The Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks lost both of their matches to the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs last season on scores of 62-78 and 57-68, so they’re hoping to turn the tables this season. They will face off against one another at 7:30 p.m. ET Wednesday at Thomas Assembly Center. These two teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

Louisiana-Monroe has more to be thankful for after their matchup against the NW State Demons on Monday. The Warhawks put the hurt on NW State with a sharp 96-66 victory.

Meanwhile, Louisiana Tech strolled past NW State with points to spare last Friday, taking the game 83-64.

Louisiana-Monroe have to know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the 16.50 point spread they are up against. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn’t have high expectations for them since the team is 0-2 ATS when expected to lose.

The wins brought Louisiana-Monroe up to 2-2 and the Bulldogs to 3-1. A pair of stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Warhawks come into the contest boasting the 10th most steals per game in college basketball at 12. Less enviably, Louisiana Tech has allowed their opponents an average of 8.5 steals per game, the 33rd most in college basketball. In other words, they will need to work extra hard to take care of the ball.
