The 11-11 Quinnipiac Bobcats will go on the road Friday night to face off with the 11-11 Saint Peter’s Peacocks at 7:00 PM ET in the Yanitelli Center. The Peacocks are 6.5-point home favorites and we’re looking at a 137 over/under. Neither of these teams are very strong on defense, with both averaging under 70 points per game. They are, however, strong three-point shooting teams and it’ll be interesting to see how many shots behind the arc get fired in this one. Vegas expects the Peacocks to keep it rolling, but the Bobcats are the last team to just lie down and give up.

Bobcats struggle of late

The Quinnipiac Bobcats have struggled mightily of late, losing each of their last three games and six of their last eight. They most recently lost a 65-63 heartbreaker to the Manhattan Jaspers in a game they were favored at home in. Pauly Paulicapwas too much to handle for the Bobcats as he posted 15 and 8 boards. The Bobcats were held to just 39% from the field and they’ll need to play much better offense if they want to win this game.

The Bobcats are an underwhelming team on paper, as they score just 69.6 points per game and shoot 41.8% from the field. Where the Bobcats excel is at sharing the ball, as they rank 107th with 14 assists per game. Rich Kelly is the heart and soul of this offense and he averages 16.2 points per game with four boards and two assists. Just one other player averages double-figures, so they’ll lean on Kelly heavily.

Peacocks win five of six

Opposite of the Quinnipiac Bobcats are the St. Peter’s Peacocks, who have won five of their last six games. They most recently beat the Monmouth Hawks 81-69 in a game that was never close. Three Peacocks teacher double-figures with Quinn Taylor leading the way with 15. Cameron Jones added a season-high 14 off the bench and the Peacocks were ultimately just too much to handle.

The St. Peter’s offense is a strange one, as not a single player averages over nine points per game. KC Ndefo leads the way with 8.3 PPG and nine players average over five points per game. It’s a strangely balanced attack that has worked well of late as it seems like these guys switch off on who has the hot night. They’ll need a couple of guys to step up once again against a Quinnipiac defense that will play tight from start to finish.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Neither of these offenses are any good, and the Quinnipiac Bobcats are getting too many points on the road here. While St. Peter’s has looked strong of late, the Bobcats are itching for a win and I expect Rich Kelly to have a big game. He is a funky matchup for the Peacocks and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him score over 20 points. I’ll take the underdog Quinnipiac Bobcats all day in this one.

Prediction: Quinn 20

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

These are two of the worst offenses in the entire country and there’s no way I see this game getting over 137 points. I expected this game to come in around 125 and was shocked to see it this high. Neither of these offenses shoot over 40% from the field and both defenses are going to make it tough on each other. Expect a defensive, low-scoring battle that results in a lot less than 137 points. 

Prediction: Under 137
