    Analysis:

    Tonight in the Metro Atlantic Conference Niagara will come in on a full week’s rest. In fact, they have played just one game in the last twelve days. That could be an issue for the Purple Eagles as their offense has been stagnant down the stretch. Look for Rider to capitalize as they are playing their best basketball of the season on a four-game winning streak. Take the points with Rider.

    Analysis:

    Cody Martin has struggled with his shot this season shooting a career low 38 percent. As a result he has went under his prop offering in seven of his last nine games. Today is an opportune matchup as the 76ers are undermanned, and have Kelly Oubre Jr and KJ Martin also questionable. Play his over 7.5 points

    Analysis:

    Kentavious Caldwell Pope has a proper matchup to attack his points over tonight. He will face a Sacramento Kings team that was completely flat defensively against a Miami Heat team missing three key players. Typically this year the Kings woes carry over into the next game. Caldwell Pope get over this number by a basket.

    Analysis:

    The Cleveland Cavaliers have not had a strong performance post All Star break yet. In four games they are 2-2, and both victories were not their best output. Today, look for the Cavaliers to be sparked off Max Strus’s insane winning shot. Additionally, they played the Bulls in a recent matchup on February 14th, and the Bulls are coming off a poor loss to the Pistons.

    Analysis:

    An aggressive line move has occurred in the first game on today’s slate. Out in the Patriot League American is coming off a televised upset win over Colgate. Army on the other hand has seen their offense drop significantly in two straight blowout losses. Look for American to show a bit of road fatigue in a consecutive road spot.

    Analysis:

    Texas State concluded a four game road trip Saturday with a victory over Georgia State. The Bobcats ended a three game skid with a strong defensive effort holding the Panthers to 59 points. Returning home look for the Bobcats to excel on their home floor where they have won four straight games. They’ll get the season sweep over UL Monroe tonight.

    Expect Devin Vassell to be high on the Minnesota Timberwolves scouting report tonight. He has averaged 25 points in three matchups this season, while shooting 52 percent from three point range. Over his last six games he has had a strong pattern of up and down performances. Coming off a 27 point outburst Sunday against the Lakers, grab his under tonight with the Timberwolves emphasizing to slow him down.

    Analysis:

    The New Orleans Pelicans have had issues post All Star break with consistency. Brandon Ingram missed action as well as CJ McCollum, and today Zion Williamson is questionable. Look for the Pelicans to rise above leaving home and heading on the road to Madison Square Garden. The Knicks have struggled with a depleted lineup and are in a back to back spot.

    Any time there is a coaching transition it is going to take time for success. For the Nets they have dropped four consecutive games, and their first two post All Star break. Tonight they have a more optimal matchup facing a Grizzlies team that scored just 95 points in their Friday matchup against the Clippers. Tail the Nets

    Analysis:

    Incarnate Word showed on Saturday they still had enough starters and a bench presence to hang around against McNeese. Typically any multiple game suspension, the impact is going to be felt on the second game not the first. In the first matchup against Nicholls their leading scorer was Alex Anderson with 21. With Anderson suspended look for Nicholls to find that extra gear in the second half.

    Analysis:

    The New Orleans Pelicans will be down a couple of role players tonight due to suspension in Naji Marshall and Jose Alvarado. That will affect their second unit rotation but also give a chance for their deep roster to shine. Look for the Pelicans starters to put forth a crisp effort, especially after a lackluster first half their last matchup. Take the Pelicans as the favorite.

    Analysis:

    One of the toughest places to go on the road is Hawaii. For Long Beach State they played Thursday, while Hawaii has had a full week off. This likely will see Hawaii get off to an early lead, but look for Long Beach State to claw back into this one. They have won five straight games and took the first meeting over Hawaii.

    Analysis:

    A third straight road game does present challenges for Lipscomb on the road against Austin Peay. In fact, today marks their sixth road game out of their last nine total matchups. Expect their offense to trump any issues defensively against an Austin Peay team they defeated by fourteen points on their home floor. Tail Lipscomb.

    Analysis:

    The Big West has featured some great play atop the conference. UC Irvine has a one game lead over UC San Diego thanks to an early season victory by eleven points. As great as the Tritons have been on their home floor, UC Irvine is such a tough team to stop on the offensive end of the floor. Pierre Crockrell ranks 17th in the country in assists, and is relentless from a pace stand point. Take Irvine to gain the sweep over UC San Diego.
