The SMU Mustangs and the Wichita State Shockers meet in college basketball action from the Charles Koch Arena on Sunday afternoon. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Wichita State is listed as a 6.5-point home favorite with a ML price of -294. The total for this game is set at 138.5 points.
SMU comes into this game with a clean injury report while Quincy Ballard is questionable for this game for Wichita State with a back injury.
Wichita State’s 71-69 win over SMU back on January 22nd, 2023, made it six straight wins for Wichita State in this head-to-head matchup.
SMU is 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games following an ATS win. Wichita State is 1-8 ATS in their last 9 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall while the over is 10-1 in their last 11 games overall.
I’m sticking with the over in this one. Both teams have been ending up in some high-scoring games as of late, which is a bit surprising, but Wichita State has actually played to nine straight overs and SMU’s been scoring in bunches in recent games. We should be able to get into the 140s no problem given the current form of these two so give me the over.
