The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles and Eastern Kentucky Colonels meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Davis-Reid Alumni Gym.

The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles could use a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles are averaging 68.9 points on 43 percent shooting and allowing 77.4 points on 44.5 percent shooting. Jr. Clay is averaging 12.2 points and 3.6 assists while Micaiah Henry is averaging 11.2 points and 5.2 rebounds. Hunter Vick is the third double-digit scorer and Corey Tillery is dishing 1.1 assists. The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles are shooting 33.1 percent from beyond the arc and 60.3 percent from the free throw line. The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles are allowing 34.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.7 rebounds per game. The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles have lost 10 of their last 11 road games.

The Eastern Kentucky Colonels look for another win to get a game above a .500 record. The Eastern Kentucky Colonels are averaging 86 points on 43.8 percent shooting and allowing 83.8 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Nick Mayo is averaging 23.1 points and 8.2 rebounds while Jomaru Brown is averaging 13.2 points and 1.8 assists. Dujuanta Weaver is the third double-digit scorer and Lachlan Anderson is grabbing 5.2 rebounds. The Eastern Kentucky Colonels are shooting 32.9 percent from beyond the arc and 68.2 percent from the free throw line. The Eastern Kentucky Colonels are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38.2 rebounds per game. The Eastern Kentucky Colonels have won their last seven home games.

The Golden Eagles are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games, 11-3 ATS in their last 14 vs. Ohio Valley and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Colonels are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 Saturday games, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 0-3-2 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. The Golden Eagles are 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Eastern Kentucky and 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings. The over is 7-1-1 in Colonels last 9 overall. The under is 6-1 in Golden Eagles last 7 overall.

The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles are riding a four-game losing streak, as that struggling offense isn't getting much better, and they're losing by an average of 7.9 points in their last five games. On the road this season, Tennessee Tech is losing by an average of 21.7 points while shooting just 38.7 percent from the field. The Golden Eagles have been awful on the road all year, even with their string of recent covers. The Eastern Kentucky Colonels have the offense to really bury lesser opponents and have covered five of their last seven home games. I'll take EKU by double digits.

Pick:
Eastern Kentucky -11.5
