The Charlotte 49ers and Florida Atlantic Owls meet Saturday in college basketball action at the FAU Arena.

The Charlotte 49ers could use a win here that would snap a six-game losing streak. The Charlotte 49ers are averaging 59.9 points on 40.9 percent shooting and allowing 69.4 points on 43.6 percent shooting. Jon Davis is averaging 21.4 points and 4.7 rebounds while Malik Martin is averaging 9.5 points and 1.6 assists. Cooper Robb is dishing 1.2 assists and Milos Supica is grabbing 4.8 rebounds. The Charlotte 49ers are shooting 29.5 percent from beyond the arc and 76.9 percent from the free throw line. The Charlotte 49ers are allowing 34.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 30.7 rebounds per game. The Charlotte 49ers have lost all four road games this season.

The Florida Atlantic Owls look for another win after winning nine of their last 13 games. The Florida Atlantic Owls are averaging 73 points on 41.6 percent shooting and allowing 68.6 points on 41.4 percent shooting. Jailyn Ingram is averaging 18.9 points and 8.2 rebounds while Anthony Adger is averaging 16.2 points and 1.6 assists. Xavian Stapleton is the third double-digit scorer and Jaylen Sebree is grabbing 4.2 rebounds. The Florida Atlantic Owls are shooting 31.1 percent from beyond the arc and 71.7 percent from the free throw line. The Florida Atlantic Owls are allowing 29.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 40.8 rebounds per game. The Florida Atlantic Owls have won all six home games this season.

The 49ers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Saturday games, 16-36 ATS in their last 52 road games and 17-35 ATS in their last 52 games overall. The Owls are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win. The home team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The under is 7-1 in Owls last 8 overall. The over is 5-1 in 49ers last 6 Saturday games.

The Charlotte 49ers aren't winning games and are being outscored by almost 14 points on the road this season due to an offense that just can't get going. The Florida Atlantic Owls have been one of the bigger surprises in all of college basketball this season, a team that could make a run toward a CUSA title, and they're shooting 48 percent from the field at home, winning all six games and outscoring teams by an average of 9.3 points. Charlotte just isn't a team I'm looking to get behind due to a brutal offense. I'll lay the chalk with FAU, a consistent club that plays even better at home.

FAU Owls -9
