OVC Tournament Picks, Predictions, Odds

The Murray State Racers punched their ticket into the Big Dance, the first team of any to do so and win their conference tournament game. Murray State gets back into the NCAA Tournament with a four-point win over Morehead State, who gave the Racers all they could handle.

Murray wins the tournament with -225 odds upon entering, as favorites did very well in this event. Favorites won SU in six of the seven OVC Tournament games. This marks Murray State's third OVC Tournament win in the last five years.
