#665 Furman at #666 Alabama

When and where: Nov. 19, 2019. Coleman Coliseum, Tuscaloosa, AB, 9 p.m.

Furman travels to Tuscaloosa undefeated on the season at 4-0, including two wins on the road, while Alabama is 1-2 so far, with a home loss to Penn in their season-opener. The game is in the mainland portion of the Bad Boys Mowers Battle for Atlantis and will be a tough test for first-year Alabama coach Nate Oates.

Paladins looking to stay hot on the road

Furman won its most recent game, 83-81 at home over Southern Wesleyan on Friday at home, but have also been successful on the road with a win true road game streak that is two games in the current season but extends to eight straight going back to last season.

Noah Gurley led the Paladins with 25 points against Southern Wesleyan. The sophomore was 10-for-10 from the field in the game, which set a record for shooting for players attempting 10 or more field goal attempts.

Jordan Lyons added 11 points and Jalen Slawson and Clay Mounce each added 10. Slawson also added eight rebounds.

Mounce leads the team in scoring with 15.5 points per game while Slawson lead in rebounds (6.5) and shooting percentage (69.6 percent).

The Paladins are ranked 7th in the CollegeInsiders.com Mid Major Top 25 and KenPom has them 70th overall.

Crimson Tide hoping to get back on track at home

Alabama went on the road last week and lost at Rhode Island, 93-79. The Tide trailed by 17 at the half but outscored the Rams by three in the second half. The Crimson Tide shot only 5-of-22 from three-point range and committed 22 turnovers.

Kira Lewis Jr. led the Tide with 21 points while Herbert Jones added 17 and Javlan Davis scored 11.

Alabama fell behind by 22 points in the second half against Rhode Island, but rallied to pull within five

On the season, Lewis leads the team averaging 22.3 points per game and 5.7 assists. John Petty Jr. pulls down 7.7 rebounds per game.

On the injury front, starting guard James Bolden is questionable with a hand injury. The guard is averaging 5.7 points and three steals through the first three games, including 10 points and five rebounds in the opener against Penn.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

On the surface, it would seem a team from the Southern Conference taking on the SEC would be an automatic mismatch, but Furman can make a strong case for success in this game.

First, the Paladins have a very strong offense, averaging 82.8 points per game (52nd ranked), along with a stingy defense that fives up 58.5 points (34th).

The Tide can score as well, averaging 79 points per game (90th) but are terrible defensively, allowing 77.7 points per game (302nd).

Take Furman

Prediction: Furman

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Furman was picked to finish third in the Southern Conference and senior Jordan Lyons was voted to the pre-season all-conference team. The Paladins return four starters from a team that posted 25 wins and reached the Associated Press Top 25 after starting out 12-0. So they shouldn’t be intimidated by an SEC team that comes in with a losing record and a new head coach.

Both teams have potent offenses and the Alabama defense is really bad. That should lead to a high scoring game

Take Over

Prediction: Over
