The Rice Owls and Charlotte 49ers face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown in the Conference USA Tournament at the Ford Center. When these two teams faced off on January 22nd it was Charlotte that won 67-64.
Charlotte was led by Austin Butler and Jackson Treadgill who put up 14 points. Rice was led by Mylyjael Potaet who finished with 15 points.
Rice comes into this game with a 15-15 record overall and they have gone 12-15-1 against the spread. In the last game against UTSA, Rice’s defense gave up 82 points, and that led to the 11 point defeat. Two games ago against UTEP, Rice was defeated 70-67. Rice is averaging 75.3 points while their defense is giving up 74.2 points per game. Guard Carl Pierre has been the top player for Rice averaging 15.4 points while shooting 46.8 percent from the field and 42.1 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Charlotte 49ers who sit with a 17-13 record overall and they have gone 14-16 against the spread. Charlotte has won two games in a row, and in the last game against Southern Miss it was by three points. Charlotte is averaging 63.5 points while their defense is giving up 66.7 points per game. Jahmir Young has been the top player for Charlotte averaging 19.8 points while shooting 47.7 percent from and 35.3 percent from behind the three point line.
The under is 5-0 in Rice’s last five games against a team with a winning straight up record. The over is 5-1 in the Owls last six games overall. The over is 5-0 in the Owls last five games following a straight up loss.
I really trust either of these teams, but if Charlotte wants a chance they know they are going to need to keep this game slower paced. With the slower pace, the 49ers are going to struggle to score, and Rice isn’t going to run up the score either. Look for both teams to finish under 65 points, and the under is going to cash.
