TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 16TH
#794 ORAL ROBERTS (-18′) over North Dakota at 8 PM EST
Since suffering that 82-75 loss at New Mexico back on January 9th, Oral Roberts has responded by posting a perfect 10-0 SU (5-5 ATS) mark in its last 10 games. Matched up against an overachieving North Dakota squad that arrives off three consecutive straight up wins over South Dakota, Denver, and Omaha, head coach Paul Sather and his troops will finally meet their match here.
In the last five battles in this series, the Golden Eagles have been in complete control notching a 5-0 SU and 3-2 ATS record. Equally impressive, when running the floor against a foe that arrives with confidence off a straight up win, ORU has been at its financial best posting a profitable 29-13 SU and 29-12-1 ATS mark. In this situation fighting an opponent that played in the comforts of home last, head coach Paul Mills and his boys improve to a stunning 21-4-1 ATS including a nearly perfect 11-1 SU and ATS provided their opponent enters off a straight up win of 15 points or less.
North Dakota hasn’t exactly been a pointspread darling either. In fact, since 2019, the Fighting Hawks have lost their punch inking a dismal 44-64 ATS record in their last 108 lined games. Provided UND is playing in a true road war, this team trend crashes to a horrible 12-47 SU and 18-39 ATS mark including a nasty 6-45 SU and 14-37 ATS if it is priced as a pup of +2 or more. With those two parameters live and Coach Sather’s squad holding a team won/loss percentage of .315 or higher, this team trend falls to a woeful 3-27 SU and 5-25 ATS. That spells trouble for the Fighting Hawks.
The Golden Eagles are averaging a lofty 85.5 points per game and they’ll look to light up the scoreboard matched up against a UND defense that has surrendered an average of 73.1 points per game. Take Oral Roberts. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
