The Murray State Racers (23-8, CONF 16-3)  and Belmont Bruins (25-7, CONF 16-3) face off in the Ohio Valley Tournament on Saturday at the Ford Center. Murray State and Belmont faced off twice this year with the home team winning each of the games. 

Murray State has been having a strong season and they come into this game hot having won four games in a row and covered the spread in the last three games. On Friday night, Murray State defense locked down against Austin Peay giving up only 61 points and that was enough for a 12 point victory. 

Over the last five games Murray State’s defense is giving up only 61 points and if the defense locks down they are going to be in good shape.

Against Austin Peay, Tevin Brown was strong for the Racers putting up 24 points, five rebounds, and three assists. 

Belmont also comes into this game strong having won ten games in a row but in each of the last three games they have failed to cover the spread. 

The Bruins are an elite offensive team and overall this season they are averaging 78.9 points per game while shooting 47.2 points per game. 

On Friday the Bruins offense wasn’t as strong scoring only 60 points but the defense locked won giving up only 50 points. Guard Adam Kunkel paced the Bruins putting up 15 points in 30 rebounds. 

Murray State is 5-2-1 against the spread in their last eight games overall. Belmont is 7-3 against the spread in their last ten games overall. The under is 11-1 in Murray State’s last 12 games overall. 

These are two teams who have had a lot of success this season but this is no getting in the way of the Bruins right now. Look for Belmont to lock down on defense and that will be enough to come away with a win and cover in the spread.
