The North Alabama Lions currently sit with a 10-10 record overall and coming into this game they have lost six games in a row. In five of the last six games, North Alabama has also failed to come away with a cover of the spread. North Alabama is averaging 66.9 points per game while their defense is giving up 72.3 points per game. Mervin JOnes has been the best player for North Alabama averaging 13.9 points while shooting 46 percent from the field.

Daris McGhee has been the best player for Liberty averaging 13.7 points while shooting 43.7 percent from the field and 37.3 percent from behind the three point line.
The under is 7-1 in Liberty’s last eight games overall. The under is 7-1 in Liberty’s last games against the Atlantic Sun. The over is 8-3 in Liberty’s last 11 home games.
Liberty is the better team and I think their defense is going to lock down in this game. Look for a slower paced game and for the lack of scoring by North Alabama to keep this game under the total. In terms of the side it's a lean to Liberty cover the spread, but the side isn't something that should bet heavily.
