Tips and Predictions for SE Louisiana and Colorado State
State of Colorado 85, Southeast Louisiana 64
SKIP that juice weighted money line. CSU is a solid game against number.
against the spread
Southeastern Louisiana was led in its maiden triumph by a few underclassmen. This competition against a well-trained Colorado State Five will ensure a significant leap in class.
The Rams are a very good 3-point shooting team. They went from long range in the opener 7 of 13 and have been a strong shooting team at home in the past. The near defeat of the CSU in the opening game plays into this one self-test – and this test gives the Lions a loss of 20 points.
BACK BACK -18.5 (-112).
Free-throw quotas, switching games and tempos make for a murky picture here, and the probability of a CSU defeat doesn’t help either. HAPPEN.
