The Cal Baptist Lancers and the Minnesota Golden Gophers meet in college basketball action from the JSerra Pavilion on Monday night.

The Cal Baptist Lancers will be out to build on their 73-64 win over Washington last time out. Joe Quintana leads the Lancers in scoring with 14.7 PPG while Taran Armstrong has 14 PPG with 5.5 RPG and a team-high 5 APG to lead the Lancers in assists as the only other double-digit scorer for Cal Baptist so far this season. Riley Battin also has 9.8 PPG with a team-high 7.5 RPG to lead the Lancers on the glass this season. As a team, Cal Baptist is averaging 64.5 PPG on 40.4% shooting from the field, 30.2% from three and 66.3% from the foul line this season.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers will hope to build on a 68-60 win over Central Michigan last time out. Dawson Garcia leads the Gophers in scoring and rebounding with 17.5 PPG and 7 RPG while Ta’lon Cooper has 11.5 PPG with 4.3 RPG and a team-high 7.5 APG to lead Minnesota in assists as the only other double-digit scorer for Minnesota this season. Pharrel Payne also has 7.8 PPG with 5.3 RPG as well this season. As a team, Minnesota is averaging 63.5 PPG on 44.6% shooting from the field, 35.8% from three and 54.3% from the foul line this season.

Cal Baptist is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 neutral site games while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall. Minnesota is 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 neutral site games while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall.

I get the case to be made for either of these teams, but this line is far too funky for me to try to fet on board with a side, so I’ll side with the under here. These are two teams that like to play a slow pace and play defense and it’s evidenced by these two combining to hit the under in 7 of their first 8 games combined. Give me the under.
