The favorite is 10-2-2 ATS in the last 14 meetings. The home team is 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings.

The home team has won six of the last 10 meetings between UL Lafayette and Troy. The UL Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns are losing on the road by an average of 12.7 points while shooting just 37.8 percent from the field and 28.6 percent from deep. The Troy Trojans may be in a bit of a slump, but they still win at home by an average of 5.2 points while holding teams to 41.7 percent shooting from the field. In a true pick em contest, I'm going to side with Troy at home. The UL Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns may be playing the better basketball overall, but they can't be trusted on the road.
