Liberty has been able to stay home for its two CIT games, beating North Carolina A&T 65-52 and Central Michigan 84-71. The Flames have covered the spread in both wins and in four of their last five games. Liberty is 6-4 ATS overall and 3-1 ATS at home. The Flames average just 69.4 points per game this season, but hold opponents to only 65.3 per game.

UIC defeated St. Francis 84-61 to start the CIT and followed it up with an 83-81 win at Austin Peay last week. The Flames have covered the spread in both of those games. They are 16-14 ATS on the season and 10-6 ATS away from home. UIC is averaging 75.3 points per game on offense while allowing 74.3 per game on defense.

The difference in this game should be defense. Liberty is holding opponents to just 63.1 per game at home while UIC is giving up 76.5 per game on the road. Liberty has been strong at home and the week-long layoff for Illinois-Chicago will make it tough for them to get started on the road.
