The Eastern Michigan Eagles tangle with the Central Michigan Chippewas in Tuesday college basketball action.

The Eastern Michigan Eagles snapped a three game skid with a 93-62 rout of Western Michigan as a one point road favorite on Saturday.

Eastern Michigan was up 12 points at the intermission and never let up behind a 47.9%-41.7% shooting edge and eleven more looks.

Elijah Minnie poured in a contest high 29 points and grabbed seven boards to lead the EMU rout while Kevin McAdoo added 16 points and three yanks. 

James Thompson IV gave the Eagles 14 points and 14 rebounds with Paul Jackson contributing 12 points, three pulls and ten assists.

The Central Michigan Chippewas are looking at a three game losing streak after a 76-72 defeat at Toledo on Saturday as a nine point underdog.

Central Michigan was down four points at the break and could only trade baskets the rest of the way with only 36.6% shooting to lean on.

Larry Austin Jr. paced the balanced Chippewas with 18 points, nine rebounds and seven assists while Shawn Roundtree added 14 points and four pulls.

CMU saw the threesome of Dallas Morgan, David DiLeo and Robert Montgomery score ten points apiece and combine for eleven rebounds.

Eastern Michigan Eagles are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and are 12-2 ATS in their last 14 vs. Mid-American and  are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. Central Michigan Chippewas are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall and are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Mid-American. Eastern Michigan Eagles are 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings and are 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Central Michigan.

Eastern Michigan has been disappointing up to this point and the Chippewas have gone through some struggles as well so use caution…

Pick:
Eastern Michigan +3

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
