Fresno State at Coastal Carolina 6:00 PM EST
Line: Fresno State -3
The Championship of the Basketball Classic is this evening between Fresno State and Coastal Carolina, and we are going to take a look at the total as the free pick here. This game was supposed to take place last night, but a travel delay pushed it back to tonight. We do feel Fresno State is the better team, but this is their first true road game in more than 6 weeks, and they weren’t a particularly good road team this season.
Both teams come into this game scoring the ball well as Fresno State has gone for 83 vs Eastern Washington, 80 vs Youngstown State, and 67 vs Southern Utah in this tournament. Coastal Carolina has gone for 66, 84, and 69 in their 3 games and they have been a good scoring team at home this season.
To us, this looks like a low number, especially where it could be a close game and you get some late scoring with free throws that you would not get with a blowout. If you add up what both teams have averaged this year you get 138 points. We acknowledge that Fresno State slows things down and plays solid defense however, if both teams get into the mid ’60s, the over will be a winner.
We expect that to happen tonight at a minimum, so we are going to ride the over 126.5
