The Fort Wayne Mastodons (13-17, CONF 6-9) and Oral Roberts Golden Eagles (15-13, CONF 8-7) face off in a Summit League showdown at the Mabee Center. Oral Roberts knocked off Fort Wayne 92-68 earlier this season.
The Mastodons are coming off a win, but for the most part they have had a down season and they have failed to cover the spread in each of the last three games. Away from home Fort Wayne has only three wins of the road and the biggest issue has been the defense giving up 75.9 points per game,
Fort Wayne is led by guard Jarred Godfrey who is averaging 15.6 points while shooting 44.6 percent from the field.
Oral Roberts is playing some good basketball coming into this game winning three of the last four games. The one loss during the last four games for Oral Roberts was on the road in overtime against Denver. Over the last five games Oral Roberts has pushed the pace averaging 92 points per game, but their defense has really struggled giving up 82.2 points.
In Oral Roberts last game they dropped 113 points and had five guys score at least 12 points. Kevin Obanor was the leading scorer putting up 24 points and eight rebounds in 24 minutes.
Oral Roberts is best when they are pushing the pace and in this game if they can run up the score they should be in good shape to come away with a victory.
The under is 9-2 in Fort Wayne’s last 11 Saturday games. The under is 7-1 in Fort Wayne’s last eight games against the Summit League. Oral Roberts is 10-3 against the spread in their last 13 home games. Oral Roberts is 2-6-1 against the spread in their last nine games overall. Fort Wayne is 15-3 against the spread in their last 18 meetings against Oral Roberts.
Fort Wayne’s offense is really struggling, and against a strong Oral Roberts offense that is going to be trouble. Look for Oral Robets to use a balanced attack to run up the score and that will lead to an easy victory.
