You should always play on a road team like Oral Roberts when thy are playing on a single day of rest and revenging a home loss against an opponent. This system is 381-273 (58.3%) ATS over the last five seasons. The last game between these teams was decided by four points in favor of Weber State. Oral Roberts shot 52.5% from the field against the Wildcats so they obviously know how to handle their defense. The Golden Eagles had only 23 rebounds in that game which is unlikely to occur again considering they have had over 40 rebounds per game in three of their last four games.
Weber State has played a soft schedule which has inflated this line to be much larger than it should be. Oral Roberts has an advantage from the free throw line shooting 74.5% and they are a good ball control team averaging only 14 turnovers per game. This is a very smart Golden Eagles team that always stays out of foul trouble. They average only 16 personal fouls per game so Weber State will not get a chance to see the double bonus. Oral Roberts should have no problem keeping this game closer than the +9 points we are getting.
