Central Florida -3 hosting SMU

SMU is 2-8 away from home and struggling without its leading scorer, Shake Milton. The Mustangs have lost their last three road games by nine points each to Houston and Tulsa and by 11 to Connecticut. They are 1-7-1 ATS in their last nine away contests.

The Mustangs are 0-4 SU, 1-3 ATS since Milton was lost with a hand injury.

Central Florida has been pointing to this matchup since SMU knocked it out of the American Athletic Conference Tournament last season.

Even with 7-foot-6-center Tacko Falls out for the season due to a shoulder injury, the Knights have enough defense and rebounding to cover this small number. SMU has been outrebounded by nearly five boards a game on the road. Senior forward A.J. Davis is stepping up for UCF averaging 23 points and nine rebounds in the last two games.

The Knights have covered in 12 of their last 16 home games.
