Texas State Bobcats vs Troy Trojans prediction

The Troy Trojans have been the better team this season, and they're 18-9-1 ATS on the season, so I understand why they're favored. However, the Texas State Bobcats are playing some of their best ball of the season with 5 straight wins, and they just beat Troy last week in overtime as a 5 point underdog. The Texas State Bobcats has saved their best ball for last, and they're a dangerous team in the rest of this tournament. Troy also hasn't played in a week, so who knows how it's going to look. Give me Texas State and the points.
