The Oral Roberts Golden Eagles and the Wichita State Shockers will meet up in college basketball action on Wednesday. 

Oral Roberts enters this matchup at 4-9 on the season thus far. The Golden Eagles’ victories have come against Southwestern Kansas, Ecclesia, James Madison and Richmond. 

In the Spiders game, Oral Roberts’ Aidan Saunders was the only player on the team in double-figures with 15 points. Emmanuel Nzekwesi had a nice outing on the boards for the Eagles on 12 rebounds and eight points there. 

Over on the Shockers’ side, they’re 6-4 this season. Wichita State has recorded victories over Providence, App State, Rice, Baylor, JSU and Southern Miss so far. 

In the Southern Miss game, Wichita State’s Jaime Echenique posted a double-double on 17 points and 11 rebounds. Markis McDuffie also put up 17 with eight rebounds, and Samajae Haynes-Jones provided 11 points for the Shockers. 

Oral Roberts is 3-0-1 ATS in their last four non-conference games and 3-0-1 ATS in their last four road games. The Eagles are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four overall and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six Wednesday games. 

Meanwhile, Wichita State is 5-12 ATS in their last 17 overall and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 home games. The Shockers are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 following an ATS loss and 0-4 ATS in their last four Wednesday games. 

There’s not a whole lot to get excited about with Oral Roberts right now, though they do have a couple of talented players on the top end. Even so, the Eagles are pretty inconsistent when it comes to putting up points. 

Wichita State hasn’t exactly been blowing up the scoreboard lately either, but I don’t think they’ll have too many issues here. I’m going Shockers.

Pick:
Wichita State Shockers -14.5
