The Air Force Falcons look for a win here to get a game above a .500 record. The Air Force Falcons are averaging 73 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 69.7 points on 42.4 percent shooting. Sid Tomes is averaging 14 points and three assists while Ryan Swan is averaging 12.7 points and 7.7 rebounds.

The Panthers are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 neutral site games and 7-22 ATS in their last 29 games overall. The Falcons are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Monday games, 21-9 ATS in their last 30 neutral site games and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 non-conference games. The under is 4-0 in Panthers last 4 overall and the under is 8-3 in Falcons last 11 overall.
The High Point Panthers have the rest advantage over Air Force, who had to play Sunday afternoon, but they lack the defense needed to slowdown an Air Force offense that has shown signs of improvement recently. The Air Force Falcons are coming off a solid win over South Dakota and should have a little pep in their step for this contest. In a toss-up game, I give the Falcons the edge over High Point.
