It is the second episode of WAC Wager. Kyle and Austin are here to share information, share their picks and thoughts on a busy Thursday night of WAC Hoops.

Yes, COVID is rearing its ugly head with the Omicron variant. And we will see what the new NCAA guidelines say when they come out this week. But, for now, we have four games to focus on.

Austin and Kyle both like Tarleton State -3.5 at home against Sam Houston. The Texans can defend the perimeter and they get after you defensively. The Bearkats are led by Savion Flagg who is a double-double machine. But, what is Sam Houston’s strength in shooting the 3 plays right into the defensive game plan of Tarleton.

Austin and Kyle differ on the GCU at UTRGV matchup in Edinburg. Listen to their different takes on this game. The last time GCU played, the duo was on the same page with their bets in episode one. But on Thursday night, it’s a different story. Listen to their breakdown of this game.

In game three, Kyle decides to put a little underdog sprinkle as the bettors on Wager Talk would say. Chicago State hasn’t won a conference game in nearly four years. March 3, 2018 was the last time the Cougars won a WAC game. And on Thursday night at home against a Seattle team who hasn’t played in nearly two weeks, that streak is in serious jeopardy, according to Kyle. Austin likes the Cougars at +10. Kyle likes the line, as well but is also putting a money line sprinkle in his upset bet on the Cougars.

The final game on the slate is a big one. Stephen F. Austin and Abilene Christian know each other well. They have similar playing styles and a lot of ties between the two squads. ACU hasn’t lost a game at the Teague Center over the past year and half. The Wildcats are 21-0 and have won each of those 21 contests by double figures. This is why Kyle makes ACU -6 as his best bet of the night. Austin, on the other hand, likes the first half under which is set at 66.5.

It should be a fun night of hoops. And, fortunately for now, we have games we get to bet on.
