The PFW Mastodons and the Robert Morris Colonials meet in college basketball action from the UPMC Events Center on Thursday night.

The PFW Mastodons will look to build on their five-game win streak after an 83-59 win over Southern Indiana last time out. Jarred Godfrey leads IPFW in scoring and assists with 15.7 PPG and 4.5 APG along with 5.6 RPG while Bobby Planutis has 12.8 PPG with 4.9 RPG as the only other double-digit scorer for IPFW up to this point in the year. Ra Kpedi also has a team-high 7.8 RPG to lead the Mastodons on the glass. As a team, Purdue Fort Wayne is averaging 77.3 PPG on 44.6% shooting from the field, 34% from three and 68.8% from the foul line this season.

The Robert Morris Colonials will try to build on a 77-66 win over Saint Francis PA last time out. Enoch Cheeks leads the Colonials in scoring with 16.8 PPG while Kahliel Spear has 13.8 PPG with a team-high 7.5 RPG to lead the Colonials in rebounding. Josh Corbin has 13.4 PPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Robert Morris this season while Michael Green III leads the Colonials in assists with 4.9 APG this season. As a team, Robert Morris is averaging 69.2 PPG on 44.8% shooting from the field, 38.3% from three and 64.5% from the foul line this season.

PFW is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a win while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 road games. Robert Morris is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS win while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600.

I get the case to be made either way here, but I like the over in this one. These matchups between the Mastodons and Colonials have been high-scoring, whether they’re one-sided or not, as the 4 all-time meetings have gone over the number. I think we have another entertaining one brewing here, so give me the over here.
