TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION SUNDAY, MARCH 6TH
#803 HOUSTON (-2′) over Memphis at 12 PM EST
Back on February 12th, Memphis (+9.5) strolled right into Houston and broke the Cougars 37-game home winning streak when it pulled off the shocking 69-59 upset. In a payback mode and on a blistering 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS run in their last six games, head coach Kelvin Sampson and his kids will pick up their sweet revenge.
Clinging to a surprising 8-10 SU and 4-13-1 ATS record in the last 18 meetings, UH certainly hasn’t dominated this series lately. Thankfully, since the tip of the 2017-18 season, Phi Slamma Jamma has posted a powerful 137-28 SU and 90-60-1 ATS mark in their last 165 games including a strong 71-10 SU and 51-25 ATS if the Cougars played in the comforts of home last. With those two parameters live and Houston fighting a foe that owns a team won/loss percentage of .501 or better, this technical situation cruises to an outstanding 47-9 SU and 39-16 ATS including an elite 29-4 SU and 25-7 ATS provided UH takes the floor with steam off two or more straight up wins.
It won’t be easy knocking off Memphis in the FedExForum. The Tigers have assembled a dominant 56-9 SU record in their last 65 home games, and they are obviously tough to beat on this court. However, when priced as an underdog, head coach Penny Hardaway and his kids have lost 23 of their last 30 games straight up on the floor. Also, as a pooch going into revenge, Memphis has inked a horrible 7-25 SU mark in its last 32 tries. Finally, as a short underdog of +5 or less and hitting the hardwood off a blowout win of nine points or more, the Tigers have been at their financial worst posting a horrible 5-14 SU and ATS tally in their last 19 games including just 3-14 SU and ATS provided this is a regular season battle.
In a payback mode, the Cougars have posted a profitable 17-1 SU and 13-5 ATS record in their last 18 games. Behind a defense that is ranked No. 1 in field-goal percentage (36.8) and scoring (58.8), Coach Sampson and his boys will settle this old score. Take Houston. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
