The first round of the 2024 NCAA tournament kickoff here on Thursday and this will be one of the best games of the opening day. As two of the top mid-majors in the country will open up their NCAA tournament journey against each other here on Thursday afternoon. As the Nevada Wolfpack take on the Dayton Flyers and what is sure to be one of the most entertaining first round games of this year’s NCAA tournament. As both of these teams put together incredible regular seasons, and both of them will look to advance to the first weekend of the tournament with a huge victory here on Thursday afternoon. This is going to be a high scoring back-and-forth game between two schools here and this one and the winner we have plenty of momentum going into their second game of the tournament on Saturday. 

Nevada had an incredible season out of the Mountain West and they will look to go on a deep tournament run and it starts with grabbing a victory here on Thursday against Dayton. This is a team that plenty of people are high on as a potential surprise sweet 16 team heading into the opening day of the NCAA tournament. They finished the first part of their season with 26 victories through their first 33 games of the year and they will look for their 27th victory of the season here in this one. 

After Nevada was knocked out of their first game in the mountain west conference tournament, they earned an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. They will look to make the most of it with a tournament run that kicks off with a game against Dayton. This Nevada team put up around 76 points per game this season and they will rely heavily on their speedy offense and their lockdown defense to get the job done here in this game. Nevada posted a solid conference record, in what was arguably the toughest mid-major conference in the country this season, and they will use that hardnose battle tested experience to grab a huge victory here in this one.

Over the last several seasons, Dayton has become one of those mid-major schools that you expect to be in the NCAA tournament whether they win their conference tournament or earn an at-large bid to the big dance. The Dayton program has been a model of consistency for mid-majors within college basketball for some time now and they will look to make a deep run into the NCAA tournament this season. You can arguably say that this Dayton program is one of the best rosters they’ve had in quite some time and they are geared up for a potential Cinderella run throughout the tournament. 

Some people are even predicting this Dayton team to make an elite eight run if they can get past this very tough Nevada program and they’re opening game on Thursday afternoon. They put together a solid regular season winning 24 out of 31 games and they had a decent performance in the Atlantic 10 conference tournament as well. This is a Dayton team that has a high-flying offense with no pun intended and they have a lockdown defense that can get the job done as well. They have the opportunity to be a very dangerous team throughout this tournament. As long as Dayton can remain healthy and consistent, they could easily find their way playing into the second week of the NCAA tournament, and potentially the second weekend as well.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Dayton is 6-0 after a loss 

- Dayton is 3-2 as an underdog 

- Dayton is 10-2 outside of the Atlantic 10

I expect this to be a close and competitive game throughout the entirety of the contest on Thursday afternoon. But I look for the underdogs to pick up the victory in this game as I have Dayton grabbing the victory against Nevada here in this one to kick off the NCAA tournament. As I look for the Flyers high flying offense to get the job done throughout this game on Thursday afternoon against a tough Nevada defense and start their run through the NCAA tournament.
