The Queens Royals and the Lipscomb Bisons meet in college basketball action from the Allen Arena on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
Lipscomb is listed as a 4.5-point home favorite with a ML price of -200. The total for this game is set at 155.5 points.
Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last-minute announcements, both sides will come into this game at full strength.
These two teams have yet to square off on the hardwood.
Queens is 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 road games and 2-6-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall while the over is 4-0-1 in their last 5 road games against a team with a winning home record. Lipscomb is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the under is 10-3 in their last 13 home games.
I get why Lipscomb is favored at home, but I think the value is with Queens here. The Royals have no postseason ahead of them, so every game is basically their biggest game as they want to build some positive momentum into the coming seasons as a D-I team. Lipscomb could use the win here and they’ve been at their best at home, but even if the Bisons win, I could see this being a game where it comes down to who gets the last shot. Give me Queens and the points.
