HOUSTON (-5.5) over Central Florida
7 p.m. ET
We had another easy NBA winner last night on Orlando, running the FREE PICK record to 10-2 on our last 12 selections!
Typically we would not want to lay points on the road with Houston against a team it already blew out by 24 points just two weeks ago, but since the Cougars are coming off a loss to Temple in their last game, we expect a fully focused effort and no signs of a letdown. Central Florida is a disaster right now and has been non-competitive against winning teams this year, going 2-7 ATS. In fact, the Knights have lost eight of their last nine games overall, and those eight losses have come by an average of 12 points per game. As mentioned, the Cougars cruised to an 82-58 win over UCF on Feb. 13 and in that game they held a dominating edge on the boards and in assist/turnover margin and we’ll call for a similar disadvantage tonight for the Knights. Road chalk rolls!
