Lamar Looks to Build on Last Game

Lamar in the last game faced off against New Orleans and the offense was sure impressive. They scored 94 points and that was enough for the 22 point victory. Adam Hamilton in the last game put up 17 points. Terry Anderson also had 16 points and 10 rebounds. Lamar on the season is averaging 80.6 points while their defense is giving up 74.8 points per game. The offense is ranked 36th but the defense has been a major issue at times for this team. Terry Andreson is averaging 12.3 points while shooting 50 percent from the field.

Lamar vs Southeastern Louisiana Betting Prediction

Southeastern Louisiana has been good heading into this game, but I don’t think they are going to win this game in blowout fashion. On the season Lamar is averaging 80.6 points and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. The offense is going to be too much for Southeastern Louisiana and it will be Lamar that gets the job done. Back Lamar against the spread here.
