The St. Bonaventure Bonnies and the Xavier Musketeers face off on Tuesday in the NIT college basketball showdown at Madison Square Garden.
The St. Bonaventure Bonnies come into this game with a 23-9 record overall and they have gone 14-17-1 against the spread. The Bonnies have beaten Oklahoma and Virginia in the NIT by a total of three points. In the last game against Virginia they were outscored by three in the second half, but they still held on for the one point victory. St. Bonaventure is averaging 69.8 points while their defense is giving up 65.9 points per game. Jalen Adaway has been the top player for St. Bonaventure averaging 15.7 points while shooting 47.8 percent from the field and 39 percent from behind the three point line. There are five different players that are averaging at least 11.3 points per game.
On the other side of this matchup is the Xavier Musketeers who sit with a 21-13 record overall and they have gone 15-19 against the spread. Xavier has beat Cleveland State, Florida, and Vanderbilt so far in the NIT. In the last game against Vanderiblt they scored 46 points in the second half, and won by two points. Jack Nunge has been the top player for Xavier averaging 13.3 points while shooting 54 percent from the field and 36.6 percent from behind the three point line. There are five different players that are averaging at least 10 points per game. Xavier is averaging 73.9 points while their defense is giving up 68.9 points per game.
St. Bonaventure is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games played on Tuesday. The over is 6-1 in Xavier’s last seven neutral site games. The under is 4-1 in Xavier’s last five games played on Tuesday.
I expect St. Bonaventure is going to really slow down the pace in this game. The Bonnies defense has been strong most of the season and Xavier's offense has been inconsistent at best. I don't see Xavier getting over 60 points and that is going to be the difference in this game. Back St. Bonaventure to cover the spread.
