The Air Force Falcons also look to get back to a .500 record. The Air Force Falcons have lost their only home game this season. The Air Force Falcons are averaging 64.7 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 64.7 points on 39.4 percent shooting.

The Air Force Falcons are allowing 30.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 31 rebounds per game.
I'm not running to the window to back the Lindenwood Lions, but I'm certainly not laying massive chalk with Air Force. The Air Force Falcons are playing with a slow pace they don't have the offensive horses to blow teams out, and they've lost to Portland State and Delaware. The Portland State loss is obviously the worst, given they were at home and 7 point favorites. I'm just not excited about this one if we're being honest. Give me Lindenwood and the boatload of points if forced to pick.
