College Basketball Plays for 1/9/21

**(624)Miami of Ohio -6.5 vs N. Illinois:  Northern Illinois has covered the spread only once in 9 games this season. While Miami of Ohio is no juggernaut, their underlying numbers, especially in their last 3 contests before the hiatus, show marked improvement. Take the home team to cover here.

**(662)Evansville -4.5 vs Illinois State: Evansville is a solid 4-1 ATS at home and should do well vs Illinois State’s sub par defense. There’s enough firepower on the Purple Aces offense to cover here. The diminutive Shamar Givance is playing very well for Evansville and should give the Illinois State defense all they can handle.

**(1699)Tulane +10.5 (FIRST HALF) at Houston: This point spread is too high in my opinion and Tulane should be able to keep things close, at least for awhile. Tulane is a solid 5-3 (62.5%) ATS and 3-1 ATS as an underdog. Houston is tough, but their underlying numbers (assists, turnovers) tell a different story.
