The Southeastern Louisiana Lions and Houston Baptist Huskies face off on Thursday in a college basketball showdown at the Merrell Center. When these two teams faced off in February of 2020 it was Houston Baptist that won 79-76. These are both teams who have gotten off to bad starts to the season, and this is a key game for both squads.

The Southeastern Louisiana Lions come into this game with a 4-9 record overall and they have gone 3-7 against the spread. In the last game against Iowa the defense really struggled giving up 93 points and that led to the blowout defeat. The Lions are averaging 75.5  points per game while their defense is giving up 75.8 points per game. Gus Okafor has been the top player for Southeastern Louisiana averaging 75.5 points while their defense is giving up 75.8 points per game.There are three different players who are averaging at least 11 points per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Houston Baptist Huskies who sit with a 4-6 record and they have gone 1-5 against the spread. The last game against a D1 team came against Rice, and the defense really struggled giving up 88 points, and that led to the 15 point defeat.

Southeastern Louisiana is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games played on Thursday. The Lions are 1-5 against the spread in their last six games following an against the spread loss. The under is 4-1 in Houston Baptist’s last five games played on Thursday. 

The better team is Southeastern Louisiana and their offense is going to have no issue running up the score. I don’t see Houston Baptist finding enough offensive success to keep this game close, and the Lions will cover the spread.
