2023 Conference USA Tournament Predictions and Picks

The Favorite

Florida Atlantic +145 has been a juggernaut all season long, but they haven’t gotten much love. They currently rank 28th in the nation in adjusted efficiency rating, but they don’t have a win over any team in the top 45 of that metric. And the reason is simple, they haven’t played anyone in the top 45. The reality remains that they’ve dominated the C-USA. They finished 18-2 in the conference and have won four straight.

The Value Play

UAB +240 is the hottest team in the conference as they have won six straight. The Blazers have handed FAU one of their two C-USA losses this season and almost handed them two as they lost at FAU by two earlier in the season. UAB has won nine of their last 10 and the only loss in that stretch is a double OT loss against North Texas. This is a very good squad that can beat teams up on the boards with their size and athleticism. We like the Blazers this week in the C-USA Tournament.

The Pick

UAB has shown they are a very tough matchup for FAU. And while it will be a dogfight with both North Texas and FAU, we really like the Blazers to find a way to win this tournament just like they did in 2022. Give us UAB to repeat at +240
