Little Rock Trojans Betting Preview

The Trojans were sitting at .500 after their first 22 games, then hit a nice run to close the year. Little Rock would manage a nine-game win streak to finish off the regular season. Next came a conference tournament win over Western Illinois before a loss to Morehead State on March 9.

In the matchup versus the Eagles, the Trojans were down by five points heading into the second half. Little Rock didn’t get any closer on a 37-28 run from there and lost 69-55 in the end. Bradley Douglas was the team’s top scorer with his 14 points and four rebounds off the bench.

Fairfield Stags Betting Preview

Over on the Fairfield side, they managed an 18-10 run over their first 28 games this year. The Stags finished the regular season in the 2nd place in the MAAC, behind Quinnipiac. The Stags would beat Canisius and Mount St. Mary’s to finish the regular-season campaign, then took out Iona and Marist in the tournament. The next game was a loss to Saint Peter’s, though.

Last Saturday, versus Saint Peters, the Stags were up 32-25 in the locker room. Fairfield took a 43-31 deficit the rest of the way, however, ultimately falling 68-63. Tops in scoring was Caleb Fields with his 17 points, nine rebounds and five assists in 40 minutes of action.

  • Fifteen of Little Rock's last 16 games have produced a total of 152 or fewer points.

Little Rock vs Fairfield Prediction

I’ll lean toward Fairfield. This should be a pretty good matchup if both teams play well, though. The Stags certainly need to shoot better here than they did in the Saint Peter’s game. Fairfield notched just 35.4 percent from the field in that one, 20 percent from 3-point range and 70.6 percent from the line for an overall listless offensive effort.

As for Little Rock, they shot a tepid 41.1 percent from the field with a 33-27 rebounding deficit in their latest loss to Morehead State. The Trojans had scored 80 or more points in six straight games prior to that, however, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see a high total on Sunday. Ultimately, I like the Stags to power out the cover/win, though.
