In order to reach the championship game, the Knights had to get through Memphis, which they did easily on Friday in an 84-54 victory as a 2.5-point favorite. The win was Central Florida's sixth in a row and the team has won seven of its last 10 games, covering in six of those contests.

SMU had a little more trouble against East Carolina than Central Florida had with Memphis. After jumping out to a large halftime lead, ECU stormed back before eventually falling, 81-77. The Mustangs came nowhere close to covering the 19-point spread as a favorite, but that was their 14th consecutive victory.

Bet Tonight's College Hoops Action

OUR PREDICTION: The Mustangs are 22-5-1 against the spread in their last 28 games as a favorite and have covered in 10 of their last 11 games versus a team with a winning percentage above .600. They're also 20-6-1 at the betting window in their last 27 games overall, and have covered in 22 of their last 28 games coming off a win. Despite receiving a second-half scare from East Carolina on Friday, SMU should walk away with a double-digit victory today with a conference title on the line.
