UCF is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS loss while the over is 3-0-1 in their last 4 games overall. Wichita State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games while the over is 8-0 in their last 8 games overall.
I’m looking at the over here. The last meeting didn’t even break 100 points, but I’m thinking that neither team should shoot as bad as they did in the first meeting, now strong defense did have a part in that in the first meeting but Wichita State’s been in a ton of high-scoring games as of late. I think we end up in the 140 range this time around, so give me the over here.
