DAY 39 NCAA Basketball Thursday (12/15)

Back on track with TWO solid games that will win!

Game Time 12:00 Noon (est)

Elon Phoenix at Presbyterian

FG% 3PT% FT%

Elon 42.3 30.1 69.5

Presb 41.3 28.3 61.8

In points scored Elon ranks 244, Presbyterian 347 out of 364 teams. In points allowed Elon is ranked 300, Presbyterian 171. So it’s a team with one D1 win against a team with none. The lone Presbyterian win came at home from VMI 72-57.

Elon’s scores on average 64, allowing 77 with totals of 141. Presbyterian scores on average 60, allowing 71 with totals of 131. The closest Elon has come to a win was at home vs UNCG in a loss 61-65 and North Dakota 73-77 losing both games by four points. Presbyterian has played tougher competition than Elon (Charlotte, Charleston, South Carolina and UAB) while Elons toughest test was against UNC Greensboro. In a close game I always take the better defense.

TAKE: Presbyterian -5


Game Time 7:00 PM (est)

82 Chattanooga at 73 Middle Tennessee

FG% 3PT% FT%

Chatt 47.3 39.0 73.1

MT 45.4 29.4 63.3

This is a “in a state” rivalry battle. Chattanooga has won the last two head to head meetings 77-65 (HM) and 80-70 (RD). Chattanooga is 5-3 against D1 competition and has won four D1 games in-a-row and outscored opponents by an average of 15 points. They score on average 82 points per game (Ranked 28th in the nation) and are ranked 123rd in points allowed. WHY is Chattanooga getting 5.5+ Points? Chattanooga has scored 81 or more points in three straight D1 games but also allowed over 71 points in those games. They played Milwaukee, G-Webb and Tenn Tech in those high scoring games. Milwauke closely resembles Middle Tennessee but Milwaukee scores more. In that game Chatt won(88-76) On average Chattanooga scores 73.5, allowing 72 with totals of 145.5. Middle Tennessee is 5-3 against D1 competition. They score on average 70, allowing 66 for totals of 136. MTSU is ranked 214 in points scored and 52nd in points allowed. I think Chattanooga is just a better all-around team than MTSU.

TAKE: Chattanooga +5.5
