The Tennessee State Tigers (15-10, 7-5 CONF) and the Belmont Bruins (18-7, 9-3 CONF) will meet on Thursday, February 13th for an Ohio Valley Conference matchup at the Curb Event Center in Nashville, TN. The game will be played at 8:00 PM eastern time. 

Tennessee State dropped its last game to Murray State at home, 73-65. That loss snapped a three-game win streak for Tennessee State. This is the first of two meetings between these two teams this season. Belmont is feeling good, riding a four-game winning streak into this game. Their last game was a win over Austin Peay at home, 71-63. 

Tennessee State has a +1.7 scoring differential so far this season. The Tigers have scored 74.3 points per game on an impressive 47.7% FG. The Tigers allow 72.6 points per game to the opposition, which is around the conference average, but below the country’s average. Tennessee State also earns 38.2 rebounds, 14.0 assists, 4.5 blocks, and 5.3 steals per game.

Belmont has a very impressive +11.9 scoring differential this season, which translates to their already impressive record in conference play. Belmont scores 80.6 per game on 47.4% FG shooting, which is definitely above average in terms of the conference. Belmont allows 68.7 points per game to the opposition, which is also above the conference average. Belmont also earns 38.3 rebounds, 18.7 assists, 3.2 blocks, and 7.3 steals per game. 

Tennessee State is 14-9-1 ATS this season and 4-5-1 ATS in their last ten games. Tennessee State is also 7-4-1 ATS on the road so far this season. Belmont is 13-11 ATS this season and 6-4 ATS in their last ten games. Belmont is also 8-2 ATS at home so far this season.

It is hard to imagine a team that is 15-10 would be underdogs by 13.5 points, but that just tells you how good Belmont is. The Bruins should be able to take care of business at home, but this is still a lot of points. I will lean Belmont -13.5, but I do not love it.
