Wichita State Shockers
Wichita State lost its seven-game winning streak with a loss to SMU earlier this week. It was Wichita State’s first loss ever in the American Athletic and dropped the Shockers off the pace set by Cincinnati at the top of the standings.
The opponent wasn’t such a surprise as much as it was that the game was in Wichita. The Shockers have been just about unbeatable at their place in conference play since this great run under Gregg Marshall started but that was in the Missouri Valley.
This will be a wake-up call for one of the best teams in the country.
Landry Shamet led the team with 20 points and ten assists but he didn’t get much help.
The Shockers and Mustangs each made 11 threes but SMU did it on eight fewer attempts. Thirty three-pointers is a lot for WSU to attempt and it would surprise me if Gregg Marshall didn’t make it a point for his team to get into the paint on Saturday.
This is the second meeting of the season between these two teams. Houston went to Wichita a couple of weeks ago and lost by 18 points. The Coogs would be tied with the Shockers in the standings, however, had they taken care of Tulane in their last game.
The Green Wave beat Houston in New Orleans, though.
The Shockers held Rob Gray in check in that game but he’s had some big scoring performances since then, hanging 34 on Tulsa and 24 on Tulane. Wichita State will throw everything at stopping him again so Gray better be ready to make adjustments.
CBB Betting Trends:
- WICH are 47-23-1 ATS in their last 71 road games.
- Over is 8-3 in HOU last 11 home games.
Free Wichita State vs. Tulsa NCAAB Prediction: the Shockers bounce back with a road win.
I may not pick against Wichita State again before the NCAA Tournament. I still believe this team is a Final Four contender and might offer some value on the road after its first conference loss.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: WSU -2.
