TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION THURSDAY, JANUARY 27TH
#783 MURRAY STATE (-12′) over Tennessee Tech at 7 PM EST
Even though Tennessee Tech plays this game with right back revenge, Murray State will prove to be too tough for the Golden Eagles in this rematch. Since December 1st, TTU has played only three games inside the friendly confines of the Eblen Center, and this will be their toughest home test of the season.
Technically speaking, there is a strong conference situation that backs MSU in this OVC showdown. Since January 4th, 2020, OVC teams that take the floor with confidence off two or more straight up wins own a sensational 66-18 SU and 53-28-3 ATS record provided they are battling a conference foe that busts in without steam off a straight up loss. If our “play on” side owns a pointspread won/loss percentage of .501 or better, this technical situation cruises to an elite 40-12-1 ATS including a money-making 19-3 ATS if they are competing on the road. With those three parameters in play and our guest favored by -6.5 or more, this OVC angle explodes to a phenomenal 9-0 SU and ATS.
Tennessee Tech has experienced a few problems when running the floor against college basketball’s best. In fact, when stepping up in class and fighting a foe that owns a team won/loss percentage of .501 or better, the Golden Eagles carry a weak 4-32 SU and 13-20-2 ATS mark including a rough 3-23 SU and 7-16-2 ATS in this situation provided they take the court off a straight up loss. Also, OVC home dogs that hit the hardwood off a blowout loss of 10 points or more hold a feeble 15-24 ATS tally provided they are facing a conference foe. If our “play against” side is grabbing +6.5 or more, this OVC situation crumbles to a weak 8-18 ATS.
Ranked No. 4 in the NCAA in scoring margin (+19.3 ppg) and scoring (82.6 ppg), the Racers will prove to be too much for the Golden Eagles once again. Take Murray State. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
