TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 27TH
#618 WICHITA ST (-) over Temple at 8 PM EST
Hungry off hard-fought three-point road loss at Cincinnati and with a pair of wars at SMU and Memphis on deck, Wichita State will go for the jugular when it hosts Temple on Thursday evening. The Owls bounce over to Charles Koch Arena off a blemish at East Carolina and this trip to Wichita won’t be an easy one for head coach Aaron McKie and his kids.
If the loss to the Bearcats won’t get the Shockers motivated for this contest, then the memory of their 12-point drubbing at the Liacouras Center will certainly have them fired up. This is actually an elite spot for head coach Gregg Marshall and his crew. In a same season single revenge mode and competing against a foe that takes the floor off a straight up loss, WSU has been a solid wager posting a rewarding 29-15-1 ATS mark. In this situation battling with a revenge margin of five points or more, the Shockers explode to a money-making 21-6-1 ATS. Also, when fighting at home, Wichita State has assembled a sensational 125-13 SU and 70-47-3 ATS record in its last 138 games including a strong 56-6 SU and 31-17-3 ATS in this set if it takes the court with four or more days rest.
The road hasn’t exactly been kind to Temple. The Owls are a dismal 1-6 SU and ATS in their last seven games as a guest including a pitiful 0-5 SU and ATS in this set provided their opponent carries a team won/loss percentage of .500 or better. Even worse, when going into revenge, Temple has experienced all kinds of financial problems lately inking a terrible 21-35-3 ATS mark. In this role facing a foe that arrives off a straight up loss, the Owls drop to a disgusting 10-20-1 ATS including 2-10-1 ATS in this set provided they check in off a road war. Finally, in the second of two or more checking in off a straight up loss, Coach McKie’s troops hold a timid 15-27-1 ATS record.
The Shockers forgot to show up in the second-half in their loss to the Owls earlier this season. Coach Marshall’s soldiers shot 22 percent after intermission and missed all 10 of their shots from behind the arc. That’s not going to happen here. Take Wichita State. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
