Seattle vs. Evansville Prediction

I’m on Seattle here. Evansville getting a win in their tournament opener is a nice confidence booster for this team, but the reality is they’re still a team that struggled down the stretch and are not a team I really want to get behind long term. I think the Redhawks are the better team by a fair margin and I think the Aces struggle in this one. Give me Seattle here.
