Eastern Kentucky vs Lipscomb Betting Prediction

Eastern Kentucky comes into this matchup in first place in the ASUN standings, but Lipscomb is only two games behind and will have the home court advantage here. Lipscomb has won three games in a row and they have scored at least 84 points in six of their last seven games. The Bisons are shooting 49.6% from the field, while Eastern Kentucky is shooting 46.3% from the field. The Colonels also have a high powered offense and they beat Lipscomb by a score of 80-72 in their first meeting this season. This should be a very good game and there should be no shortage of points, but I am going to take the better shooting team at home. Give me Lipscomb here.
