The Rutgers Scarlet Knights have to score to be successful because opponents have put points on the scoreboard. The Scarlet Knights have dropped consecutive contests following a 76-58 loss to Clemson where both ends of the floor struggled. The Tigers jumped to a 12 point lead heading to the locker room and Rutgers never got back in to it. Clemson had a 50%-46.8% edge in marksmanship but the Tigers sank more field goals including threes and free throws. DeShawn Freeman led the Scarlet Knights with 13 points on 4-5 from the floor with DJ Foreman tossing in eleven points. Bishop Daniels chipped in with eight points but their wasn’t enough explosiveness.
Rutgers are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games and are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 Monday games while Rutgers are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 games overall. I am going with Wake Forest who seem to have a few more quality performances but neither team should make you feel warm and fuzzy…
