Indiana vs. Miami: 2023 NCAA Tournament Picks & Predictions (Sunday)

Mar 18, 2023 - 7:31 PM

The Midwest Region of the NCAA bracket already has a bunch of upsets.

Auburn took care of business against Iowa in the 8-9 matchup. Pittsburgh upset Iowa State in the 6-11 matchup. Lastly, Penn State dominated Texas A&M in the 7-10 matchup as the ten-seed.

Houston, Texas, Xavier, Indiana and Miami all survived the first game of the bracket. At the time of writing this, the region still has its five best teams, unlike most of the other regions.

That will change on Day 2, Round 2.

No. 5 seed Miami will face No. 4 Indiana. One team has to lose out of the top five now. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh will take on Xavier, as an 11-seed going up against a 3-seed.

Things are about to get interesting.

Here are my two cents on Sunday’s Midwest Region action.

Indiana vs. Miami

Indiana has had trouble winning back-to-back games all year. Could this change against Miami?


Indiana looked really good against Kent State and Miami struggled against Drake to begin Tournament play in the region.

The Hoosiers have shot 37% from downtown and 53.1% from inside the arc. That’s crucial, especially with Miami giving up 51.8% from inside the arc this season.

Indiana won’t get to the foul line at a high rate but still hit over 71% from the foul line.

Meanwhile, Miami’s the better offense. The Hurricanes have shot 36.7% from three and 54.1% from inside the arc. This team is also more reliable from the foul line. But Indiana has held teams to 45.1% from inside the arc this season. That’s going to help Indiana escape Miami.

Bet: Indiana -1.5 (-110)
