The UNC-Greensboro Spartans and the Montana State Bobcats meet in college basketball action from the Place Bell on Friday.

The UNC-Greensboro Spartans will look to build on their 76-72 win over UMBC in their last game. Keondre Kennedy leads the Spartans in scoring and rebounding with 15.2 PPG and 8.8 RPG while Keyshaun Langley has 11.3 PPG with 3 APG and Mikeal Brown-Jones has 11.3 PPG with 5.3 RPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for UNCG up to this point in the year. Bas Leyte also has 6.3 RPG and Kobe Langley has a tem-high 5 APG as well to lead the Spartans in assists this season. As a team, UNC-Greensboro is averaging 71.8 PPG on 40.9% shooting from the field, 34.7% from three and 73.2% from the foul line this season.

The Montana State Bobcats will try to build on an 81-71 win over North Dakota last time out. RaeQuan Battle leads the Bobcats in scoring with 18.2 PPG along with 3.6 RPG while Jubrile Belo has 10.8 PPG with a team-high 5.8 RPG as the only other double-digit scorer for Montana State up to this point in the season. Darius Brown II also has a team-high 3.5 APG to lead the Bobcats in the assist department up to this point in the year. As a team, Montana State is averaging 72.4 PPG on 43.8% shooting from the field, 28.9% from three and 76.6% from the foul line this season.

UNC-Greensboro is 0-8 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 Friday games. Montana State is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 neutral site games while the over is 10-2 in their last 12 games following a win.

I get the case to be made for either side here, but I’m leaning towards the under here. Neither side has been all that special offensively, and the game that they are are normally against subdivision opponents. Both have had some tough opposition this season, but I still think the points come at a premium here. Give me the under.
