My College basketball selections are indepthly researched with no stone left unturned in bringing long term winning selections to my clients.

The Northern Illinois Huskies are 152nd in the nation in offensive rating with 102.7 and are 200th in pace of play in the country with 70.1 possessions per 40 minutes. They will once again look to grind it out vs a top teir Gaels side, that is not stranger to physical defensive minded basketball, as only 1 of their 8 opponents this season have eclipsed the 66 point plateau against them. My own projections estimate that the visiting Huskies will not breach the 60 point plateau, while their own defence grinds this game down into a sleepy affair that remains on the low side of the total.
