SE Missouri State vs Texas A&M-CC Odds

team spread money line In total
Southeastern Missouri Redhawks +4 (-117) +139 O 156 (-110)
Texas A&M Corpus Christi Islanders -4 (-117) -194 O 156 (-110)

Last year, the Islanders found themselves in the same situation, but suffered a 76-67 loss to Texas Southern, preventing them from reaching the official first round of the competition. This time around, Texas A&M-CC are four-point favorites after winning both their regular-season and conference tournament titles.

The over/under total is a pretty high 156 points for two teams that score a lot and don’t defend very well at all. Combined, SE Missouri State and Texas A&M-CC top the overall betting this season 39-22-1. That’s a 62.9% mark for making the over.

SE Missouri State looks set to continue the game’s stunning run

Bracket-busting surprises in the March Madness bracket make plenty of headlines, but conference tournament surprises mostly stay under the radar.

A big longshot that won four straight conference tournament games to secure a spot in the first four is SE Missouri State. The Redhawks finished the regular season with a record loss but continued to win four games in four days and overwhelmed their league opponents en route to capturing the Ohio Valley Conference tournament crown.

Offensively, the Redhawks have been buzzing for the past month, averaging 84 points per contest during that span. Still, they were a great bet on the over, beating the predicted total in six of their last seven matchups.

Texas A&M-CC worried about mixed results in the top four

A year later, Texas A&M-CC find themselves in just that situation. The Islanders have never won a March Madness tournament game 2-0 in program history, including last year’s loss to Texas Southern.

If they emerge victorious in that game, they’ll earn a date with one of the odds-on favorites to win the NCAA tournament, the Alabama Crimson Tide in the South Region.

Unfortunately, the Islanders will be missing a key component of their squad no matter how long they play the rest of the year. Guard Terrion Murdix was only able to play three minutes in the Conference Championship due to a knee injury, which will prevent him from playing next month. He is the team’s third-best scorer.

In their last five games, Texas A&M-CC has netted more than four times four times, averaging 82.2 points on offense in those competitions. Playing against good teams usually results in the best performances for this team, which has been 6-0 ATS in their last six games against teams with a straight winning record.

SE Missouri State vs. Texas A&M-CC Selection and Prediction

The Islanders have won 12 of their last 13 games, going 10-3 against the span during that impressive run. Like their opponent in this matchup, they also hit the ball at an impressive rate and ranked 19th overall in points per game nationally.

SE Missouri State vs Texas A&M-CC head-to-head stats

77.2 (55th) points/game 80.6 (19th)
76.5 (337th) Points Allowed/Game 72.9 (264th)
43.7 (242nd) FG% 45.4 (138th)
32.6 (275th) 3PT% 36.6 (61st)

While SE Missouri State has been on a tremendous run, you’re wondering if the long break between games could hurt their momentum when entering this competition. Their last game was on March 4th, meaning this will be their first real action in 10 days.

Despite having good odds against the spread year-round, they struggled against better competition and only went 6-9-1 ATS this season when facing teams over .500.

Murdix’s absence is a costly loss for the Islanders, but they were able to emerge victorious without him in their conference championship against Northwestern State. Our prediction is that Texas A&M-CC will use last year’s First Four loss as motivation and move on with an emphatic win over the Redhawks.

Choice: Texas A&M-CC -4 (-117)
