The Southeast Missouri State Redhawks and Tennessee State Tigers meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Gentry Center.

The Southeast Missouri State Redhawks could use a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Southeast Missouri State Redhawks are averaging 71.8 points on 43.8 percent shooting and allowing 74.9 points on 43.8 percent shooting. Ledarrius Brewer is averaging 14.4 points and 4.8 rebounds while Skyler Hogan is averaging 11.6 points and one assist. Alex Caldwell is dishing 1.9 assists and Isaiah Gable is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The Southeast Missouri State Redhawks are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 67.4 percent from the free throw line. The Southeast Missouri State Redhawks are allowing 29.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.1 rebounds per game. The Southeast Missouri State Redhawks have lost their last six road games.

The Tennessee State Tigers need a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The Tennessee State Tigers are averaging 71.8 points on 42.4 percent shooting and allowing 78.1 points on 47.7 percent shooting. Donte Fitzpatrick-Dorsey is averaging 15.2 points and 4.9 rebounds while Kamar McKnight is averaging 12.6 points and two assists. Michael Littlejohn is grabbing 1.2 rebounds and Armani Chaney is dishing 2.9 assists. The Tennessee State Tigers are shooting 33.4 percent from beyond the arc and 67.6 percent from the free throw line. The Tennessee State Tigers are allowing 37.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.6 rebounds per game. The Tennessee State Tigers have split their last eight home games.

The Redhawks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss. The Tigers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games, 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Redhawks are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Tennessee St and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Tigers last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in Redhawks last 5 road games.

Both of these teams are in awful form, and you could argue the Tennessee State Tigers are in worse shape given that they're allowing 50.7 percent shooting and losing by an average of 10.6 points in their last five games. The Southeast Missouri State Redhawks are 8-4 ATS on the road this season despite their struggles and are only losing by an average of 5.6 points in their last five games. Based on the way these clubs are playing right now and the Redhawks success against the number on the road, there's some value in the free bucket. However, you're really scraping the bottom of the barrel by betting this contest. 

Pick:
SE Missouri State +3
