The Austin Peay Governors and Morehead State Eagles meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Ellis T. Johnson Arena.

The Austin Peay Governors look for a victory after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Austin Peay Governors are averaging 82.3 points on 48.6 percent shooting and allowing 71.8 points on 43.7 percent shooting. Terry Taylor is averaging 19 points and 8.3 rebounds while Chris Porter-Bunton is averaging 12.4 points and two assists. Steve Harris is the third double-digit scorer and Zach Glotta is grabbing 1.6 rebounds. The Austin Peay Governors are shooting 38 percent from beyond the arc and 70 percent from the free throw line. The Austin Peay Governors are allowing 31.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 36.2 rebounds per game. The Austin Peay Governors have won five of their last six road games.

The Morehead State Eagles could use a win after losing four of their last six games. The Morehead State Eagles are averaging 74.8 points on 43.1 percent shooting and allowing 78.4 points on 47.3 percent shooting. Jordan Walker is averaging 16.2 points and 3.3 rebounds while Lamontray Harris is averaging 13.8 points and 1.6 assists. A.J. Hicks is the third double-digit scorer and Malek Green is grabbing 5.1 rebounds. The Morehead State Eagles are shooting 34.9 percent from beyond the arc and 70.5 percent from the free throw line. The Morehead State Eagles are allowing 36.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 35.4 rebounds per game. The Morehead State Eagles have won six of their last nine home games.

The Governors are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Saturday games and 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Eagles are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. Ohio Valley and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games overall. The Governors are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Morehead St and the favorite is 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The over is 5-1 in Eagles last 6 overall. The under is 4-1 in Governors last 5 overall.

The Austin Peay Governors already beat Morehead State this season by 14 points, and they've been a very profitable team overall this year that you probably don't want to step in front of right now. The Morehead State Eagles have had issues at times defensively, especially at home where they're allowing more than 78 points on 46 percent shooting. When Austin Peay gets going, this can be a very tough squad to stop and it enters this game winning its last five games by an average of 11 points. I'll eat the reasonable number. 

Pick:
Austin Peay -4.5
