The Bucknell Bisons and the Lehigh Mountain Hawks meet in college basketball action from the Stabler Arena on Monday night.

The Bucknell Bisons will look to bounce back after a 78-72 loss at the hands of Holy Cross last time out. Andrew Funk leads the Bison in scoring with 17.8 PPG with 3.8 RPG as well while Xander Rice has 12.3 PPG with a team-high 3.8 APG and Andre Screen has 11 PPG with 6.6 RPG as well to lead Bucknell on the glass and to make up the group of double-digit scorers for Bucknell up to this point in the year.

The Lehigh Mountain Hawks will try to snap a three-game losing streak after a 73-69 loss to Lafayette last time out. Evan Taylor leads the Mountain Hawks in scoring and rebounding with 13.8 PPG along with 5.8 RPG while Jeameril Watson has 11 PPG with 5 RPG to make up the duo of double-digit scorers for Lehigh so far this season. Nic Lynch has 9.1 PPG as well this season.

Bucknell is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games while the over is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall. Lehigh is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record.

I get why Lehigh would be favored at home here, but the thing is that Lehigh’s had some issues as of late just getting wins let alone covering the spread. Bucknell’s had their own issues, but they’ve been playing closer games as of late than Lehigh has been playing period, so give me Bucknell and the points here.
