Against The Spread Pick
The Belmont Bruins and Murray State Racers face off on Thursday and in this game the value lies with the home squad. These are two teams who have had a lot of success coming into this game with each team winning at least each of their last five games. The one big difference between these two teams is the way the Racers defense plays at home. They are giving up only 56.7 points per game while the Bruins are giving up 71.2 points per game away from the home. The Racers are 7-3 against the spread in the last 10 games overall. Back the Racers to cover the spread in this game.
Over Under Pick
The Racers don’t give up a ton of points at home, and that is going to be enough to keep this total lower. On paper, it looks like they are giving up more points as of late, but their four games were on the road. With the way both of these offenses score, the total does scare me a little bit, but with the Racers defense there is no other way to bet this. Take the under.
