SIU-Edwardsville is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS loss and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games after allowing 100+ points in their previous game.
I’m backing Little Rock here. The Trojans may not be winning games often or consistently, but they’re doing a great job at covering the number. SIU-Edwardsville is not only failing to cover games, but in the favorite role, more often than not, the Cougars are losing outright. I’m not sure that ends up being the case here, but I think the Trojans actually hold some value in this spot. Give me the Trojans and the points here.
