The Kennesaw State Owls and the Eastern Kentucky Colonels meet in college basketball action from the McBrayer Arena on Thursday night.

The Kennesaw State Owls will look to bounce back from a 65-50 loss to Liberty last time out. Chris Youngblood leads the Owls in scoring and rebounding with 13.1 PPG along with 5.6 RPG while Terrell Burden has 12.4 PPG with Burden logging a team-high 4.4 APG as well this season. Spencer Rodgers has 10 PPG with 4.2 RPG to make up the group of double-digit scorers for Kennesaw State so far this season. As a team, Kennesaw State is averaging 74.2 PPG on 46.1% shooting from the field, 35.1% from three and 67.6% from the foul line while allowing 68.8 PPG on 43.9% shooting from the field and 36% from three this season.

The Eastern Kentucky Colonels will try to rebound from a 113-95 loss at the hands of Stetson last time out. Devontae Blanton leads the Colonels in scoring, rebounding and assists with 11.1 PPG, 6.3 RPG and 3.2 APG while Jannson Williams has 10.9 PPG with 5.1 RPG. Jomaru Brown, Braxton Beverly and Cooper Robb each have 10+ PPG to make up the group of double-digit scorers for EKU so far this season with Beverly logging 3.7 APG. Michael Moreno also has 9.9 PPG with 5.2 RPG this season. As a team, Eastern Kentucky is averaging 81 PPG on 42.7% shooting from the field, 35.4% from three and 69.2% from the foul line while allowing 73.2 PPG on 45.4% shooting from the field and 32% from three this season.

Kennesaw State is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a loss and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall while the under is 7-1 in their last 8 games overall. Eastern Kentucky is 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS loss while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 games following a loss.

I get the case to be made either way here, but I’m preferring to side with the under in this one. These teams have been playing low-scoring games often as of late, and Eastern Kentucky’s played in 14 unders in 18 lined games this season. I think this total’s way too high. Give me the under here.
