The Indiana-Purdue Jaguars go on the road hoping to slow the Nebraska Omaha Mavericks.
The Indiana-Purdue Jaguars have struggled to get both their scoring and defense on the same page consistently which means wins aren’t piling up. The Jaguars did get both ends of the floor pointed in the same direction in a 77-66 victory at South Dakota on Friday that showed the potential of this team. The Coyotes offense was held to under 41%and 2-15 from long range while the Jaguars sank half their looks and hit more threes and free throws. Darell Combs led the offense with 19 points on 4-6 from down town with Matt O’Leary adding 15 points and five yanks. Evan Hall was next in line with 14 points and eight boards while Mason Archie II chipped in with 10 points.

The Nebraska Omaha Mavericks have been riding their big offense most of the season with great success. The Mavericks have won five of six after squeezing by Western Illinois Friday as an eight point home favorite. The Leathernecks sank shots at nearly 51% with Nebraska Omaha checking in at 46% which was a deficit of six baskets. However the Mavericks owned a 24-7 advantage at the stripe which was a deciding factor. Devin Patterson gave the Mavericks 25 points, six pulls and seven helpers with Jake White adding 20 points and five yanks. Tim Smallwood netted 14 points before fouling out in 22 minutes while Tre’Shawn Thurman scored eleven points and snared seven rebounds.
The under is 9-1 in the Jaguars last 10 Sunday games. The under is 7-2 in Nebraska Omaha last 9 home games and the Mavericks are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall while going 5-11 ATS in their last 16 vs. Summit. In my view I think both teams are risky and both are capable of covering so do with this as you will…
