Eric Reed Jr. leads Southeast Missouri State in scoring with 14.8 PPG while Phillip Russell is right there with 14.8 PPG and a team-high 3 APG. Chris Harris has 10.4 PPG with 2.8 APG to round out the trio of double-digit scorers for Southeast Missouri State so far this season. Nygal Russell also has a team-high 6.8 RPG to lead the Redhawks on the glass this season. As a team, Southeast Missouri State is averaging 74.4 PPG on 43.3% shooting from the field, 33.6% from three and 73% from the foul line while allowing 77.3 PPG on 45.3% shooting from the field and 35.8% from three this season.

The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles will hope to bounce back from a 61-60 loss to SIU-Edwardsville last time out. Jr. Clay leads the Golden Eagles in scoring with 12.7 PPG and 3.8 APG while Keishawn Davidson has 10.1 PPG with a team-high 4 APG as the only other double-digit scorer for Tennessee Tech this season. Amadou Sylla also has a team-high 5.1 RPG to lead the Golden Eagles on the glass this season.

Southeast Missouri State is 3-11 ATS in their last 14 road games and 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games as a road underdog while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record. Tennessee Tech is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 home games against a team with a losing road record while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games as a home favorite.

I get the case to be made either way here, but I’m siding with the over in this one as the stronger play. This game features two above average offensive units that are averaging well into the mid-70s offensively against two of the worst scoring defenses in the country this season. Seems like a prime spot for an offensive clinic here. Give me the over in this spot.
