The Wright State Raiders and the IUPUI Jaguars meet in college basketball action from Indiana Farmers Coliseum on Saturday afternoon.

The Wright State Raiders will look to add to their back-to-back wins after a 95-65 dismantling of IUPUI last time out. Tanner Holden leads the Raiders in scoring with 16.9 PPG along with 7.7 RPG while Loudon Love is 2nd in scoring and tops in rebounding averaging a double-double per game with 14.7 PPG and 10.4 RPG. Grant Basile has 13.2 PPG with 6.9 RPG and Tim Finke has 10.2 PPG with 6.3 RPG to make up the group of double-digit scorers for Wright State coming into this rematch with IUPUI. Trey Calvin has 9.9 PPG with a team-high 3.3 APG this season as well. As a team, Wright State is averaging 80.4 PPG on 48.5% shooting from the field, 34.1% from 3-point land and 70.5% from the foul line while giving up 64.8 PPG on 37.6% shooting from the field and 27.9% from 3-point range this season.

The IUPUI Jaguars will try to rebound from their disappointing showing against Wright State last time out. Marcus Burk leads the Jaguars in scoring and steals with 17.4 PPG with 2.5 steals per game while Jaylen Minnett has 14 PPG with 2.1 APG as the only other double-digit scorer for IUPUI coming into this matchup. Elyjah Goss has 7.9 PPG with 9.8 RPG to lead the Jaguars on the glass while Mike DePersia has 6.8 PPG with a team-high 3.5 APG. As a team, IUPUI is averaging 64.6 PPG on 40.1% shooting from the field, 31.6% from 3-point range and 63.7% from the foul line while giving up 72.8 PPG on 48.9% shooting from the field and 31.7% from the 3-point line this season.

Wright State is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road favorite while the under is 4-1-1 in their last 6 games overall. IUPUIis 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 home games. The favorite is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.

This feels like a ton of points to give up with Wright State as the Raiders have had issues covering these bigger numbers and the team that usually has problems covering the first game usually bounce back in the second half of the double dip. However, IUPUI is just horrendous and I think this is just a bad spot as Wright State's the far better team. I'll lay the points with the Raiders in this spot.
