Bucknell’s won back-to-back games in this head-to-head matchup after a 78-71 win over American back on February 1st, 2023.
American is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400. Bucknell is 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning record while the under is 7-1 in their last 8 home games.
I’m leaning towards Bucknell here. The underdog’s covered in 5 of the last 6 meetings between these two teams, and while American’s done a good job making their shots, they just don’t seem to really be scoring enough to have much to show for it. Bucknell isn’t the same money maker we’ve rode to glory in years past, but they’re outscoring teams by 3.2 PPG at home while American’s being outscored by 1.3 PPG in conference play and are even when it comes to points for and points against as a favorite. I’ll take the free bucket with Bucknell here.
