I get that this is a huge number and Evansville hasn’t been too bad at covering numbers until recently, but a lot of the recent performances have shown signs of Evansville regressing back to the laughing stock of the MVC that this team has been in recent years. It started out with three point losses back-to-back, now it’s back-to-back double-digit losses and I think a 3rd straight is on tap. Evansville has one of the worst defenses in the MVC, sitting last in 3-point defense and 9th in 2-point defense as well as 2nd-worst in defensive efficiency. Belmont is far better on offense, they hit their free throws and can take advantage of a porous Evansville perimeter defense. Evansville’s offense has been capable, but I don’t think they keep this one close on the road. Evansville has nothing but pride to play for here, as they’re locked into their spot in the MVC tournament while Belmont needs to win to have a shot at a top-four seed and a first round bye in the MVC tournament. Give me Belmont big here.

Chris’s Pick Belmont Bruins: -10.5 -110
