Chattanooga faces Mercer on Wednesday, February 24th at Hawkins Arena for an NCAA basketball SoCon matchup. 

Chattanooga is coming off a 60-55 loss to UNC Greensboro in its last game on the road on February 20th. Chattanooga's six-game winning streak was snapped with the loss to the conference's top team currently, but Chattanooga was able to cover the spread as the dog. Chattanooga is 18-6 overall and 9-6 in conference play as well. Chattanooga is also a whopping 14-7 against the spread this season. Chattanooga's leading scorer so far this season has been G Malachi Smith, who has scored 16.5 points per game for the Mocs. Chattanooga as a team has scored 73.3 points per game and has shot the ball at a 44.2% clip from the field. Chattanooga has also allowed 69.0 points per game to its opponents as well. 

Mercer is coming off an 88-52 win over The Citadel in its last game on February 22nd at home. Mercer has won three of its last five games. Mercer is currently 14-9 overall but has an under .500 in SoCon play at 7-8. That puts Mercer in 7th place in the Southern Conference standings. Mercer is 8-12 against the spread this season, as the Bears have not been a great cover team. Mercer's leading scorer so far this season has been G Ross Cummings, who has scored 14.8 points per game for the Bears. Mercer as a team has scored 78.3 points per game and has shot the ball at a 48.5% clip from the field. Mercer has also allowed 72.7 points per game to its opponents as well.

Mercer opens as a 4-point favorite and the total is set at 144. As well as Chattanooga has been playing, I am not quite ready to take the Mocs on the road in this spot;. Mercer will be out for revenge after losing the first meeting against Chattanooga, and I like the Bears to win and cover at home here.
