The Quinnipiac Bobcats and the Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers meet in college basketball action from the Knott Arena on Sunday afternoon.

The Quinnipiac Bobcats will try to build on their four-game win streak after a 58-51 win over Saint Peter’s last time out. Dezi Jones leads the Bobcats in scoring with 11.2 PPG along with 3.9 RPG and 3.5 APG while Matt Balanc has 10.7 PPG with 4.1 RPG and Ike Nweke has 10.4 PPG with 6.1 RPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Quinnipiac so far this season. Paul Otieno has a team-high 7.6 RPG to lead the Bobcats in rebounding while Luis Kortright has a team-high 3.8 APG to lead the Bobcats in assists up to this point in the year. As a team, Quinnipiac is averaging 72.9 PPG on 43.7% shooting from the field, 35.1% from three and 65.5% from the foul line this season.

The Mount St. Mary’s Mountaineers will look to bounce back from a 62-57 loss to Manhattan last ime out. Jalen Benjamin leads the Mountaineers in scoring and assists with 14.2 PPG and 3.9 APG while Dakota Leffew has 13.2 PPG to finish off the pair of double-digit scorers for Mount St. Mary’s this season. Malik Jefferson has 9.7 PPG and a team-high 6.9 RPG to lead the Mountaineers in rebounding while George Tinsley also has 5.9 RPG as well for the Mountaineers this season. As a team, Mount St. Mary’s is averaging 63.2 PPG on 41.5% shooting from the field, 34.6% from behind the arc and 73.2% from the foul line this season.

Quinnipiac is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games against a team with a losing home record while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 games following an ATS loss. Mount St. Mary’s is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games against a team with a winning road record while the under is 5-0 in their last 5 games overall.

I get the case to be made for a home underdog in spots, but I just don’t trust Mount St. Mary’s to be able to do enough offensively to get themselves a win or at least keep this game close. The Bobcats are the hotter team right now and they’ve been playing a lot better lately, home or away, and I think they get themselves a wni and cover here. Give me Quinnipiac.
