The Belmont Bruins and the Drake Bulldogs will go at it in a ESPN events tournament matchup.

In Belmont's last game, they were dismantled by the LSU Tigers. Will Richard had 16 points off the bench to lead the Belmont Bruins in scoring as they picked up their 2nd loss on the young season.  

The Belmont Bruins are averaging 81.3 points per game on 47.1% shooting from the field. They are allowing opponents to score 77 points per game. The Bruins are 25th in free throw percentage at 78.8% shooting from the free throw line.

The Bruins are led in scoring by Nick Muszynski who is averaging 15 points. Behind him is Ben Shepherd who puts up just under 15 a night. Will Richard contributes 12.2 a game for the Belmont Bruins. 

Drake squeezed passed the Richmond spiders in their last game. Tremell Murphy’s 18 points led 4 players in double digit scoring for the Bulldogs. The final score was 73-70. 

The Drake Bulldogs are averaging 86.3 points per game which ranks in the top 30 in Division I basketball. The Bulldogs are shooting 49.7% from the field. They are giving up just about 60 points per game. Drake ranks 4th in three point percentage as they have been shooting the lights out. As a team, they are shooting 45.3% from behind the arc. 

The Bulldogs are led in scoring by Tremell Murphy who is averaging 15 points per game. Drake is also getting 12 points and 23.7 assists from Roman Penn. Tucker DeVries contributes 10 for the Bulldogs of Drake. 

The Drake Bulldogs are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall and are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 neutral site games. The Bruins are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 neutral site games and are 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall.

Both of these teams struggle against the spread. This line is extremely tight because of it. Drake is the better team offensively and I expect their good shooting to continue against a Belmont team that struggles defensively. I will lay the points with Drake in this one.
