College Basketball Betting Trends
The Eagles are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games following an ATS win. The under is 4-1 in the last five Coppin State games overall.
The Cougars are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games. Houston is 5-1 ATS in its last six non-conference games.
Houston should win this game by a lot and as long as the spread is 31 or less, I'm going with the hosts. There are only a couple other candidates for worst team in the country and by the end of the season, that spot might be Coppin State's undisputed.
