At home Tennessee Martin has a 5-5 record and when they struggle it’s because of the defense that is giving up 80.4 points per game. The offense has been fine for the Skyhawks averaging 73.4 points per game overall, but they need the defense to be better in this game.

SIU Edwardsville is 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 games overall. Tennesse Martin is 8-0 against the spread in their last eight games as a favorite. 

The over is 23-8 in UTM’s last 12 home games. The over is 6-2 in SIU Edwardsville last eight road games.
