The Texas State Bobcats and the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns meet in college basketball action from the Cajundome on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Louisiana is listed as a 9.5-point home favorite for this game with a ML price of -450. The total for this game is set at 135.5 points.
For Texas State, Mason Harrell is questionable for this game with an undisclosed injury. Louisiana has a clean bill of health coming into this game.
Louisiana’s 60-51 win over Texas State back on January 21st, 2023, made it three straight wins for the road team in this head-to-head matchup.
Texas State is 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 road games. Louisiana is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall while the under is 6-0 in their last 6 games against a team with a losing record.
I’m backing Louisiana here. Texas State’s had solid moments this season, but there’s a reason that Louisiana is atop the Sun Belt mountain coming into this game. The road team’s also won three straight meetings between these two teams and they’ve won those games handily. I look for this game to buck that trend with a convincing home win by ULL for their third straight win in this series.
