The Central Michigan Chippewas and Marquette Golden Eagles meet Thursday in college basketball action at the Al McGuire Center. The Central Michigan Chippewas are coming off a 7-win season. The Marquette Golden Eagles look for a 2-0 start. 

The Central Michigan Chippewas enter the second season under coach Tony Barbee. Kevin Miller returns after averaging 13.1 points and 3.4 rebounds, while Brian Taylor averaged 8.2 points and 1 assist. Nicolas Pavrette played in 217 minutes last season, and Miroslav Stafl averaged 1.6 rebounds. The Central Michigan Chippewas lost 8 players from last season, including their top guy in Kevin Miller. The good news is Central Michigan snagged a 4-star recruit in Reggie Bass who had offers from Illinois, Florida, and Kansas State. There’s sure to be growing pains for Central Michigan with so much roster turnover. 

The Marquette Golden Eagles are averaging 79 points on 45.8 percent shooting and allowing 69 points on 41.3 percent shooting. Oso Ighodaro is averaging 19 points and 7 rebounds, while Olivier-Maxence Prosper is averaging 13 points and 5 rebounds. Stevie Mitchell is the third double-digit scorer and Kam Jones is grabbing 6 rebounds. The Marquette Golden Eagles are shooting 26.3 percent from beyond the arc and 80 percent from the free throw line. The Marquette Golden Eagles are allowing 20 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38 rebounds per game.

The Chippewas are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Golden Eagles are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 Thursday games and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Chippewas last 8 overall. The under is 5-2 in Golden Eagles last 7 home games.

The Central Michigan Chippewas have a ton of roster turnover, and this isn’t the easiest opening game on the road to figure things out. The Marquette Golden Eagles had the privilege of getting a game out of the way to knock off some rust, and they looked sharp offensively for the most part. Marquette is the more talented, more experienced side here. This is a tough spot for Central Michigan. I’ll lay the chalk with the home team.
