The Omaha Mavericks and Denver Pioneers face off on Friday in a college basketball showdown at Hamilton Gymnasium.
The Nebraska Omaha Mavericks come into this game with a 3-19 record overall and over the last ten games they only have one win. The one win during that stretch was against North Dakota two games ago, a game they won by ten minutes. Omaha on the season is averaging 66 points per game while their defense is giving up 77.9 points per game the Mavericks are shooting 41.6 percent from the field and 32.8 percent from behind the three point line. The big question for Nebraska Omaha in this game is if they will have their best player Marlon Ruffin. Ruffin is averaging 13.1 points per game but he is dealing with a head injury and it’s unclear if he can go in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Denver Pioneers who sit with a 2-17 record overall and they have lost four games in a row. In the last game against Kansas City, the defense really struggled giving up 80 points and that led to a defeat. Denver on the season is averaging 68.4 points per game while their defense is giving up 79.8 points per game. Denver is shooting 43.9 percent from the field and 34.3 percent from behind the three point line. Jase Townsend has been the best player for Denver averaging 19.1 points while shooting43.4 percent from the field.
Nebraska Omaha is 7-19 against the spread in their last 26 games against the Summit. The over is 9-1 in the last ten meetings played between the two teams. Nebraska Omaha is 6-2 against the spread in the last eight meetings against Denver.
This has been a series dominated by Nebraska Omaha and they are going to find success in this game. Back The Mavericks against the spread.
