If executed properly, the opposing team will be unable to stop the clock by stepping out of bounds, as you force them to throw it inside the hash marks and they can't score a quick strike because you keep them from going over the top on you.

you let them dink and dunk their way to a score while they also run more time off the clock.

As for the mental advantage....when your opponent is throwing on damn near every play, they know, as does everyone else that the probability of them winning is slim.
