The Belmont Bruins and Morehead State Eagles meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Ellis T. Johnson Arena.

The Belmont Bruins look for another victory to build on their six-game winning streak. The Belmont Bruins are averaging 85.7 points on 48.8 percent shooting and allowing 76.8 points on 42.8 percent shooting. Dylan Windler is averaging 19.4 points and 10.3 rebounds while Kevin McClain is averaging 16.8 points and four assists. Nick Muszynski is the third double-digit scorer and Grayson Murphy is grabbing 4.5 rebounds. The Belmont Bruins are shooting 35.5 percent from beyond the arc and 72.5 percent from the free throw line. The Belmont Bruins are allowing 34 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 37 rebounds per game. The Belmont Bruins have won four of their last six road games.

The Morehead State Eagles need a victory after splitting their last 10 games. The Morehead State Eagles are averaging 71.8 points on 41.4 percent shooting and allowing 78.7 points on 47.7 percent shooting. Jordan Walker is averaging 16.2 points and 3.3 rebounds while Lamontray Harris is averaging 13.5 points and 1.5 assists. A.J. Hicks is the third double-digit scorer and Malek Green is grabbing 5.2 rebounds. The Morehead State Eagles are shooting 34 percent from beyond the arc and 70.7 percent from the free throw line. The Morehead State Eagles are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31 rebounds per game. The Morehead State Eagles have won five of their last seven home games.

The Bruins are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. Ohio Valley and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Eagles are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Ohio Valley, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Bruins are 3-1-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Morehead St and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The over is 4-0 in Eagles last 4 overall. The over is 18-8 in Bruins last 26 vs. Ohio Valley.

The Belmont Bruins have treated the Morehead State Eagles like a punching bag over the years, which includes four straight double-digit wins, including a 17-point win last month. Belmont enters this game winning by an average of 15.2 points in its last five games and a solid 7-3 ATS on the road this season. The Morehead State Eagles are as inconsistent of a team in the country and are just 2-6 ATS at home this season. Belmont isn't a team I'm trying to step in front of right now, and Morehead State isn't the team you should be looking to get behind. Give me the Bruins in another double-digit victory.

Pick:
Belmont -10
