The Hofstra Pride and the Cincinnati Bearcats will face off in an exciting NIT matchup on Saturday. Both teams have had solid seasons and will be looking to end their campaigns on a high note. In this article, we provide a detailed preview of the game and offer our prediction for the final outcome.
The Hofstra Pride has had a successful season, finishing with a record of 25-9 overall and 16-2 in the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA). They have been particularly strong on offense, averaging 75.1 points per game and outscoring opponents by 9.1 points per game. Here's a look at their top performers:
Aaron Estrada: Estrada has been the driving force behind Hofstra's success this season, averaging 20.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.1 assists, and 1.5 steals over the past ten games.
Jaquan Carlos: Carlos is an excellent playmaker, averaging 4.8 assists and 1.6 steals per game for the Pride.
The Pride's defense has also been solid this season, holding opponents to just 66 points per game on average. They have been particularly effective at blocking shots, averaging 4.8 blocks per game.
The Cincinnati Bearcats have had an up-and-down season, finishing with a record of 22-12 overall and 11-7 in the American Athletic Conference (AAC). However, they have been a strong offensive team, averaging 77.3 points per game and shooting 45% from the field. Here's a look at their top performers:
David Dejulius: Dejulius has been the Bearcats' most consistent player, averaging 15.1 points and 6.5 assists over the past ten games.
Landers Nolley II: Nolley has been an excellent shooter for Cincinnati, shooting 41.9% from beyond the arc and averaging 16.6 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.
The Bearcats' defense, however, has been their Achilles heel this season. They have allowed an average of 74 points per game to opponents, which is a significant weakness that the Hofstra Pride will look to exploit.
Cincinnati are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Cincinnati's last 5 games.
Cincinnati are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Cincinnati's last 6 games on the road.
Cincinnati are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the Colonial Athletic conference.
Hofstra are 12-2 ATS in their last 14 games.
Hofstra are 13-1 SU in their last 14 games.
Hofstra are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games at home.
Hofstra are 0-5 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the American Athletic Conference conference.
Given the offensive firepower on both sides, this game has the potential to be a high-scoring affair. Both teams have been scoring at a high rate in recent games, with Hofstra averaging 78.3 points and Cincinnati averaging 79.3 points over their past 10 games.
Furthermore, the over/under line for this game is set at 150.5 points, which indicates that oddsmakers are expecting a high-scoring game as well. We believe that the over will cash in this game, as both teams have the ability to score from anywhere on the court.
In terms of a winner, this game could go either way. Both teams have been playing well in recent games and have talented players on their rosters. However, we give the slight edge to the Hofstra Pride but the play is the over.
