Belmont comes into this game with a 25-6 record overall and they have won 11 of their last 12 games. The only loss for Belmont came two games ago against Murray State, and the offense only scored 43 points in that game. Belmont did bounce back in a big way in the last game scoring 87 points against Tennessee State. Belmont is a team that likes to push the pace, and if the offense is good in this game, they should be in good shape. Ben Sheppard has been the top player for Belmont averaging 16.3 points while shooting 50.3 percent from the field. Belmont is averaging 79.4 points while their defense is giving up 68.7 points per game. 

The first time these two teams played there was only 95 points scored, and in this game, points are going to be hard to come by again. Morehead State’s defense has a lot of confidence heading into this game, and they aren’t going to want to make this game a shootout. Look for both teams to struggle to get to 60 points, and the under is going to cash.
