The Columbia Lions and Dartmouth Big Green meet Friday in college basketball action at the Edward Leede Arena.
The Columbia Lions need a win to snap a five-game losing streak. The Columbia Lions are averaging 66.9 points on 41.7 percent shooting and allowing 71.1 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Mike Smith is averaging 21 points and 4.7 assists while Jack Forrest is averaging 10 points and 3.3 rebounds. Ike Nweke is grabbing 5.2 rebounds and Jake Killingsworth is dishing 1.7 assists. The Columbia Lions are shooting 32.1 percent from beyond the arc and 70.9 percent from the free throw line. The Columbia Lions are allowing 34.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.5 rebounds per game. The Columbia Lions have lost all 12 road games this season.
The Dartmouth Big Green need a win to snap a nine-game losing streak. The Dartmouth Big Green are averaging 64.2 points on 43.4 percent shooting and allowing 64.9 points on 42.5 percent shooting. Chris Knight is averaging 13 points and 1.7 assists while Aaryn Rai is averaging 10.3 points and 6.3 rebounds. James Foye is dishing two assists and Taurus Samuels is grabbing 2.6 rebounds. The Dartmouth Big Green are shooting 32.2 percent from beyond the arc and 65.4 percent from the free throw line. The Dartmouth Big Green are allowing 33.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32 rebounds per game. The Dartmouth Big Green have lost three straight home games.
The home team is 6-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
Both of these teams look like complete garbage at the moment, and they're a combined 14-25-2 ATS on the season, so they don't provide much value in the betting market either. The Dartmouth Big Green should have the edge at home, but they're losing their last five games by an average of 10.8 points while shooting 40.6 percent from the field, so I can't lay chalk with them. The Dartmouth Big Green are also 1-4 ATS at home. It's the Lions and the points or pass for me.
