The Mercer Bears host the Samford Bulldogs in a SoCon college basketball matchup.

The Samford Bulldogs are eyeing a third straight win after an 80-76 OT WIN versus Chattanooga on Saturday as an eight point home favorite.

Samford has won three of four to up their record to 16-11 and keep themselves in 5thplace in the conference with a few weeks to go.

The Bulldogs saw Josh Sharkey explode for 27 points and seven assists while Ruben Guerrero tossing in 19 points and grabbing ten rebounds.

Myron Gordon gave Samford 13 points and three yanks followed Brandon Austin and Stefan Lakic with a combined 13 points and 12 rebounds.

The Mercer Bears were denied back to back wins in an 88-69 defeat to East Tennessee State Saturday as an 11.5 point road dog.

The Mercer Bears have seen their chance at a top four finish disappear with losses in five of six that have the team staring at 7th.

Ethan Stair led the Bears offense with 18 points and four pulls with Ross Cummings netting 17 points with four boards.

Jaylen Stowe and Daniel Love gave Mercer nine points apiece and eight rebounds followed three players with four points each.

Samford Bulldogs are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 road games and Samford Bulldogs are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss.

Mercer Bears are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall and Mercer Bears are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Southern.

Samford Bulldogs are 0-7 ATS in the last 7 meetings and Samford Bulldogs are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Mercer.

Samford never beats Mercer but I’m still taking the points in what the numbers say should be close…

Pick:
Samford +3.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
