The Quinnipiac Bobcats will visit the Niagara Purple Eagles in this college basketball matchup scheduled for Sunday afternoon. Both teams have played each other in their last games.
The Quinnipiac Bobcats are coming off of a 9 point win over Niagara in their last time out. Dezi Jones had a season-high 20 points with eight assists. Jacob Rigoni and Kevin Marfo each had 14 points for Quinnipiac as they earned their fourth straight win.
The Quinnipiac Bobcats are led in scoring by Matt Balanc who averages 16.2 points and 2.9 rebounds for this team. Kevin Marfo averages 10.1 points and 11 rebounds a night. Dezi Jones is the third leading scorer for the Bobcats as he averages 9.6points a game for this team.
The Bobcats are averaging 75 points per game on 45.2% shooting from the field. They are allowing opponents to score 68.2 points per game. They are shooting 75.3% from the free throw line.
The Niagara Purple Eagles are coming off of a 9 point loss to Quinnipiac in their last time out. Jordan Cintron had 14 points for the Purple Eagles while Justin Roberts added 13 points and Marcus Hammond had 12 points in the loss.
The Niagara Purple Eagles are led in scoring by Marcus Hammond who averages 17.1 points and 4.1 rebounds for this team. Jordan Cintron averages 9.8 points and 5 rebounds a game for this team. Greg Kuakumensah is the third leading scorer for the Purple Eagles as he averages 8.5 points a game for this team.

Although this is a chance for the Purple Eagles to get revenge after their loss, I just think Quinnipiac is too much for this team. The Bobcats are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games. The Purple Eagles are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. Even if the Purple Eagles do win this one, this could easily be a one possession game so I’ll take the points with the better team.
