The Rider Broncs and Quinnipiac Bobcats face off on Sunday in a college basketball showdown at TD Bank Sports Center.
The Rider Broncs come into this game with a 4-11 record overall and they have lost four of their last five games. In the last game against Marist the offense scored only 67 points and that led to a nine point victory. Rider comes into this game averaging 67.8 points per game while their defense is giving up 73.7 points per game. Rider is shooting 43 percent from the field and 33.6 percent from behind the three point line. In this game for Rider it’s going to be about the defense being strong early and slowing down the Bobcats offense. Rider is led by Dwight Murray Jr. who averages 15.4 points and shoots 44.4 percent from the field and 41.5 percent from deep.
On the other side of this matchup is the Quinnipiac Bobcats who sit with a 6-9 record overall and they have also been struggling as of late losing three of their last four games. The one win during that stretch was in their last game against Iona, a game they were able to win 74-70. Quinnipiac is averaging 67/7 points per game while their defense is giving up 69.8 points per game. Quinnipiac is led by Jacob Rigoni who averages 12.1 points and shoots 38.2 percent from the field and 38.9 percent from deep.
Rider is 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 Sunday games.
These are two teams who don’t have great offenses and I expect that is going to lead to this game staying well under the total. Look for both teams to struggle to score and that is going to lead to this game staying well under the total.
