The Old Dominion Monarchs and the Charlotte 49ers meet in college basketball action from the Halton Arena on Wednesday night.

The Old Dominion Monarchs will look to snap a three-game losing streak after a 69-56 loss to North Texas last time out. C.J. Keyser has 14.2 PPG while Kalu Ezikpe has 11.3 PPG with a team-high 7 RPG to lead the Monarchs on the glass. Austin Trice has 11.3 PPG with 6.7 RPG and Jaylin Hunter has 10.4 PPG with a team-high 4.4 APG to lead the Monarchs in assists this season. As a team, Old Dominion is averaging 66.4 PPG on 43.5% shooting from the field, 29.8% from three and 68.6% from the foul line while allowing 67 PPG on 42.5% shooting from the field and 35.6% from three this season.

The Charlotte 49ers will be on the hunt to build on a 67-64 win over Rice last time out. Jahmir Young leads the 49ers in scoring and assists with 19 PPG and 4 APG as well as logging 5.6 RPG on the year while Austin Butler has 12.4 PPG with 6.5 RPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Charlotte up to this point in the season as the 49ers’ top rebounder. Clyde Trapp has 9.7 PPG with 5.9 RPG while Robert Braswell has 8.7 PPG this season. As a team, Charlotte is averaging 70 PPG on 46.6% shooting from the field, 36.1% from three and 77.3% from the foul line while allowing 71.6 PPG on 45.8% shooting from the field and 36.9% from three this season.

Old Dominion is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall. Charlotte is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 9-2 in their last 11 games following a win.

I get why the line would be shifting towards Old Dominion even on the road, but I don’t agree with it. Charlotte is playing the better basketball since the turn of the calendar and I just think that this is a spot where the game is tight throughout, but Charlotte pulls away at the foul line late. Given the reasonable line, I’ll lay the bucket with Charlotte here.
