This is a 1* Free Play on the Houston Cougars.
I am taking a long look at Houston here in the first round of the Athletic Conference tourney. Note that the Cougars played Southern Methodist pretty tough this season with the average margin of difference between these teams being just 5.5 points. Larry Brown’s team isn’t exactly lighting up the world here with two straight losses coming into this game. The Mustangs turned the ball over 40 times in the last two games, resulting in 37 points to Memphis and Louisville. SMU is led by Nic Moore who averaged a team high 13.9 points per game. Houston meanwhile finished off the season very strong with four wins in five contests. With Houston coming in with double revenge on their minds look for this game to be pretty close. SMU has blown leads in both its’ previous games and I think that leads the team to be a little bit fragile heading into this tournament. It should also be noted that SMU is just 3-10 ATS on neutral courts the past three seasons and has gone 2-4 ATS versus Houston the past three seasons overall. Houston is 9-7 ATS as the underdog and 12-9 ATS when revenging a road loss to an opponent this season. While I agree that SMU should be the favorite, this is a few too many points for me to lay in a tournament game. Consider taking the points.
