The Denver Pioneers and the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles meet in college basketball action from Mabee Center on Saturday. 

Denver enters this one at 5-18 so far. Since their last win versus Omaha, the Pioneers have lost to North Dakota, ND State and South Dakota in succession over their last three.

In the loss to the Coyotes, Denver’s Ade Murkey put up 28 points with six rebounds and two assists. Jase Townsend added 16 points and eight rebounds there, and Roscoe Eastmond had 15 points, five rebounds and four assists. 

Over on the Oral Roberts’ side, they’re coming in at 11-10 so far. Following four wins over ND State, North Dakota, Western IL and Fort Wayne, the Eagles have lost their last two to South Dakota and SD State. 

In the loss to the Jackrabbits, Oral Roberts’ lead scorer was Emmanuel Nzekwesi with 19 points and 14 rebounds. Deondre Burns added 14 points with three rebounds there, and Max Abmas had 10 points. 

The Eagles are 5-2 ATS in their last seven Saturday games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven after an ATS loss. Oral Roberts is 8-1 ATS in their last nine home games and the over is 7-3 in the last 10 overall. 

Meanwhile, the Pioneers are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 Saturday games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games. Denver is 6-2 ATS in their last eight after an ATS win and 4-0 ATS in their last four overall. 

Oral Roberts had a string of five straight games scoring at least 79 points in each, but they were only able to muster 61 in a 15-point loss to SD State their last time out. Overall, the Golden Eagles have done a pretty good job scoring this year, but they’re prone to bouts of defensive ineptitude as well. 

Denver suffers from a lot of the same issues, so this should be a pretty interesting (and high-scoring) matchup. Still, I like the Pioneers to hang on and power out a cover here.
