Sunday college basketball action pits the Central Florida Knights against the SMU Mustangs.

The Central Florida Knights come off of a 77-68 loss to visiting Houston as a 2.5 point underdog at home on Thursday night.

Central  Florida  dug  themselves  a  15  point  hole at  the break before a second half comeback ran out of steam.

BJ Taylor led the Knights offense with 21 points and seven helpers while Aubrey Dawkins added 13 points and five boards.

Tacko Fall gave UCF another 13 points and six rebounds followed by Terrell Allen and Chad Brown with five points each and ten rebounds.

The SMU Mustangs have dropped three in a row following a 67-66 defeat against South Florida as a five point home favorite.

This was tight throughout with SMU getting outshot 47.3%-42.9% with a 12-4 advantage at the stripe keeping the game close.

Isiaha Mike kept the Mustangs in contention with 18 points and five boards while Jahmal McMurray added 15 points and four pulls.

SMU received 13 points and eight rebounds from Feron Hunt  followed by Ethan Chargois with eleven points, three yanks and four assists.

Central Florida Knights are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall and Central Florida Knights are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. American Athletic Conference.

 SMU Mustangs are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and SMU Mustangs are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. American Athletic Conference. Favorite is 7-3-1 ATS in the last 11 meetings.

This looks like a coin flip type game with UCF looking vulnerable but I’ll still back them…

Pick:
Central Florida +1 (line is now +2.5)

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.
