Radford vs. George Washington: George Washington -3.5 (-110)

(7:00 PM ET tip)

George Washington is just 3-8 on the year with bad wins and losses all over the board. The A-10 team hasn’t looked at all like an A-10 team, but the Colonials should be able to start a winning streak with a win tonight over Radford.

Radford is extra careless with the basketball, turning the ball over 25.1 percent of the time this season. The Highlanders are also shooting a 45.1 percent effective field goal percentage while shooting just 30.6 percent from downtown and 44.5 percent from inside the arc.

You might see Radford win the glass, but that’ll be it. George Washington has a higher effective field goal percentage and should get way more high-quality looks from long range in this game. The Colonials will also get to the line more frequently with the way Radford has fouled this season.

Rhode Island vs. Milwaukee: Rhode Island -6.5 (-110)

(8:00 PM ET tip)

The Rhode Island line is short because Rhode Island will play on the road against Milwaukee. I still think Rhode Island should be a double-digit favorite in this game. The Rams have a high effective field goal percentage, and while Rhode Island turns the ball over at a high rate, Milwaukee is no real threat to forcing turnovers in the first place.

Meanwhile, Milwaukee has been atrocious on the offensive end. The Panthers have literally been below average in every category on the offensive end, from shooting to foul shots to rebounding. On the other hand, Rhode Island has limited teams to a 43.6 percent effective field goal percentage with terrific defense inside.

The Rams have limited teams to just 32 percent from long range and 40 percent from inside while blocking the most percentage of shots in the nation at 23.2 percent.

Indiana State vs. North Dakota State: Indiana State +2.5 (-110)

(8:00 PM ET tip)

North Dakota State has been all over the map this season. While the Bison have limited effective field goal percentage, they’ve had a hard time forcing turnovers and aren’t the greatest on the glass this season.

So far, the Bison have been able to limit fouls, but they haven’t been able to limit teams shooting the three, with opponents nailing over 33 percent from long range.

On the other hand, North Dakota State has looked terrible offensively. And while Indiana State hasn’t done well defensively, this is a better matchup for them. The Bison shoot 29.4 percent from long range and 44.3 percent from inside the arc. The Sycamores will more than likely win the rebounding battle and should force more turnovers in this game.

With Indiana State being slight underdogs, they’re worth a look with plus money on the road.
