Against The Spread Pick
The fourth and fifth placed teams in the American Athletic Conference match up tonight, Wichita standing at fourth with a 21-7 record, and SMU at fifth with a 19-8 record. Wichita has won four of their last five games, including a win vs the 25th ranked Houston. On the other side, SMU is 3-2 in their last five games, and are a very impressive 15-1 at home. Tonight is a very evenly matched game, and it could go either way. Based on SMU’s impressive home record, it would be hard to pick against them in tonight’s game. They are going to be fighting hard to push their way up the standings, attempting to slither their way into the tournament. Take SMU tonight.
Over Under Pick
Over the last five games, the two teams are averaging a combined 139 points, Wichita at 72 and SMU at 67. Despite this, SMU’s past two games have seen them put up 58 and 57 points. SMU’s recent scoring slump, combined with Wichita State being the 9th ranked defensive team in terms of defensive efficiency, is a main reason to choose the UNDER tonight.
