Just off history alone, the Mastodons and the small chalk has to be the play here. That's before mentioning Oral Roberts doesn't play much better at home and enters this contest being outscored by an average of 9.6 points in its last five games. The Purdue Fort Wayne Mastodons own Oral Roberts both SU and ATS. I'll lay the bucket.
