Eastern Michigan Eagles
Eastern Michigan has been a tough beat lately winning eight of their last 10 contests and going 8-2 ATS. Their most recent outing was an 83-65 win over Niagara to advance them to the second round of the CIT Tournament.
Their offense has been a little below average in efficiency ranking 214th even though it doesn’t seem like they are that inefficient. The defense is their bread-and-butter as they rank 79th in efficiency.
Eastern Michigan is led by Junior Forwards Elijah Minnie and James Thompson IV. Minnie is averaging 17.1 PPG and 6.2 RPG, while Thompson IV is averaging 14.9 PPG and 11.2 RPG.
The offense has been clicking lately as they have been converting 46.6% of their shots in their last five games. Meanwhile the defense continues to be stout only giving up 62.2 PPG in that span.
Sam Houston State Bearkats
Sam Houston State has been a little consistent in their most recent stretch winning six of their last 10 contests, but they have lost three of their last four.
There isn’t too much to like from this squad as their offense ranks 234th in efficiency, while the defense ranks 194th in efficiency. On a positive note they did manage to pencil in the 50th toughest out of conference schedule.

4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Eastern Michigan -2
This Eastern Michigan team feels wronged thinking they should have been playing in the NCAA Tournament after a two-point loss to Toledo. I like the size advantage of Eastern Michigans and their defense against a weak Sam Houston State offense. The Eagles have shown they are more than capable of playing well on the road going 4-1 ATS in their last five contests on the road.
