George Washington after winning the NIT in their last campaign may feel a little letdown playing in a lower tier CBI Tournament this season. With that said, I’m betting the Colonial’s lack of exuberance will be a hindrance to them in this spot. Meanwhile, Illinois Chicago looks to be on a roll, of late, as was evident when taking out a very good Wis Green Bay program by a 79-70 count in the Horizon League Tournament, and than opening the CBI with 71-69 victory over Stoney Brook. The Flames overall record may not inspire bettors, but Im betting on the energy created by a home court advantage and a chance at upsetting a upper tier team to be a huge motivating factor in the upstart Flames cover tonight.
UIC 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games as an underdog of 6.5 points or less and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games. George Washington is 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games as a favorite and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 road games.IL-CHICAGO is 28-13 ATS L/41 in March games .GEORGE WASHINGTON is 3-12 ATS after having won 8 or more of their last 10 games.IL-CHICAGO is 10-3 ATS when the total is 150 to 159.5 this season.
