The Massachusetts Minutemen are averaging 70.2 points on 42.7 percent shooting and allowing 66.5 points on 41.5 percent shooting. Matt Cross is averaging 11.7 points and 6.2 rebounds, while Noah Fernandes is averaging 11.4 points and 2.6 rebounds.

The Big Green are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 road games and 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The Minutemen are 33-16-2 ATS in their last 51 home games and 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Big Green last 4 overall. The under is 7-3 in Minutemen last 10 overall.

The UMass Minutemen are the better team, obviously, but they have offensive issues in terms of pulling away, so I don’t trust them with big chalk. UMass isn’t winning games comfortably, and only wins in the favorite role by an average of 6.3 points. The Dartmouth Big Green are good enough defensively to hang around. It feels like we’re getting an extra free bucket or two. Give me the Big Green.
