Murray State -11.5 Point Spread

Over 150 Game Totals

Against The Spread Pick

Murray State continues to solidify themselves as a team that will play in March. They are rolling, winning 14 of their last 17 and their last 10 home games. The Racers boast one of the best offenses in the country. They average 75.5 points per game and shoot at almost a 48 percent clip. Murray State does all this plus is able to back it up on defense. They are holding opponents to under 65 points per game and below a 40 percent shooting percentage from the field. Eastern Kentucky does pose a challenge on the offensive side of the ball where they average 75.8 points per game. The only problem is they have no defense to back it up. I think Murray will dominate from start to finish especially considering how good they are at home. This matchup does not bode well for the Colonels defense and the Racers should win big. Lean Murray State even with the big number.

Over Under Pick

Eastern Kentucky’s defense is practically nonexistent on the road. This matchup doesn’t play well with that, as Murray State has the offensive ability to run teams out of the gym. In Eastern Kentucky’s last 19 games the over has hit 13 times. In the Colonel’s last six road games the over has hit five times. With the electric ability of Murray State’s offense and the porous nature of the Colonel’s defense they are going to have to rely on scoring to stay in the game. Take the over here.
