SMU has some nice wins but this is a banged up team and this is their most losses in four seasons.
Houston looks like they might have assumed the role of the best AAC team in the state of Texas.
SMU has covered just once on the road this season and it was a big one when they upset Wichita State.
The Mustangs are struggling with injuries and Shake Milton, their leading scorer at 18ppg is not expected to play in this one.
They do have some players that can step up but there is no depth left on this team. With no Milton no player outside the starting five averages even 4ppg.
SMU is a strong defensive team but they essentially play all wing players. There it not much inside with this group.
Houston has a tidy record and a couple of nice wins including over the Shockers as well at home. They look tournament bound.
They will definitely look to set a faster pace because that is their preferred method but they are not all that deep either.
Rob Gray is second in the conference in scoring at just over 18ppg. He and Corey Davis Jr are a nice backcourt combination.
These teams are very similar in that they generally play without big present and lots of athletes on the floor.

Free SMU Mustangs vs. Houston Cougars NCAAB Prediction:
Houston has yet to lose a home game this season and will be the favourites on their home turf.
With Milton the Mustangs might have had a chance at the upset but I don’t see them mustering enough offense without him.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: SMU ATS
This should be an entertaining match between two pretty even teams but the Cougars nab it.
NCAAB Free Score Prediction: Houston 74 – SMU 68
