UC-Santa Barbara Gauchos vs. SMU Mustangs NCAAB Free Pick
Play On: SMU Mustangs -6.5.
Larry Brown has his SMU Mustangs off to a nice 5-3 start and their actually better than their record indicates. The Mustangs have played the 16th ranked schedule in the nation with 2 of their losses coming to teams ranked in the top 25. UCSB is far from a top 25 ranking, and they’ll have their hands full tonight on the road.
SMU is getting the job done on the offensive side of the court. Nic Moore, Yanick Moreira, and Ben Moore are all averaging double figures. Keith Frazier is right behind at nearly 10 points per game, so they’re doing a very good job of spreading the ball around. SMU is also more battle tested than many might think, as they’ve played the 16th toughest schedule in the nation. Don’t overlook that stat, as it gives them a huge advantage when an inferior opponent like UCSB comes into their arena.
Santa Barbara is far from chop liver. They too have played a difficult schedule and have a winning record. However, they haven’t won a game on the road all season and haven’t beaten a team of any significance either. Take SMU.
