The Binghamton Bearcats and the UMBC Retrievers meet in college basketball action from the Chesapeake Employers Insurance Arena on Saturday afternoon as part of the America East conference tournament. Let’s dive into the odds, injuries, matchup history and make a prediction for this game.
UMBC is listed as a 7.5-point home favorite with the total for this game set at 143.5 points
Neither side has anyone listed on the injury report for this game, so barring any last-minute announcements, both sides will come into this game at full strength.
UMBC’s 70-67 OT win over Binghamton back on February 28th, 2023, made it four straight wins for the Retrievers in this head-to-head matchup.
The over is 5-1-1 in Binghamton’s last 7 games overall and 7-3-1 in their last 11 road games. UMBC is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 home games.
I’m leaning towards UMBC here. Not one I’m rushing to bet, but the Retrievers were far better at home this season and they were far more effective in the meetings between these two teams in the meeting at UMBC, a game the Retrievers won by 14 points. I don’t envision the Bearcats having a ton of success in this game, so give me the Retrievers laying the points if forced to pick.
