Against The Spread Pick

A Thursday night Ohio Valley Conference game will see the Murray State Racers take on the Eastern Illinois Panthers. The Racers are currently 12-2 in conference, which has them tied for first place. The Panthers are not faring as well, sitting in 7th place with a conference record of 5-9. The Panthers are 1-6 in their last 7 games overall. These teams did meet just under three weeks ago which saw the Racers win 73-70. They failed to cover the 10.5-point spread, so be careful with laying a large number with Murray State. Note that the Racers are just 4-8 against the spread away from home, so I am not keen to take the Racers here in this game. That being said, I would lean to the Panthers to play the Racers close again, but this is not a game I really want to bet.

Over Under Pick

If you like scoring, be sure to catch part of this game because there is likely going to be plenty of it. The Racers are scoring an average of 74.6 points per game on the road, while the Panthers score 81.1 points in game played at home. Furthermore, the over is 6-3 in Eastern Illinois home games and 8-5 in Murray State away games. Also, the over is 38-15 in the last 53 home games for Eastern Illinois. This is not a total I will be betting, but the over would be my lean.
