8* Take Wichita State – Tulsa OVER (#675-676)
Wichita head coach Isaac Brown has made it very clear what he expects from his team tonight: “We’ve got to do a good job getting out in transition….we’ve got to push the pace. If we walk it up and we play against a set defense, it could be a long night….even when they score we have to sprint the ball up the floor.”
College Hoops totals are set by looking at season long pace ratings, as well as offensive and defensive efficiency numbers. When ONE team is looking to change their normal pace of play for ONE game, the markets struggle to make appropriate adjustments; exactly what we’re seeing today. And with Tulsa’s defensive acumen duly noted, the markets aren’t going to make the necessary adjustment for tonight’s game despite the fact that the Shockers have gotten into the 80’s four times in their last five games. Take the OVER.
