The Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders have not played a game yet and are opening their regular season against Murray State. Middle Tennessee beat Faulkner in an exhibition game last Thursday by a score of 84-63. Middle Tennessee was up 49-36 at the half but Faulkner got within 6 six points before Middle Tennessee pulled away in the second half. Giddy Potts led Middle Tennessee in scoring with 27 points, 3 assists, and 5 rebounds. Reggie Upshaw also added 20 points and 13 rebounds. Middle Tennessee out rebounded their opponent by a total of 47-26 and scored 48 points in the paint. Middle Tennessee will be one of the last programs to open up their regular season this week.

Middle Tennessee is 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Middle Tennessee’s last 6 games against the Ohio Valley Conference. Murray State is 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 non-conference games. Murray State is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against Conference USA. The over is 5-2 in Murray State’s last 7 non-conference games.

This is a pretty even matchup that should be a very entertaining game. Murray State has played a game this season but they were very little competition for the Racers. I think Murray State has the slight edge here playing at home. I am picking Murray State.
