Game: Mercer at Utah St. Mar 28 2012 9:00PM
Prediction: Utah St.
Grade: Loser (-110)
Reason: 20* Play on Utah State. Home court advantage is of monumental importance in this game, and we look for Utah State to pull away to a relatively easy victory tonight in the College Insider Tournament Championship Game. Utah State hosts this game, and the Aggies have racked up an impressive 17-4 record record here at home, including four home wins in this tournament.
Even better, Utah State is clicking on all cylinders right now, winning their last three games by a combined 52 points - covering all of those games by an average of 12 points per game. They will once again line up as a medium-sized favorite tonight (lined up as favorites of 6 points, 5 points, and 5 points in their last three games), and we expect another easy cover tonight with their goal set in their sights.
The Mercer Bears have been under the radar in this tournament, winning each of their last three games in this tournament in the road underdog role, but despite that success Mercer is still just 11-8 away from home this season, and their reliance on defense isn't going to be enough to stay close in this game. Utah State has scored at least 75 points in every game so far this tournament, including a 105-point effort their last time out, and the Bears just can't match that type of offensive production. Utah State runs past Mercer tonight and captures the championship! 20* Play on Utah State.
