Against the Spread Pick

The Houston Cougars are 12-2 in their last 14 games and 6-1 in their last seven heading into Sunday. Among their recent victims are none other than the Wichita State Shockers, who are paying a visit and seeking revenge for a 65-54 home loss on Jan. 18. Houston has remained in fine form since then, thanks in part to Caleb Mills (13.1 ppg)–who has delivered 18 points in two of the past three outings. The Shockers, on the other hand, are are coming off consecutive setbacks against Tulsa and Cincinnati. Wichita State is 1-5-1 ATS in its last seven overall, 0-5-1 ATS in its last six against opponents with winning records, and 0-4-1 ATS in its last five against opponents with winning percentages over .600. The Cougars are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 overall and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 against opponents with winning records. Back HOUSTON with plenty of confidence.
