The Wichita State Shockers and SMU Mustangs face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at Charles Koch Arena. These teams were supposed to face off on Thursday in Texas, but the game was postponed because of weather. When these two teams faced off in March of 2020 it was Wichita State that won 66-62. 

Wichita State comes into this game with an 11-8 record and they have gone 8-11 against the spread. In the last game against Tulsa, the defense was elite giving up only 48 points and that led to the victory. Wichita State is averaging 67.9 points per game while their defense is giving up 64.3 points per game. Tyson Etienne has been the best player for Wichita State averaging 14.4 points while shooting 34.3 percent from the field and 32.7 percent from behind the three point line. There are three different players that are averaging at least 10 points per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is the SMU Mustangs who sit with a 16-4 record and they have gone 10-10 against the spread. In the last game against Temple the defense gave up only 61 points and that led to the eight point victory. SMU is averaging 76 points while their defense is giving up 66.8 points per game. Guard Kendric Davis has been the top player for SMU averaging 20.1 points while shooting 45.6 percent from the field and 38.8 percent from behind the three point line.

Wichita State is 0-4 against the spread in their last four games following an against the spread win. The under is 4-0 in SMU’s last four games. The under is 4-1 in Wichita State’s last five games. SMU is 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 games following a straight up win.

Even with Wichita State at home, I don’t trust them. Wichita State has struggled after covering spreads, and they are going to have issues again in this game. Look for SMU to push the pace of the game, and they will cover the spread.
