|Under 167.5 (-114) @ Fanduel|
The set-up: How do you make your O/U picks? What do you base it on? Do you simply look at what each team's point's average is, combined with how much they give up on average and try to figure it out like that? Knowing those stats is just one of the steps that I personally use when making an O/U pick. I also look at what each team has done leading up to that game. I look at the injury report. I look at the past history between each other. And I also look at trends. Both teams have been playing to a lot of high-scoring games of late, but that is helping in driving this posted total a little too high now in my opinion.
The pick: Note as well that The Citadel has seen the total go "under" the number in eight of its last 11 road games after playing to four or more straight "overs," while VMI has seen the total dip below the posted number in five of its last six home games after allowing 80 or more points in a home loss in its last outing (lost 80-78 to Wofford). For all the reasons listed above, the play is the "under."
This is a 10* TOTAL ELITE OF THE ELITE on the UNDER The Citadel/VMI.
