The Central Arkansas Bears and Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks face off on Wednesday at William R. John Coliseum.

Rylan Bergersen has been the best player for Central Arkansas and on the season he is averaging 17.1 points per game while shooting almost 50 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks who come into this game with a 5-2 record overall and they have won two games in a row. For the Lumberjacks they haven’t been an elite offensive team so the defense needs to be good. Stephen F Austin is averaging 67.8 points per game while their defense is giving up 73 points per game. Cameron Johnson has been the best player for Stephen F Austin and on the season he is averaging 17.9 points while shooting 60.3 percent from the field.
Stephen F Austin is 7.1 against the spread in their last eight games against Southland. Stephen F. Austin is 7-3 against the spread in their last ten games overall. SFA is 4-9-1 against the spread in their last 14 games played on Wednesday.
These are two teams who aren’t great with their defense, but the offenses also aren’t elite and that is going to lead to a lower scoring game. This is way too many points for these two squads and the under is going to cash with ease.
