Matchup History

Northwestern State’s 91-81 OT win over Southeastern Louisiana back on January 19th, 2023, snapped Southeastern Louisiana’s two-game head-to-head win streak in this matchup.


Southeastern Louisiana is 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 games following a loss and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the over is 6-0 in their last 6 road games against a team with a home winning percentage above .600. Northwestern State is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS loss while the over is 7-1 in their last 8 Thursday games.


I’m backing Northwestern State here. The Demons have been one of the more surprising non-power conference teams to follow this season, as Northwestern State in the past had been nothing more than a doormat for other teams but the Demons have stepped it up this season pretty nicely. Southeastern Louisiana’s had their moments, but they’re slumping down the stretch and going into Northwestern State with the Demons rolling isn’t an ideal place to be. I’ll back Northwestern State laying the points here.
