On the season so far, Small leads the Phoenix on 15.2 PPG and 8.4 RPG. Kameron Hankers (11.0 PPG; 2.8 RPG) and TJ Parham (10.4 PPG; 3.2 RPG) are the only other Green Bay players in double-figures so far.
Over on the Belmont side, they’re currently 4-4 on the year. The Bruins have lost their last three games versus Providence, Lipscomb and TCU. IN that TCU game, the Bruins were led by Dylan Windler, with 17 points.
So far this year, Amaze Egekeze leads Belmont with 17.9 PPG and 5.3 RPG, and Windler has 15.9 PPG with 10.6 RPG. The only other Bruin in double-digits is Kevin McClain, with 13.1 PPG and 3.5 RPG.
The Phoenix are 4-1 ATS in their last five Saturday ames and 1-4 ATS in the last five games following a straight-up loss. Green Bay is also 1-5 ATS in the last six games overall and the over is 4-1 in their last five versus the Ohio Valley.
Meanwhile, the Bruins are 5-1 ATS in their last six non-conference games and 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. Belmont is also 5-2 ATS in the last seven games following a straight-up loss and the over is 5-1 in their last six Saturday games.
The Phoenix have some decent scoring up top, they’re just allowing way more points than they can contend with. Belmont is in something of the same boat, they’ve just been cold the last few games and not scoring all that well. All things considered, I think the Bruins can cover here, though.
