(NCAAB) Southern Illinois-Edwardsville vs. Austin Peay, 02/18/2021 8:30 PM, Score: 57 - 79
Total: 143.00 | -110.00 Under
Result: Win
This is a 10* TOTAL BEATDOWN on the UNDER SIU Edwardsville/Austin Peay.

These two teams are coming in off high-scoring games and each knows how to put the ball in the hole, but I think that this particular contest will fall under the number once the smoke clears at the end of the night.

SIU Edwardsville comes in off a listless 86-57 setback to Murray State in its most recent action. The Cougars struggled to put points on the board and they looked terrible defensively.

The Austin Peay Governors will be looking to atone for an 86-81 loss to SE Missouri State last time out (I had SE Missouri State in that one), as they were a 6.5 point favorite in that contest.

Overall the Cougars average 67.6 PPG, while allowing 73.7. Austin Peay averages 75 PPG, while allowing 69.6.

The Governors have also seen the total go under in their last four vs. teams with losing records, while SIU Edwardsville has seen the total dip below the number in its last five vs. teams with winning records.

I think the posted number on this contest is a little too high, the play is the under.

Good luck, NP
