The NJIT Highlanders and the Bryant Bulldogs meet in college basketball action from the Chace Athletic Center on Thursday night. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
The Bryant Bulldogs are listed as 11.5-point home favorites for this game with a ML price of -800 and the over/under is set at 150.5 points.
NJIT comes in with a clean bill of health for this game while Kvonn Cramer is listed as questionable for Bryant with an illness.
These two teams haven’t met since the 2009 season when they split the two head-to-head meetings.
NJIT is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games and 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 road games. Bryant is 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 while the under is 8-3 in their last 11 home games.
I’m leaning towards NJIT here. Bryant has definitely cooled off a fair bit from being the team that was lighting scoreboards ablaze earlier this season while NJIT may not be winning games, but they’ve been competitive, especially as double-digit underdogs. I’m not saying NJIT wins outright but an 8-9 point Bryant win is something I could definitely see for this game. Give me the Highlanders and the points here.
