Central Florida at WICHITA STATE (+2')
By Gus Augustine, Featured Handicapper
One day at a time.
Can't get on a winning streak until you get a winner, and that is exactly what I did last night.
50 Dime Winner on Wake Forest (+9) in their outright win over N.C. State.
I am planning on adding another winner here on Wednesday.
50 Dime Winner # 4 of 5 - Conference Rivalry Lock - Iowa State-Texas Tech.
All about this winner.
Comp play for Wednesday night is Wichita State to stop the bleeding in their home game against Central Florida.
The Wheat Shockers come into this home game having dropped 4 in a row both straight up and against the spread, while the Knights are winners of their last 8 game to improve to 13-2 on the season.
It is clear this is not one of Gregg Marshall's better Wichita State editions, but there is still talent on this year's team, as senior Markis McDuffie is fresh off a 22-point performance, and is second in the conference in scoring with an over 19 points per game average. The Shockers also have another pretty solid senior in Samajae Haynes-Jones who averages over 13 points per game for the year.
Joihnny Dawkins has a UCF team that is capable of making some noise in the month of March, and on paper they should handle their business tonight, but they don't play them on paper, and Koch Arena still holds value for Wichita State even in this "off" season.
Last year, Wichita State won both series meetings, including an 81-62 blowout on their home court over UCF.
This is just the second road game for the Knights since December 2nd, and thus far they stand at 0-2 against the spread thus far in true road games.
Upset alert possible tonight in Wheat Shocker land.
Take Wichita State plus the points.
