Queens is listed as a 1.5-point home favorite with a ML price of -125. The total for this game is set at 157.5 points.


Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last-minute announcements, both sides will come into this game at full strength.

Matchup History

Eastern Kentucky won the lone meeting between these two teams back on December 31st, 2022.


Eastern Kentucky is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 and 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 4-1-1 in their last 6 games overall. Queens is 2-8-2 ATS in their last 12 games overall and 0-4-2 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games while the over is 7-1 in their last 8 games following an ATS loss.


I’m leaning towards Queens here. The Royals have done a lot of their best work at home, especially in conference play, and I don’t think this game ends up being any different. Eastern Kentucky has been solid at covering numbers as of late, but the bulk of their recent games have been at home and their two losses in their last nine games have both come on the road. In a game with such a short line, I have to back Queens here.
