SMU Mustangs Jordan Tolbert

The undefeated Southern Methodist University Mustangs have been rolling in the early stages of the college basketball season, entering Thursday’s home tilt against the Hampton Pirates with a spotless 8-0 SU record. The Mustangs are historically extremely tough to beat at Moody Coliseum, AKA one of the toughest places to play in the nation, and are 6-0 in front of their hometown fans on the year. SMU is 40-3 at home since the start of the 2013-14 campaign.

  • The OVER is 4-1 in the Mustangs' last five games.
  • The Pirates are 7-0 ATS in their last seven games following a straight up win.
