Western Kentucky Hilltoppers
Western Kentucky had been beating up on the bottom-feeders in Conference USA before it hosted Old Dominion over the weekend and sent the Monarchs packing after having lost by 22 points.
Western Kentucky is now alone in second-place in the conference and has a chance to earn a share of the lead on Thursday if it can knock MTSU off at its place.
The Blue Raiders beat WKU in Kentucky several weeks ago. Neither team shot particularly well but the Hilltoppers went just 1-for-9 from three in the game. Even at MTSU this time around, don’t expect that to happen again.
That game was close just about the entire way. The Blue Raiders got a little push before halftime that turned out to be the difference in a four-point game.
MTSU Blue Raiders
MTSU needs to win this game to lock up the Conference USA regular season title. Rather, winning this game will lock it up. It can still win later in the week when it finalizes its regular season against Marshall.
As the conference tournament is set up, both of these teams are already in fine position. The first four seeds get first-round byes and will begin play in the quarterfinals on March 8th. This year’s tournament in in Frisco, Texas.
The top three scorers on MTSU can all shoot the three-ball at a tremendous clip. The three average out to 40 percent. You might remember Giddy Potts, one of the stars from the 2016 team that knocked off Michigan State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament as a 15-seed.
Potts shot 50 percent that year, the best in the nation. He shot 38 percent last season and 39 this, though his volume is at an all-time high.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Over is 8-0 in WKU last 8 overall.
- Under is 9-3 in WKU last 12 Thur. games.
- MTSU are 21-7-1 ATS in their last 29 Thur. games.
