The Grand Canyon Antelopes and the Alabama Crimson Tide meet Sunday in the college basketball NCAA Tournament Second Round at the Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Grand Canyon vs. Alabama Prediction.

Grand Canyon Team Preview

The Grand Canyon Antelopes come into this one looking to build on their 75-66 win over Saint Mary’s in the first round. Tyon Grant-Foster leads the Lopes in scoring with 19.4 PPG along with 5.9 RPG while Ray Harrison has 13.4 PPG with 2.9 RPG and a team-high 3.9 APG to lead Grand Canyon in assists. Gabe McGlothan has 13.5 PPG with a team-high 7.3 RPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Grand Canyon, leading the Lopes on the glass this season. As a team, Grand Canyon is averaging 79.5 PPG on 46.8% shooting from the field, 34.6% from three and 75.5% from the foul line this season.

Alabama Team Preview

The Alabama Crimson Tide come into this one looking to add to a 109-96 win over Charleston last time out. Alabama suffered five non-conference losses this year; to Ohio State, Clemson, Purdue, Creighton, and Arizona.Mark Sears leads the Tide in scoring with 21.1 PPG and 4.1 APG along with 4 RPG and Aaron Estrada has 13.4 PPG with 5.3 RPG and a team-high 4.5 APG as well on the year. Grant Nelson has 12 PPG with a team-high 5.7 RPG to lead the Tide on the glass and Rylan Griffen has 11.1 PPG with 3.7 RPG to cap off the scoring in double figures for Alabama up to this point in the year. As a team, Alabama is averaging 90.8 PPG on 47.8% shooting from the field, 36.9% shooting from the field and 78.6% from the foul line this season.

Grand Canyon vs. Alabama Prediction

I’m on Grand Canyon here. I think it’s really telling that Alabama won by 13 despite leading by as many as 34 in the game against Charleston as defense continues to be an issue for the Crimson Tide. Grand Canyon has all of the tools to make life difficult for Alabama and I think at worst the Lopes keep this one close if not give themselves a shot to win it outright. Give me Grand Canyon here.

Chris’s Pick Grand Canyon +10.5
