The Indiana State Sycamores and San Jose State Spartans meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Event Center.

The Indiana State Sycamores look for another victory to build on their three-game winning streak. The Indiana State Sycamores are averaging 70 points on 39.4 percent shooting and allowing 71.3 points on 40.9 percent shooting. Jordan Barnes is averaging 20.3 points and 4.3 rebounds while Tyreke Key is averaging 19.3 points and 2.8 assists. Devin Thomas is grabbing 5.3 rebounds and Clayton Hughes is dishing two assists. The Indiana State Sycamores are shooting 51.2 percent from beyond the arc and 69.7 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana State Sycamores are allowing 26.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34 rebounds per game. The Indiana State Sycamores have split their last eight road games.

The San Jose State Spartans could use a win here that would snap a five-game losing streak. The San Jose State Spartans are averaging 69 points on 42.8 percent shooting and allowing 74.2 points on 44.1 percent shooting. Brae Ivey is averaging 13.5 points and six assists while Michael Steadman is averaging 13.3 points and 9.8 rebounds. Craig LeCesne is the third double-digit scorer and Christian Anigwe is grabbing 3.8 rebounds. The San Jose State Spartans are shooting 38.5 percent from beyond the arc and 69.1 percent from the free throw line. The San Jose State Spartans are allowing 29.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.6 rebounds per game. The San Jose State Spartans have lost 11 of their last 13 home games.

The Sycamores are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Wednesday games, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. Mountain West and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Spartans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The over is 10-4-1 in Sycamores last 15 road games and 36-17-2 in Sycamores last 55 overall.

The Indiana State Sycamores are coming off a nice win over Western Kentucky and are currently the best three point shooting team in college basketball. The San Jose State Spartans may be awful SU, but they've been on the wrong side of some very close losses, which includes a one-point loss to Cal. State - Bakersfield and a two-point loss to Central Michigan just this year alone. There's value in finding bad teams that compete hard, as they can consistently keep you within the number despite the losses piling up. I'll take the points.

Pick:
San Jose State Spartans +7
