The IUPUI Jaguars and Wright State Raiders meet Sunday in college basketball action at the Nutter Center.

The IUPUI Jaguars look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last eight games. The IUPUI Jaguars are averaging 75 points on 43.7 percent shooting and allowing 74.2 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Camron Justice is averaging 20.4 points and 2.6 assists while Jaylen Minnett is averaging 11.4 points and 1.9 rebounds. Elyjah Goss is grabbing 6.7 rebounds and Evan Hall is dishing one assist. The IUPUI Jaguars are shooting 32.3 percent from beyond the arc and 69.3 percent from the free throw line. The IUPUI Jaguars are allowing 34.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.1 rebounds per game. The IUPUI Jaguars have lost their last four road games.

The Wright State Raiders could also use a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Wright State Raiders are averaging 72.7 points on 43.6 percent shooting and allowing 72.7 points on 48.5 percent shooting. Billy Wampler is averaging 14.5 points and 1.2 assists while Cole Gentry is averaging 13.9 points and 2.1 rebounds. Loudon Love is the third double-digit scorer and Mark Hughes is grabbing 4.6 rebounds. The Wright State Raiders are shooting 38.1 percent from beyond the arc and 72.6 percent from the free throw line. The Wright State Raiders are allowing 42.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 29.4 rebounds per game. The Wright State Raiders have won six of their last eight home games.

The Jaguars are 14-3 ATS in their last 17 Sunday games, 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Raiders are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 home games, 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Sunday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Horizon League. The over is 5-2 in Raiders last 7 home games. The over is 6-1 in Jaguars last 7 overall.

The Wright State Raiders aren't a team I'm trying to get behind much given just how much they've struggled and the fact they have an even point differential on the season. However, the IUPUI Jaguars have really had issues on the road this season where they're shooting just 41 percent from the field and being outscored by 7.2 points. Wright State is outscoring teams by 9.2 points at home and is 4-2 ATS. I'll take Wright State in a comfortable home victory.

Pick:
Wright State Raiders -8.5
