

Auburn is 18-14 in overs after their SEC Tournament game versus Texas A&M dropped under the 140.5-point betting total.

 

  • The University of Auburn Tigers is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 matches.
  • Auburn is 8-0 SU in their last 8 matches in the Atlantic Sun Conference.
  • The Tigers are 10-2 SU in their last 12 matches played on a Friday.

#15 Jacksonville State Gamecocks vs #2 Auburn Tigers. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #15 Jacksonville State Gamecocks. Auburn’s recent offensive struggles, particularly on offense, are a huge concern heading into the NCAA Tournament, and this club struggled away from home all season.

 

While that won’t fully catch up to the Tigers until the later rounds, Jacksonville State’s prolific perimeter game gives it a chance to hang around for a half, and Auburn’s shooting issues make covering a number this huge difficult.

 

Auburn’s road results include defeats to Florida and Texas A&M, as well as tight victories against bad teams such as Georgia, Missouri, and South Florida.

 

Jacksonville State will make enough three-pointers early to give Auburn a scare before fading, but 15.5 points is too much for the Tigers’ poor shooting. The #15 Jacksonville State Gamecocks will win to a predicted score of 75-62.
