The Southern Indiana Screaming Eagles and the Tennessee State Tigers meet in college basketball action from the Gentry Complex on Saturday afternoon. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Tennessee State is listed as a 4.5-point home favorite with the total for this game set at 155.5 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.
Tennessee State won the lone meeting between these two teams back on February 2nd, 2023.
Southern Indiana is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss while the over is 9-2 in their last 11 games overall. Tennessee State is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games while the over is 9-3 in their last 12 home games.
I’m sticking with Tennessee State. Southern Indiana’s done a great job in their first D-I season, but the problem here is that Tennessee State has done a great job this season, especially at home where they’re 13-3 at this season and they’ve won their last four home games all by double-digits and a win here is important considering that if Tennessee State gets the #2 seed, they get a double-bye into the semi-finals, but if they somehow end up in 5th, they have to play a first-round game. I think you see a concerted effort from the Eagles here, so give me Tennessee State laying the points.
