The American Eagles and Army Black Knights face off on Wednesday in a college basketball showdown at Christi Arena. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free American vs Army prediction.

American Looks to Stay Above .500

American comes into this game with a 15-14 record overall and they are coming off a victory in the last game American faced off against Colgate in the last game and they were able to secure the 66-64 victory. American is averaging 69.1 points while their defense is giving up 68.1 points per game. The offense is ranked 297th while the defense is ranked 78th. Matt Rogers has been the top player for American averaging 16.1 points while shooting 50.1 percent from the field and 36.8 percent from behind the three point line. 

American Betting Trends

  • American University has lost each of its last four road games following a road win.
  • Twenty-six of American University's last 27 day games against non-AP-ranked opponents have produced a total of 121+ points.
  • American University has won the first half in four of its last five day games against Army.

Army Continues to Lose

Army in the last game faced off Bucknell in the last game and the offense was awful. The offense scored 41 points and they ended up losing by 13 points. Abe Johnson had a strong game putting up 12 points and seven rebounds. Army on the season is averaging 60.1 points while their defense is giving up 63.2 points per game. The defense is ranked 11th and the defense is going to need to step up here. Josh Scovens is having a strong season averaging 12.3 points while shooting 40.44 percent from the field and 32.3 percent from behind the three point line. 

Army Betting Trends

  • The home team has won nine of the last 11 games between American University and Army.
  • Each of the last seven games between American University and Army at Edward C. Christl Jr. Arena have produced a total of 128+ points.
  • Army has lost the first half in five of its last six day games against the Patriot League.

American vs Army Betting Prediction 

Army’s offense has been a major issue and they are going to really struggle again here. In the last game Army only scored 41 points.  Army knows to find success they are going to need to keep the pace slow, and I do expect their defense is going to step up. Both of these teams are going to struggle to get to 60 points, and I don’t think either team is going to reach that number. Back this game to stay under the total.
