Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders vs Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders.


Middle Tennessee did not have much luck on the road this year, but they are the superior team in this contest. In the previous week’s games against opponents they had in common, the Raiders fared better than the Hilltoppers.


In their December matchup, Middle Tennessee outrebounded Western Kentucky 47-36 while also grabbing 14 offensive rebounds.


They shot 36.9% in that game, but they still won, but this time, they need to shoot better as that is about 10% below the season average.


The Raiders will regain possession of the glass, improve their shooting from the previous game, and leave Western Kentucky with a third consecutive victory. Middle Tennessee will win predicted at 73-71.
