Tom Stryker’s Free Basketball Play February 17th


#782 LOUISIANA TECH (-8′) over Texas El Paso at 7:30 PM EST
Back inside the TAC (Thomas Assembly Center) off three straight on the road at FAU, FIU, and Charlotte, Louisiana Tech will have no trouble smashing UTEP for the second time this season. The Miners limp into this C-USA game off a pair of losses to the Mean Green and Thundering Herd, and this visit to Ruston will be a difficult one for head coach Joe Golding and his crew.

Historically speaking, the Bulldogs have played well in this series inking a strong 10-3 SU record in the last 13 battles including a nearly perfect 4-1 SU and ATS in the previous four. Also, since January 31st, 2016, Louisiana Tech has assembled a powerful 87-12 SU and 46-24-1 ATS tally when playing in the TAC including a spectacular 48-4 SU and 31-7-1 ATS provided it is running with four or more days of rest. Lastly, when competing with steam off a straight up win, head coach Eric Konokol and his kids hold a respectable 75-43-3 ATS record provided their opponent busts in off a SU and ATS loss. In this setting favored by -16 or less, the Bulldogs cruise to an amazing 51-22-2 ATS.

This is a terrible wagering spot for UTEP too. When coming off a SU and ATS loss, the Miners have failed to respond notching a stiff 29-45 SU and 26-43-1 ATS record in their last 74 games including a feeble 12-20 SU and 8-23-1 ATS in this spot provided their opponent is competing with four or more days of rest. With those two parameters live and Texas El Paso hitting the hardwood off the comforts of a home game, this trend falls to a miserable 3-11 SU and 1-12-1 ATS including a horrible 1-9 SU and 0-9-1 ATS provided the Miners are priced as an underdog or a favorite of -3 or less.

The Bulldogs play at another level on Karl Malone Court and, currently tied for second in the West Division with UAB holding a 9-3 SU record, Coach Konokol’s boys need this dub to keep pace with the Blazers. Take Louisiana Tech. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
