The George Mason Patriots and St. Bonaventure Bonnies meet Wednesday in college basketball action at the Reilly Center. The George Mason Patriots look for their 10th win. The St. Bonaventure Bonnies look to get above a .500 record.

The George Mason Patriots are averaging 70.9 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 66.3 points on 40.7 percent shooting. Josh Oduro is averaging 12.7 points and 7 rebounds, while Victor Bailey Jr. is averaging 12.6 points and 4.1 rebounds. DeVon Cooper is the third double-digit scorer and Ronald Polite III is grabbing 2.3 rebounds. The George Mason Patriots are shooting 36.7 percent from beyond the arc and 62.6 percent from the free throw line.

The St. Bonaventure Bonnies are averaging 68.2 points on 43.2 percent shooting and allowing 66.2 points on 43 percent shooting. Daryl Banks III is averaging 16.7 points and 3.1 rebounds, while Kyrell Luc is averaging 13.4 points and 4.3 assists.

The Patriots are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Bonnies are 35-17-3 ATS in their last 55 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Patriots last 5 overall. The over is 5-2 in Bonnies last 7 Wednesday games. The favorite is 12-2 ATS in the last 14 meetings.

The St. Bonaventure Bonnies may have the edge at home where they play their best ball, but they also have limitations offensively, and I’m not sure if they have the horses to hang with George Mason. The George Mason Patriots have several guys who can take over offensively, and they’re shooting 48.7 percent from the field in their last 5 games. Toss up game, give me the Patriots.
