The George Mason Patriots are allowing 30.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34 rebounds per game. The George Mason Patriots have lost two of their last three road games.
The George Washington Colonials need a win to snap a four-game losing streak. The George Washington Colonials are averaging 66.2 points on 41.5 percent shooting and allowing 68.6 points on 44.2 percent shooting. Armel Potter is averaging 13.8 points and 2.7 rebounds while Jamison Battle is averaging 12.5 points and 5.8 rebounds.

The Patriots are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games following a ATS win and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games as a road favorite. The Colonials are 12-5-1 ATS in their last 18 Wednesday games. The over is 9-2 in Patriots last 11 road games. The under is 15-6-1 in Colonials last 22 overall.
The George Washington Colonials are riding a four-game losing streak, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 5.4 points while shooting 41.3 percent from the field. The George Mason Patriots haven't had much success on the road and have run into hiccups as well, but they've been far more cosnsitent over the entire course of the season and have a defense that travels. I'll lay the bucket with the Patriots, but there's much better options on a stacked Wednesday CBB card.
