Northwestern St. vs. Texas A&M-CC picks and predictions


Texas A&M-CC 78, Northwestern St. 73



At (-155), considering Texas A&M-CC won both, even on the road, playing the Islanders to win outright has some value. I would ultimately pass to take the spread.

Against the spread

LEAN TEXAS A&M-CC -2.5 (-115).

Texas A&M-CC won just a few weeks ago by 8 and also went to Northwestern State Dec. 31 and won by 6. It has also covered at a much higher rate recently.

The Demons are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games. The Islanders are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games. They also score the 19th-most points per game (80.6) which goes hand-in-hand with the Demons’ main weakness as they allow 72 points per game, 240th-best in the nation.

Considering the trends, back TEXAS A&M-CC -2.5 (-115).


BET OVER 145.5 (-115).

The Islanders play at a fast pace and rank 5th in the nation in free-throw percentage (79.1%), so they should be able to make the most of their opportunities. They scored 83 on the Demons late last month as well.

Texas A&M-CC has gone Over in 3 of its last 4 games and is 17-9 O/U this season. The Demons are 17-13 O/U this season and 2-1 O/U in their last 3 games, having eclipsed 74 in 3 straight as well.

Ultimately, back the OVER 145.5 (-115).
