The Tulane Green Wave and the Wichita State Shockers meet in college basketball action from the Charles Koch Arena on Wednesday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Wichita State is listed as a 1.5-point home favorite with a -125 ML price. The total for this game is set at 146.5 points.
Kevin Cross is listed as questionable for this game for Tulane with a shoulder injury while Quincy Ballard is questionable for this game for Wichita State with a back injury.
Tulane’s 67-66 win back on January 29th, 2022, gave them back-to-back wins in this matchup.
Tulane is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS loss while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 road games. Wichita State is 0-6 ATS in their last 6 home games and 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games following an ATS win while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall.
I’m not rushing to the window to bet this game, but I’m taking the under here. I just think this total is far too high for a Wichita State game, even at home against Tulane. The last two meetings have been defensive slugfests and I think this one’s going to be no different. In what I think is a first to 70 wins kind of game, I’m siding with the under here.
