Southern Methodist Mustangs
The Southern Methodist Mustangs disposed of their last three opponents with at least 7 points. The New Orleans Privateers were the closest team and other victims were Jacksonville State Gamecocks and Jackson State Tigers. Isiah Miike has averaged 20 points per game to go with 6.7 rebounds and 2.7 assists. Their last matchup, he had 24 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and a steal in 28 minutes. Tyson Jolly had been phenomenal as well with 19.3 points per night with 6.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists. Other players that need to follow the lead of Jolly and Mike are starters Feron Hunt, Everett Ray and Emmanuel Bandoumel.
Players to Watch: I. Mike (20 PPG, 6.7 RG, 3.7 APG), T. Jolly (19.3 PPG, 6.3 RPG, 2.7 APG, 1.7 SPG, 1 BPG), F. Hunt (11.7 PPG, 9 RPG, 1 APG).
Like Evansville, Aces have disposed of their opponents including the Kentucky Wildcats with NBA prospect Tyrese Maxey giving them a tough time. The Aces managed to limit Maxey to just shoot below 50% and their defense has been their biggest asset so far. Other teams that fell to the Aces were Indiana-Kokomo Cougars and Ball St. Cardinals. More than DeAndre Williams that has been their top scorer, it was KJ Riley and Sam Cunliffe that has been picking it up as well. The trio knows when to step up just in case one of them has a good game and is very reliable to take the wheel of the team. Against Kentucky, Riley had 18 points and Cunliffe had 17. In a close matchup with the Mustangs, stopping one of the three aces is a must for them to have a chance to steal the game but with the way that all of them are willing to step up, it would be hard to beat, especially in their home court.
Players to Watch: D. Williams (19.3 PPG, 8.7 RPG, 2.3 APG, 1.7 SPG), S. Cunliffe (13.3 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 1.7 APG), KJ. Riley (12.7 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 2 APG)

Southern Methodist Mustangs vs Evansville Aces Betting Picks
This one is expected to be close but Best Sportsbook gives a thin margin favoring the Aces since it is their home court. There is a fair amount of talent for both teams to make this game tight but the Aces don’t want their streak to end in front of their home crowd. The safer bet is to root for the home team, especially how their trio knows how to pick each other up. On the other hand, the Mustangs need a third scorer behind Mike and Jolly to keep the game close.
Moneyline: Aces are the safer bet here since they are at their home court and they own a decent moneyline of -135. Mustangs are handed the +115 if they pull a victory.
ATS: It is only 2 points that separate both teams across the spread with Aces having the -2.
TOTALS: 140.5 is the given total with the Mustangs expected to go over while the Aces are to go under.
Score Prediction: 75-70, Aces.
