The LIU Sharks and Central Connecticut Blue Raiders face off on Thursday in a college basketball showdown at Detrick Gynmanisum. Let’s look at the betting matchup and give a free LIU vs Central Connecticut prediction.

LIU Offense Looks to Bounce Back

LIU faced off against Wagner in the last game and the offense wasn’t good enough scoring only 57 points and that led to the defeat. Eric Acker was the top player putting up 15 points. LIU on the season is averaging 66.6 points while their defense is giving up 76.9 points per game. The offense is ranked 328th in the league which means they are one of the worst offenses in college basketball. Tai Stickland is averaging 14 points while shooting 44 percent from the field and 25.7 percent from behind the three point line. 

Central Connecticut Coming off Two Close Wins

Each of the last wins for Central Connecticut have come by only a point. In the last game against Sacred Heart, Connect Connecitcut scored 68 points and that included 46 points in the second half. Tre Breland had a strong game putting up 21 points and six rebounds. Central Connecticut is averaging 72.3 points while the defense is giving up 66.7 points per game. The defense is ranked 50th in the league and theya re going to need the defense to step up here. Allan Jeanne-Rose has been the top player averaging 14.9 points while shooting 54.4 percent from the field and 35 percent from behind the three point line. 

LIU Vs Central Connecticut Betting Prediction

This game is going to come down to defense, and Central Connecticut is the better defensive team. LIU is giving up 76.9 points per game and their defense is going to really struggle in this game. I trust this Central Connecticut offense and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. LIU isn’t going to be keeping up, and Central Connecticut is going to cover the spread here.
