UNC-Wilmington Seahawks (8–17, 7–15 ATS) at James Madison Dukes (7–18, 12–11 ATS)

February, 13th, 2018, JMU Concovation Center

On Tuesday, the Colonial Athletic Association will have one game on the schedule. Our game, UNCW versus JMU, is that game and is one you won’t want to miss. Tip-off is set for 7 P.M ET.

This is the second meeting of the year between them, with UNCW winning 71–68 in Game One.

Seahawks Have Stellar Offense

The Seahawks have had a rough performance this year through 25 games. They started the year with an awful 3–9 non-conference record, but have improved a little bit in conference play (5–8). Most recently, the program beat one of the better teams in the CAA, Hofstra, blowing them out by 20 points at home.

With all that said, UNCW has more than a few things going for them. So far, they rank №2 in points per game among CAA teams, with more than 80 per night. Devontae Cacok, a 6-foot-7 junior, is leading the Seahawks in scoring (17.5 PPG) as well as on the glass (13.4 RPG). On the flip side, their defense is one of the worst in the county. Their 84.4 points allowed per game puts them dead-last in the conference.’

Luckily, the Seahawks have zero rotation players on Tuesday’s injury report.

Dukes Coming Off Big W

The James Madison Dukes have had a rough go of things as well through 25 games. They started the year with a 4–9 non-conference record, followed by three wins in 12 conference games. Most recently, though, the Dukes are coming off a big win. They beat a 17-win Towson team by six points in their last game but had their next two games postponed due to a potential Mumps outbreak.

With all that said, JMU doesn’t do a lot of things above-average, or below-average for that matter. Besides steals per game, which they lead the CAA in, the Dukes mostly float in the middle of the conference rankings. The one highlight on offense is Stuckey Mosley, their best player and leading scorer at 20 points per game. Among all-conference players, Mosley is the second-leading scorer.

Luckily, the Dukes have zero rotation players on Tuesday’s injury report.

Trends:

UNCW:

  • 6–1–1 ATS in the last 8 meetings.

JMU:

  • 2–6 ATS in their last 8 Tue. games.

Although there are a bunch of games on Tuesday’s schedule, the CAA will only have one to offer — our game. JMU will play host to UNCW, with a slated tip-off of 7 P.M ET.

Betting-wise, the best way to go is with the Seahawks. They will be getting a handful of points to work with, which is always important when two bottom-tier teams are playing. As well as the fact that their roster is better from top to bottom. Unlike the Dukes, UNCW has a balanced attack, whereas JMU could implode if Mosley has an off night.

Also, JMU has covered four games in a row so they’re WAY overdue for an ATL loss.
