Matchup History

Lehigh’s 72-64 win over Bucknell back on January 5th, 2023, made it three straight wins for Lehigh in this head-to-head matchup.


Bucknell is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games against a team with a winning home record while the over is 3-0-1 in their last 4 road games. Lehigh is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400 and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games following an ATS win while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 home games against a team with a losing road record.


I’m leaning towards Lehigh here but probably not rushing to the window to bet this thing. Both of these teams are struggling right now, but it’s Lehigh that’s owned the bulk of the recent success between the two and I don’t see enough from Bucknell here to think that’s suddenly going to change in this game. The line isn’t too crazy so give me Lehigh here.
