Memphis is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games. The over is 4-1 in Memphis’ last 5 games. Wichita State is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. The under is 9-2 in Wichita State’s last 11 home games. The favorite is 6-1 ATS in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.
Memphis has a couple of their best players questionable for this game, which is obviously a big question mark for them. The Tigers have played very inconsistently this season, but have some of the best individual talent in the country. Even with the inconsistent play, I am taking Memphis on the road. I also think there will be a lot of points scored, so the over is worth a look.
