Middle Tennessee’s 62-58 win over Charlotte back on January 19th, 2023, snapped Charlotte’s two-game win streak in this matchup.
Charlotte is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 5-1-2 in their last 8 games following an ATS win. Middle Tennessee is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 neutral site games and 23-11-2 ATS in their last 36 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 4-0-1 in their last 5 games following an ATS loss.
I’m backing Middle Tennessee here. This is a fairly even matchup record wise and both have had success this season on a neutral floor, but it’s been Middle Tennessee that’s been the cover machine going back to last season and I expect it to be no different here. Charlotte is solid defensively, but sometimes I worry they rely too heavily on that defense to get the job done. I’ll side with Middle Tennessee for the win here and to move on in the tournament.
