TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 4TH
#741 BELMONT (-) over Eastern Illinois at 8:30 PM EST
Currently on a 15-0 SU and 9-5-1 ATS run and off a pair of pointspread losses, Belmont will travel to Lanzt Arena in Charleston, Illinois and stuff Eastern Illinois. The Bruins are laying more on the road to the Panthers (currently -13.5) than they did when they hosted EIU back on January 21st when they were a -11.5-point piece of chalk! After losing eight straight, Eastern Illinois grabbed a rare road win at SIUE and it is in prime position to tank once again.
Technically speaking, this is a solid spot for second-year head coach Casey Alexander. When running the court against an opponent that played on the road in their last game, the Bruins sports a lucrative 50-9 SU and 35-15-1 ATS record. In this run laying -8 or more, Belmont jumps to a juicy 34-2 SU and 25-10-1 ATS including a sensational 27-1 SU and 21-6-1 ATS if both teams the court off a conference game. (In that last tightener, the Bruins are a golden 10-0 SU and ATS in its last 10.
Fading an EIU squad that is on a dismal 23-34 SU and 18-34-1 ATS run in its last 57 games won’t be a problem either. In this setting battling a conference foe, the Panthers drop to a stiff 13-25 SU and 11-26-1 ATS including a pitiful 7-13 SU and 5-15 ATS if their opponent hits the hardwood off a pointspread loss. Also, home dog sets have been brutal for Eastern Illinois. When shagging points in their own backyard, head coach Jay Spoonhour’s boys hold a dismal 29-63 SU and 34-57-1 ATS tally including a hideous 10-30 US and 11-28-1 ATS if their opponent was on the road in their last battle.
Ranked 16th in Division I play in scoring averaging 82.5 points per game, the Bruins will have no trouble lighting up the scoreboard matched up against a Panthers stop unit that is ranked 241st in scoring allowing an average of 74.3 points per game. Take Belmont. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
