The Tigers are expected to lose this next one by 8.5. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 2-0 against the spread when expected to lose.
Texas Southern is now 0-2 while Washington sits at 1-1. Two last-season offensive stats to keep an eye on: Texas Southern is stumbling into the game with the 48th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 73.9 on average. Washington has only been able to knock down 31.10% percent of their shots, which is the 356th lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
