Defending Summit League champions Oral Roberts Golden Eagles meet the Western Illinois Leathernecks in the quarterfinals Summit League Conference Tournament On Sunday.
Both teams are hobbling into the postseason as losers from three of their last four regular-season games, but can anyone rush to attempt an automatic bid for the NCAA tournament?
Let’s get into that Sunday game odds via WynnBET:
There wasn’t much line movement in this game other than the total dropping to 166 from 166.5, but we’re looking at two teams who are in the top 25 in the country for goals this season.
Oral Roberts is fourth averaging 83.8 points per game while Western Illinois is 24th and averaging 79.0 points per game. Western Illinois won their final matchup 90-85 while the Golden Eagles won their first matchup 87-86.
Both games went beyond today’s total of 166 and I would expect the same as both teams are terrible defensively. Western Illinois is ranked 334th in opponent’s points per game this season, 351st in opponent’s 3-point percentage, and 307th in opponent’s effective field goal percentage.
Oral Roberts is slightly better, ranking 299th, 179th, and 153rd in their respective categories. While I like the Golden Eagles to win this game, I’m not sure they can cover the 5.5, so guess I think the over is the game what a course meet should be. Both teams are in the top 55 in the country in terms of offensive possession per game.
Lean: OVER 166 (-110)
