The Cleveland State Vikings and the High Point Panthers meet Monday in the college basketball CBI Tournament at the Ocean Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Cleveland State vs. High Point Prediction.

Cleveland State Team Preview

The Cleveland State Vikings come into this game looking to build on a 51-49 win over Northern Colorado last time out. They finished the regular season with an 11-9 conference record, the same as PFW. Tristan Enaruna leads the across the board with 19.8 PPG and 6.5 RPG with 2.9 APG as well while Tae Williams has 12.9 PPG and 6.1 RPG and Drew Lowder has 11.6 PPG with 2.9 APG to round out the trio of double-digit scorers for Cleveland State so far this season. As a team, Cleveland State is averaging 76.2 PPG on 45.1% shooting from the field, 33.6% from three and 67.4% from the foul line this season.

High Point Team Preview

The High Point Panthers come into this one repping the Big South, sitting at 25-8 on the year. Duke Miles leads the Panthers in scoring and assists with 17.7 PPG and 3.6 APG while Kimani Hamilton has 14.9 PPG with 7.5 up to this point in the year. Kezza Giffa has 15.9 PPG with 2.9 APG and Abdoulaye Thiam has 12.9 PPG to cap off the scoring in double figures for High Point so far this season. Trae Benham has 8.4 PPG with 4.4 RPG as well and Justin Bodo Bodo has a team-high 9.3 RPG up to this point in the year. As a team, High Point is averaging 84.2 PPG on 46.1% shooting from the field, 34.8% from three and 77.9% from the foul line this season.

Cleveland State vs. High Point Prediction

I’m on High Point here. This High Point team is just too dangerous offensively when Cleveland State on the other side is not in a position to try to be going score for score with an electric offense like the one that High Point possesses. Should be an interesting matchup of styles, but in the end, I like High Point to pull through with the win and cover. The winner of this game will take on Arkansas State or Montana in the next round.

Chris’s Pick High Point -4.5
