Against The Spread Pick

George Mason has been lackluster on the offensive side to say the least, averaging just 66.8 points per game. They get worse on the road, averaging an even lower 64.6 points per game and are going to have a tough go against the Dukes, who are holding opponents to an impressive 63.2 points per game at home. The Dukes are better offensively at home, averaging 72.8 points per game. The Patriots are built around their good defense, but they will struggle to slow down the Duquesne because the defense they rely on just isn’t there on the road. The Dukes do a good job finding the open shooter, averaging 14.1 assists per game to George Mason’s 10.8 assists per game. With the Dukes dominating games between the two teams, Duquesne is the play.

Over Under Pick

The Dukes are one of the best defensive teams in the country, holding opponents to just 64.9 points per game. They give up an average of 63.2 points per game at home and should be able to keep the Patriots, who struggle offensively on the road, under their season average for points. Even though the Patriots defense is worse on the road, they should keep the Dukes under their season average as well, which makes the under the play. The under is 15-12 in Duquesne’s last 27 games and 4-2 in George Mason’s last six games.
