KEY INJURIES

BETTING STRATEGIES

Austin Peay defeated UL-Monroe to reach this stage of the CIT. The Governors picked up an 80-66 victory as a 5-point favorite. Illinois-Chicago earned an 84-61 win over St. Francis (PA) in the first round of the tournament.

Both teams have identical 15-14 records against the spread. Austin Peay is 7-6 ATS at home while UIC is 9-6 ATS on the road.

Peay seems to have the edge with its defensive effort. While allowing 72.7 per game on the season, the Governors are holding opponents to just 68.6 per game on their home floor. UIC struggles on the road, allowing 76.1 per game while scoring just 72 per game on offense. I think that will be the difference in the game.
