I really wish CUSA had a 3rd night for hoops each week. Waiting for Thursday sucks. Even if it was just one Tuesday night game a week, I would watch it.

I agree! It would be nice to be able to watch the other teams play a little more.

Two early lines surprise me just a bit: La. Tech by 13.5 over Charlotte and UAB by 10 over UNT.

I think that the home teams will win in both of these games, but I would have guessed the spreads to be half of what they are.

I'm not too shocked by the LT vs Charlotte line. Charlotte is a dumpster fire (no offense to anyone) and I'm still convinced LT is a much better team than their record.

UAB by 10 over UNT feels strong though.

ODU is favored by 6 at USM. They haven't lost at home yet, but their home opponents are, as I copy/paste from Aggie:

OOC
11/10/17 vs. SUNO (RPI 240)
11/20/17 vs. Blue Mountain (????)
12/03/17 vs. Rust (????)
12/10/17 vs. Troy (RPI 223)
12/16/17 vs. William Carey (????)

CUSA
01/04/18 vs. UTEP (RPI 305)
01/06/18 vs. UTSA (RPI 200)
01/18/18 vs. Rice (RPI 333)
01/20/18 vs. North Texas (RPI 210)

So the -6 feels pretty low. But then again I don't bet on ODU otherwise I would have a mild heart attack followed by medium-rare depression. Plus there's no way for me to watch, which would make it even worse. Sorry to make this all about me. Look at me.

Under Doc here are our CUSA home/away records in his 4th year:

2014-15
3-6 at home
1-8 on the road

2015-16
4-5 at home
1-8 on the road

2016-17
5-4 at home
1-8 on the road

2017-18
4-0 at home
1-6 on the road
**we have 5 home games and 2 road games still to play this season**

captain obvious says we've won our 1 road game this year so our games at UTEP and UTSA "will be" losses. Remaining home games are ODU, Charlotte, MT, UAB and LT so if trends continue we "should" go 2-3 as our home win total has gone up 1 a year. Granted this isn't a guarantee but still interesting trends

Those are some tough home games remaining. USM has taken care of ODU more times than not in recent history so I won't suggest this is a lock. I will not be shocked at all if this is a tight game or if USM wins tonight.

Yeah I wish they would, but it would screw up travel arrangements.

It wouldn't have to screw anything up. We only play one game on weeks when we play our travel partners. That game could be played on Tuesday just as easily as on Saturday.

Of course, that would take some imagination and Judy & Co. are still stuck in the "toy jeep" mode of building our brand.

Not shocked if it's a tight game, very shocked if we lose.
