The public is backing Western Kentucky tonight. As of Tuesday morning, the Hilltoppers are getting 56 percent of the wagers on this game as the slight favorite against Utah.


Western Kentucky doesn’t have anyone listed on the injury report for tonight’s game. Utah forward David Collette is listed as probable to play despite a back injury. Collette averages 12.5 points and 4.5 rebounds per game for the Utes.


Western Kentucky has defeated Boston College at home and went on the road to beat USC and Oklahoma State. The Hilltoppers have covered in all three victories and have covered in five of their last six. WKU is 23-12 against the spread on the season and 14-6 ATS on the road. The Hilltoppers averages 78.7 points per game on offense while allowing 70.9 per game on defense.

Utah has picked up wins at home over UC-Davis and LSU while going on the road to top St. Mary’s in the NIT Tournament. The Utes are 2-1 against the spread in this three-game run. On the season the Utes are 17-11-3 against the spread overall and 7-7-1 ATS away from home. Utah is scoring 73.9 per game on offense this season and allowing 68.2 per game on defense.

Western Kentucky may not have the name power that Utah does, but the Hilltoppers have looked really impressive in this tournament. Over their last six games, they are 5-1 with a 1-point loss to NCAA Tournament first-round winner, Marshall. I think WKU is going to continue its success tonight. It already owns a win at USC, a Pac-12 team like Utah. The Utes just lost by 16 at home to USC near the end of the regular season.
