The Belmont Bruins and Vanderbilt Commodores face off on Tuesday in a college basketball showdown in the NIT at Vanderbilt University Memorial Gym.
Belmont comes into this game with a 25-7 record overall and they have gone 15-15-1 against the spread. Belmont has found a lot of success this season, but they have lost two of their last three games. In the last game against Morehead State the defense was strong, but the offense only managed 51 points, and that led to the defeat. Ben Sheppard has been the top player for Belmont this season averaging 16.4 points while shooting 50.3 percent from the field and 37.8 percent from behind the three point line. As a team, Belmont is averaging 78.5 points while their defense is giving up 68.2 points per game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Vanderbilt Commodores who sit with a 17-16 record and they have gone 21-12 against the spread. Vanderbilt has played a tough schedule this year, but they have had some big wins including two games ago against Alabama. The offense was elite in that game scoring 82 points, and that was enough to win by six points. Vanderbilt is averaging 70.4 points while their defense is giving up 67.5 points per game. Scotty Pippen Jr has been the top player for Vanderbilt this year, averaging 20.2 points while shooting 42.2 percent from the field. In this game, if Vanderbilt wants to get the job done they are going to need the defense to be good slowing down the Belmont offense.
Belmont is 6-0 against the spread in their last six games following a straight up loss. Belmont is 1-8 against the spread in their last nine games overall. The under is 4-0 in Belmont’s last four games as a road underdog. The under is 4-0 in Belmont’s last four games as an underdog.
Vanderbilt has proven to be a strong team, and Belmont is also a very good offensive team. I expect the pace of this game to be quick and there won’t be a whole lot of defense played by either team. The pace of this game is going to be quick, and the over is going to cash.
