Also key to the Spartans’ offensive game plan is the play of Keondre Kennedy who has hit 41.4% of his field goal attempts on his way to averaging 12.5 points per game.

Offensive production has been hard to come by for UNCG this season, as they are currently ranked 378th in college basketball at 65.0 points per game. A major reason for low scoring totals is the fact that they have played at a below average pace, and have struggled to knock down outside shots. As a team, the Spartans’ 3-point shooting percentage sits at just 34.0%, placing them 249th in the NCAA.

Not only has Clark been key to the team’s scoring efforts, but he is Citadel’s top rebounder at 6.67 boards per contest.

Free Spread Prediction: Citadel Bulldogs +10

If you’re considering whether to make a bet against the spread in this matchup, we suggest betting on the Citadel Bulldogs team as +10 point underdogs. One obstacle that often hinders teams who are significant underdogs is being matched up against a team that can control the pace of the game. However, both Citadel and UNCG come into today’s game with possession rates that are near the NCAA average. Given that the style of play won’t be a problem for the Bulldogs and they have a 4-1 record against the spread in their last 5 games as underdogs, we think they will cover the spread at home.
