The Detroit Mercy Titans (7-23, 5-12 CONF) and the IUPUI Jaguars (7-23, 3-14 CONF) will meet on Saturday, February 29th for a Horizon League matchup at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum in Indianapolis, IN. The game will be played at 12:00 PM eastern time.
Detroit is coming off an 84-67 road loss to UIC in their last game. Detroit has lost four of their last five games overall, and they are seven games under .500 in Horizon League conference play. IUPUI is coming off a 71-68 home win over Oakland in their last game. That win snapped a seven-game losing streak for IUPUI, who like Detroit, have struggled badly this season. IUPUI is currently 11 games under .500 in conference play this season.
Detroit scores 69.5 points per game this season on 38.7 percent field goal shooting this season. Detroit’s leading scorer is G Antoine Davis, who scores 23.7 points per game. The leading rebounder for Detroit is F Chris Brandon, who earns 8.0 rebounds per game. Detroit allows 77.8 points per game to the opposition, therefore they have a -8.3 scoring differential so far this season. Detroit also earns 36.2 rebounds, 10.5 assists, 3.1 blocks, and 5.8 steals per game as a team.
IUPUI scores 70.3 points per game on 41.3 percent field goal shooting this season. IUPUI’s leading scorer is G Marcus Burk, who scores 21.2 points per game. The leading rebounder for IUPUI is F Elyjah Goss, who earns 11.7 rebounds per game. IUPUI allows 79.4 points per game to the opposition, thus they have a -9.1 scoring differential so far this season. IUPUI also earns 35.9 rebounds, 13.5 assists, 2.5 blocks, and 6.5 steals per game as a team.
Detroit is 12-17-1 against the spread this season and 2-7-1 against the spread in their last ten games. Detroit is also 5-9-1 against the spread on the road so far this season. IUPUI is 11-17 against the spread this season and 5-5 against the spread in their last ten games. IUPUI is also 3-7 against the spread at home so far this season.
This game is one of the more undesirable on the entire schedule in college basketball this season. When you have two teams that are bad straight up and against the spread, and they give up a ton of points, the over is the only side I can take. I will take the over 154 in this one, but preferably will not tune in to this stinker.
