The Bradley Braves are 3-2 this season and they advanced to this game by mounting a big comeback and beating Wofford on Tuesday. Bradley shot 27.8 percent from beyond the 3-point arc and 42.6 percent from the floor as they erased the 11-point halftime deficit to win by 8 points. JoJo McGlaston led the Braves with 14 points and 6 rebounds. Darrell Brown and Antoine Pittman each had 11 points and Koch Bar had 9 points and 10 rebounds. Bradley hasn’t looked good in recent years and they surprised a lot of people on Tuesday.
George Mason is 2-5 against the spread in their last 7 games, 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 non-conference games, and 14-37 against the spread following a win. Bradley is 5-0 against the spread in their last 5 neutral site games, 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 games, and 4-1 against the spread against a team with a losing record.
While the line isn’t out yet for this one I expect it to be a close hard fought game and I see George Mason having the edge because they can hit the 3-point shots.
