Matchup History

Murray State’s 77-76 OT win back on February 26th, 2023, swept the season series in favor of the Racers.


Valparaiso is 3-12 ATS in their last 15 games against a team with a winning record and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Thursday games while the over is 8-2 in their last 10 games overall. Murray State is 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 games against a team with a losing record and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall while the over is 14-3 in their last 17 games overall.


I’m backing the over here. These two teams just squared off in a thriller to close out the year and I could easily see a similar result where the line factors in a big way here. I think you’re really splitting hairs on a side here on a neutral floor, so I’ll root for offense in this one and side with the over.
