The Tennessee Tech Golden Eagles and the Tennessee-Martin Skyhawks meet in college basketball action from Elam Center on Thursday.
Tennessee Tech enters this game at 5-18 so far. Since their last win over Morehead State, the Eagles have lost three straight to Eastern KY, Belmont and Tennessee State.
In the OT loss to the Tigers, Tennessee Tech’s Jr. Clay put up the team lead on 21 points with five rebounds and five assists. Hunter Vick added 15 points with four rebounds there, and Keishawn Davidson had 14 points with six rebounds and four assists.
Over on the Tennessee-Martin side, they’re 6-15 this year. Since taking out SIU-Edwardsville on January 25, the Skyhawks have lost consecutive games to Eastern Kentucky and Morehead State.
In the loss to the Eagles, Tennessee-Martin’s Parker Stewart led the team with 33 points, eight rebounds and two assists. Quinton Dove had 24 points with 13 rebounds there and Derek Hawthorne had 18 points.
The Skyhawks are 1-4 ATS in their last five Thursday games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven after an ATS loss. TN-Martin is 1-5 ATS in the last six overall and the over is 23-4 in their last 27 overall.
Meanwhile, the Eagles are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games and 5-14 ATS in their last 19 overall. The over is 11-4 in Tennessee Tech’s last 15 overall and 6-1 in their last seven road games.
Up until their 67 points in the OT loss to Tennessee State, the Golden Eagles had been on a decent scoring run with at least 71 points in three straight games. Thing is, the two losses during that time weren’t especially close.
As for Tennessee-Martin, they’ve posted at least 77 points in five straight games and shouldn’t have too many issues scoring here. This should finish on the high side points-wise, and I like the Skyhawks to hang on and cover.
