What to Know

The St. Thomas (MN) Tommies have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. St. Thomas (MN) and the Nebraska Omaha Mavericks will face off in a Summit battle at 8:05 p.m. ET Thursday at Baxter Arena. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W.'

The Tommies entered their matchup against the South Dakota Coyotes on Saturday without any home losses -- but there's a first time for everything. St. Thomas (MN) took an 81-67 bruising from South Dakota.

Meanwhile, Nebraska Omaha came up short against the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles on Saturday, falling 73-64.

Barring any buzzer beaters, St. Thomas (MN) is expected to win a tight contest. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (10-1), so they might be worth a quick bet.

The Tommies are now 14-10 while the Mavericks sit at 7-16. Two defensive stats to keep an eye on: St. Thomas (MN) has allowed their opponents to shoot 46.10% from the floor on average, which is the 31st highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. Nebraska Omaha has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 13th worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 76.3 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
