The Wichita State Shockers and the SMU Mustangs meet in college basketball action from the Moody Coliseum on Sunday. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
SMU is listed as a 1.5-point home favorite with an attached ML price of -125. The total for this game is set at 133.5 points.
For Wichita State, Quincy Ballard is questionable for this game and Isaiah Poor Bear-Chandler is questionable for this game with an undisclosed injury. SMU on the other hand has a clean injury report coming into this game.
Wichita State has won the last five meetings between these two teams after a 72-57 win back on February 5th, 2022.
Wichita State is 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 road games. SMU is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the under is 7-2 in their last 9 Sunday games.
I get the case to be made for SMU at home, but I’ve been continuously disappointed by SMU over the course of the season, and I just feel that Wichita State is the better team. The Shockers have won the last five meetings between these two teams and I think they make it six. Give me the Shockers in this one.
