Against The Spread Pick

The Shockers are coming off an embarrassing loss to Houston where they were blown out 76-43 this past Sunday. This drops them to 5-5 in the American Athletic and they really cannot afford to lose this game to an inferior opponent. Another loss and their chances to get into the NCAA tournament may start to get hazy. On the other side, the Knights are well outside of the tournament picture and will basically need to win the conference tournament to get in. They are however just 3-7 against the spread at home this season, so backing them here is not really something I want to do. I do not love the Wichita State side either because of some of their struggles on the road, but I could only take the Shockers here.

Over Under Pick

Like the side, this is not a total I want to get involved with. Both teams have had pretty poor offenses this season, each averaging between 68.3-72.3 points per game. Defense has been solid but not elite, allowing between 64.5-66.7 points on average. Note that in the last four meetings, the over has hit easily in all four. Again, not a total I want to touch, but the over is the play here based on trends.
