The Sacred Heart Pioneers host the Bryant Bulldogs in a Northeast conference matchup in Thursday college basketball action.
The Sacred Heart Pioneers are 14-11 this season and have lost their last two games. The Pioneers are 7-5 in the Northeast conference this season and 5-4 at home. Sacred Heart are averaging 73.8 points per game and they are shooting 43.8 percent from the floor this season and their opponents are averaging 69.6 points per game and shoot 41.4 percent. E.J. Anosike leads SHU averaging 15.5 points and 10.9 rebounds per game. Kareem Ozier is averaging 15 points, Kinnon LaRose is averaging 10.2 points and 5.9 rebounds, and Aaron Clarke and Cameron parker are each averaging 10.1 points. Both of Sacred Heart’s recent losses came at home as a favorite.
The Bryant Bulldogs are 12-12 this season and have won their last two games. The Bulldogs have struggled on the road going 4-8 thus far and they sit at 4-7 in Northeast conference play. Senior Guard Adam Grant leads the way for Bryant averaging 16.9 points per game. Benson Lin averages 9.3 points, Charles Pride is averaging 9 points and Michael Green III and Ikenna Ndugba are averaging 8 points each. Bryant has won their last two road games but they just haven’t found consistency this year.
Sacred Heart are 1-4-1 against the spread at home against a team with a losing road record and 1-5-1 against the spread in their last seven home games. Bryant are 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 games, 0-4 against the spread in their last four road games, and 10-4-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record.
Sacred Heart has been better against the number overall but at home they haven’t been getting it done and while I don’t love this game, I like laying points with a team that rarely covers even less.
