The Kennesaw State Owls and Eastern Kentucky Colonels meet Monday in the college basketball Paradise Jam at the Sports and Fitness Center.

The Kennesaw State Owls could use a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Kennesaw State Owls are averaging 50 points on 35 percent shooting and allowing 62.5 points on 42.8 percent shooting. Tyler Hooker is averaging 15.6 points and two assists while Kosta Jankovic is averaging 10 points and 4.8 rebounds. Ugo Obineke is grabbing 2.7 rebounds and Bobby Parker is dishing 1.4 assists. The Kennesaw State Owls are shooting 35.3 percent from beyond the arc and 54.9 percent from the free throw line. The Kennesaw State Owls are allowing 29.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.5 rebounds per game. The Kennesaw State Owls have lost four straight non-home games.

The Eastern Kentucky Colonels need a victory here in order to get back to a .500 record. The Eastern Kentucky Colonels are averaging 77.8 points on 37.9 percent shooting and allowing 92 points on 49.6 percent shooting. Nick Mayo is averaging 24.4 points and 2.2 assists while Lachlan Anderson is averaging 10.2 points and 6.6 rebounds. Kelvin Robinson is dishing four assists and Dujuanta Weaver is grabbing 3.2 rebounds. The Eastern Kentucky Colonels are shooting 26.4 percent from beyond the arc and 68.4 percent from the free throw line. The Eastern Kentucky Colonels are allowing 34.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.8 rebounds per game. The Eastern Kentucky Colonels have lost two of their last three non-home games.

The Fighting Owls are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 neutral site games. The Colonels are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Monday games and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 non-conference games. The over is 4-0 in Colonels last 4 overall and the under is 4-0 in Fighting Owls last 4 overall.

The Kennesaw State Owls have been really outmatched during their four-game losing streak and the lack of offensive production continues to be an issue. The Eastern Kentucky Colonels are a better team than what their record indciates, and they'll have the best player on the court in this game. I'll take Eastern Kentucky and the reasonable chalk.

Pick:
Eastern Kentucky Colonels -4
