In the loss to the Racers, SIU-Edwardsville’s Tyresse Williford led the team on 22 points and three boards. Also in double-digits there was Cameron Williams with 12 points and four rebounds with one assist. 

SIUE is 5-2 ATS in their last seven Thursday games and 1-5 ATS in their last six after an ATS loss. The Cougars are 1-6 ATS in their last seven overall and 1-4 ATS in their last five home games.

Morehead’s offense took a dive during that four-game losing streak; the team failed to hit 60 points in any of those. The Eagles have been better scoring-wise over their last two however, with a combined 175 points. 

As for SIU-Edwardsville, things have been tough for them over the last pair, with a combined 113 points during that time. This one might get close when it comes to the cover, but I think a revived Morehead State can power one out.
