TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION MONDAY, MARCH 28TH
#887 COASTAL CAROLINA (+1′) over South Alabama at 8 PM EST
Off back-to-back SU and ATS home wins over UMES and Florida Gulf Coast, Coastal Carolina will travel to South Alabama and pick up its sweet revenge. Back on February 17th, the Chanticleers (+1) hosted the Jaguars and they lost outright 71-68.
When running the court in a payback mode, CCU has been worth the financial risk lately posting a solid 12-5 ATS tally in its last 17 games. In this run priced as an underdog of +2 or more, head coach Cliff Ellis’ boys improve to a healthy 7-0 ATS. Equally impressive, since January 15th, 2022, Sun Belt Conference road teams hold a stunning 28-10-2 ATS provided they check in with confidence off a straight up win and they are currently matched up against a conference foe. If our “play on” side played in the comforts of home last, this SBC angle tightens up to a jaw-dropping 17-3 ATS.
After barely escaping Southeastern Louisiana and USC Upstate in the first two rounds of The Basketball Classic, South Alabama will meet its match here. At home priced as a favorite or an underdog of +3.5 or less, the Jaguars hold a weak 27-46-2 ATS mark provided their opponent owns a team won/loss percentage of .551 or better. In this setting running the floor against a foe that arrives off a blowout victory of 12 points or more, USA falls to a horrible 8-22 ATS including a pitiful 3-15 ATS provided this is a conference game.
In a payback mode and with a ticket to The Basketball Classic Championship Game on the line, Coach Ellis and his kids will pull off the upset. Take Coastal Carolina. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
