What to Know
The Morehead State Eagles and the Tennessee State Tigers are set to square off in an Ohio Valley matchup at 2 p.m. ET Jan. 15 at Gentry Center. The Eagles will be strutting in after a victory while Tennessee State will be stumbling in from a defeat.
Morehead State didn't have too much trouble with the UT Martin Skyhawks at home on Wednesday as they won 76-62.
Meanwhile, Tennessee State was expected to have a tough go of it on Thursday, and, well, they did. They suffered a grim 67-44 defeat to the Murray State Racers.
Morehead State is the favorite in this one, with an expected 7.5-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (5-2), so they might be worth a quick bet.
Morehead State had enough points to win and then some against the Tigers when the two teams previously met in February of last year, taking their contest 74-60. The rematch might be a little tougher for the Eagles since the team won't have home-court advantage. We'll see if the change in venue makes a difference.
