The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers and Little Rock Trojans meet Thursday in college basketball action at the Jack Stephens Center.

The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers need a win here to get back to a .500 record. The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers are averaging 74.2 points on 45.1 percent shooting and allowing 72 points on 41.4 percent shooting. Zac Cuthbertson is averaging 19.2 points and 2.9 assists while Amidou Bamba is averaging 7.9 points and 5.6 rebounds. David Kralj is dishing 1.1 assists and Tyrell Gumbs-Frater is grabbing 1.6 rebounds. The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers are shooting 39.7 percent from beyond the arc and 68.9 percent from the free throw line. The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers are allowing 31.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.2 rebounds per game. The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers have lost six of their last seven road games.

The Little Rock Trojans could use a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Little Rock Trojans are averaging 76.4 points on 49.4 percent shooting and allowing 78.4 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Rayjon Tucker is averaging 19.7 points and 6.6 rebounds while Markquis Nowell is averaging 12.6 points and 4.6 assists. Nikola Maric is the third double-digit scorer and Deondre Burns is grabbing 2.8 rebounds. The Little Rock Trojans are shooting 37.7 percent from beyond the arc and 64.1 percent from the free throw line. The Little Rock Trojans are allowing 35.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.9 rebounds per game. The Little Rock Trojans have won six of their last nine home games.

The Chanticleers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Sun Belt. The Trojans are 30-12 ATS in their last 42 Thursday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Sun Belt. The Chanticleers are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The over is 7-2 in Trojans last 9 overall. The over is 6-0 in Chanticleers last 6 road games. The over is 5-2 in Trojans last 7 vs. Sun Belt.

The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers don't win many games on the road, but they are an impressive 7-3 ATS in non-home games this season. The problem with this contest is that you're only getting two points, so if you back Coastal Carolina, you're probably banking on them winning the game. The Little Rock Trojans have played their best ball of the season by far at home where they're shooting 52.2 percent from the field and outscoring teams by an average of 10.4 points. Little Rock has a clear edge offensively in this contest, so in a near toss-up game, I'll back the Trojans. The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers have had a lot of bad luck on the road this season. 

Pick:
Arkansas-Little Rock -3
