Ohio Valley Tournament Bracket

Ohio Valley Tournament Prediction

The value lies with Murray State here, even with odds set at -175. It's hard to overlook the dominance of the Racers this season given they went a perfect 18-0 in conference play. Head coach Matt McMahon's squad is currently ranked as the No. 22 team in the country, according to the AP poll.

The only other team in true contention here would be Belmont. The Bruins posted a 25-6 record during the regular season and average 78.2 points per game (T-No. 18 in NCAA). It's worth noting that Murray State has beaten Belmont twice this season by a combined 55 points, though.

The Racers have the roster depth capable of making some noise in March Madness. They rank No. 18 in the country when it comes to offensive efficiency and are led by forward KJ Williams. Williams is averaging 18.2 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game during his junior season.

Back Murray State to ride momentum all the way to the program's 18th OVC tourney title.
