What to Know

The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles and the Tennessee State Tigers are even-steven against one another since January of 2016 (6-6), but not for long. The Golden Eagles are on the road again Monday and play against Tennessee State at 2 p.m. ET Jan. 17 at Gentry Center. The teams split their matchups last year, with Tennessee Tech winning the first 74-71 at home and the Tigers taking the second 91-86.

Tennessee Tech didn't have too much breathing room in their matchup with the UT Martin Skyhawks this past Saturday, but they still walked away with a 76-70 victory. It took nine tries, but Tennessee Tech can finally say that they have a win on the road.

Meanwhile, Tennessee State came up short against the Morehead State Eagles this past Saturday, falling 71-64.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Golden Eagles are expected to win a tight contest. But bettors beware: they are only 1-3 against the spread when favored.

Tennessee Tech's victory lifted them to 4-11 while Tennessee State's defeat dropped them down to 6-10. We'll see if Tennessee Tech can repeat their recent success or if the Tigers bounce back and reverse their fortune.
