The Davidson Wildcats and St Bonaventure Bonnies meet Friday in college basketball action at the Reilly Center.

The Davidson Wildcats look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The Davidson Wildcats are averaging 70.6 points on 43.9 percent shooting and allowing 66.3 points on 41.1 percent shooting. Kellan Grady is averaging 17.4 points and 4.3 rebounds while Jon Axel Gudmundsson is averaging 16.2 points and 4.3 assists. Luka Brajkovic is the third double-digit scorer and Luke Frampton is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The Davidson Wildcats are shooting 34.2 percent from beyond the arc and 75.2 percent from the free throw line. The Davidson Wildcats are allowing 33.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.7 rebounds per game. The Davidson Wildcats have split their last six road games.

The St Bonaventure Bonnies could use a win here after splitting their last eight games. The St Bonaventure Bonnies are averaging 67.7 points on 43.5 percent shooting and allowing 66.4 points on 42.4 percent shooting. Courtney Stockard is averaging 16.5 points and three assists while Kyle Lofton is averaging 14.3 points and 2.5 rebounds. Jaylen Adams is the third double-digit scorer and LaDarien Griffin is grabbing 5.6 rebounds. The St Bonaventure Bonnies are shooting 32.7 percent from beyond the arc and 74.9 percent from the free throw line. The St Bonaventure Bonnies are allowing 32.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31.2 rebounds per game. The St Bonaventure Bonnies have won six of their last eight home games.

The Wildcats are 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 vs. Atlantic 10. The Bonnies are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Wildcats are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the favorite is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The under is 13-5-1 in Bonnies last 19 overall. The under is 7-1-1 in Wildcats last 9 overall. The under is 5-0 in Wildcats last 5 road games.

The St Bonaventure Bonnies have played their best ball by far at home where they're shooting 46.8 percent from the field and winning by an average of 14.9 points. The Bonnies also need this game if they're going to make a statement to the rest of the conference and kind of snap out of this inconsistent funk they've been in. However, the Davidson Wildcats remain the team to beat in the A10 until further notice and are playing consistent ball, which includes allowing just 39.4 percent shooting in their last five games. Any time I can get Davidson and a small line, I'm taking it. I'll lay the bucket with the better basketball team.

Pick:
Davidson -2
