What to Know
A Horizon League battle is on tap between the PFW Mastodons and the Robert Morris Colonials at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at UPMC Events Center. The teams split their matchups last year, with Robert Morris winning the first 102-88 and PFW taking the second 87-82.
After constant struggles on the road, the Mastodons have finally found some success away from home. They picked up a 71-61 win over the Youngstown State Penguins this past Friday.
Meanwhile, the Colonials were just a bucket shy of a victory this past Friday and fell 78-77 to the Cleveland State Vikings.
Barring any buzzer beaters, PFW is expected to win a tight contest. They are currently four-for-four against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
PFW’s win brought them up to 5-7 while Robert Morris’ defeat pulled them down to 2-11. Two defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Mastodons have allowed their opponents to shoot 46.90% from the floor on average, which is the eighth highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. The Colonials have experienced some struggles of their own as they are 14th worst in college basketball in points allowed per game, with 77.6 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
