On the other side of this matchup is the Southeast Missouri State Redhawks sitting with a 9-14 record overall but they have won two games in a row. Overall, Southeast Missouri State is averaging 68.8 points per game so their scoring outburst on Saturday was a bit surprising. The defense at times has been an issue giving up 71.2 points per game. Guard Chris Harris has been the best player for Southeast Missouri State averaging 12.5 points while shooting 35.7 percent from the field. 

Eastern Kentucky is 16-6 against the spread in their last 22 games overall. Eastern Kentucky is 25-10-2 against the spread in their last 37 games overall. The home team is 5-2 against the spread in the last seven meetings played between the two squads. 

I expect Southeast MIssouri State is going to run up the score again and Estern Kentucky will also find all kinds of offensive success. Look for both teams to run up the score and for the over to cash with ease.
