Who Public Bettors Like: Wichita State. As of Saturday morning, 79% of betting tickets and 95% of the money wagered on this game is on the Shockers. The over is also receiving 58% of the betting tickets and 96% of the money for this matchup.

Who We Like: Houston. I love the value with the home dog, although I would bet the spread up to the key number of 4 just to hedge a little. The Shockers are just 2-5-1 against the spread in their last eight road games versus an opponent with a home winning percentage of greater than .600. They've also lost four of their last five games at the betting window coming off an ATS loss and are just 1-5 against the spread in their last six games when facing a team with a winning record.
