Betting Odds: BYU -5.5 (-110) - Over/Under (145.5)

Pick: BYU -5.5 (-110)

Wednesday afternoon takes us to a huge conference tournament game with two teams on the bubble of making the NCAA tournament. As Central Florida will play BYU here on Wednesday afternoon with the winter advancing to the next round of the Big 12 conference tournament. This is a must win game for both teams. If they want to keep their NCAA tournament hopes strong heading into the next round as Central Florida is sitting firmly on the bubble and BYU has a decent chance of getting in the tournament as an at large right now. 

Central Florida comes into this game as winners of 17 out of 31 on the season and they are very much on the bubble for the NCAA tournament. They will need to have a solid showing in this conference tournament and it starts with picking up a victory here on Wednesday afternoon against BYU to grab their 18th victory of the regular season. Every game for them from here on out as they must win this game if they want to play in the big dance this season, as even a deep run into this tournament might not be enough unless they win the entire thing.

They may need to grab the automatic bid in the big 12 conference and steal some bids along the way if they want to participate in the NCAA tournament this season and have an opportunity to win a national championship. Central Florida was able to pick up a victory over TCU in their regular season finale and they opened up the Big 12 conference tournament with a victory over Oklahoma State as well. Now they will look for their second consecutive victory in just as many days here on Wednesday afternoon against BYU as their quest of winning the Big 12 conference tournament continues into the second round.

BYU put together a tremendous regular season and they are likely going to be an at large bid into the NCAA tournament. However, coming into this game on Wednesday afternoon they are sitting on the bubble, and a few more victories certainly would not hurt in their quest to make the tournament. They have an opportunity to grab a second round conference tournament victory here on Wednesday afternoon against Central Florida and give themselves an even better chance of making the tournament if they don’t win the Big 12 conference tournament this season.

BYU comes into this game with 22 victories through their first 31 games of the season and they will look for their 23rd victory of the year here on Wednesday afternoon. This will be the first game of the conference tournament for BYU and they wrapped up their regular season on a hot note by winning two out of their last three in the month of March. They will look to keep them momentum rolling throughout this game on Wednesday afternoon as they look to advance to the quarterfinals and face off against one of the top four seeds in the conference as they look to further improve they’re standing on the bubble, heading into selection Sunday.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- BYU is 14-7 after a win this season 

- BYU is 21-3 as a favorite this season

- UCF is 5-10 as an underdog this season

I expect it to be all BYU in this one on Wednesday afternoon as I look for the Cougars to pick up a comfortable victory over Central Florida in the second round of the Big 12 conference tournament. As I look for BYU to not only pick up the victory here in this game but I also look for BYU to cover the five and a half point spread in the process against Central Florida. As I look for them to pull away late in the game and secure the victory over the Golden Knights, and improve their chances on the bubble heading into the rest of the week.
