Coastal Carolina vs Troy
7:00 PM EST
Coastal Carolina -5 over Troy (win)
The only flaw Coastal Carolina has is they are sloppy with the ball at times, but Troy turns it over just as much so they won’t be able to use that to their advantage tonight. Both teams can dig in on the defensive end, but the offense Troy brings to the court this season just isn’t good enough and it shows in their overall record. This Trojans team can’t hit three pointers and they don’t share the ball. Coastal Carolina is good at shooting the three ball, amazing on the offensive glass and spread the ball around to each other very well. The Chanticleers have really good guard play and should get a nice road win tonight. Take Coastal Carolina.

Indiana State -3 over Valparaiso (win)
Valpo is another bad offensive team that can’t create second chance points on the offensive glass. Indiana State plays great defense and they are active at turning teams over on the defensive end. Bad offenses get worse when they are pressure by aggressive defensive teams. Valpo has always been a tough team at home, but this current squad is just not a good offensive or defensive team. This Crusaders team doesn’t shoot the three ball well and since they are weak on the offensive glass they need to hit a really high percentage of shots to win games. I don’t see that happening tonight against this Sycamores defense. Take Indiana State.

Florida Atlantic -1 over Southern Miss (win)
This should be a pretty good defensive game, but Southern Miss lacks the ability to score and are below average in just about every single area of the game. Florida Atlantic’s one big weakness is their three point defense. The good news is Southern Miss is an awful three point shooting team. Every single advantage tonight leans the way of the Owls. This is a shockingly low line. Take Florida Atlantic.
