10* Over Mercer/UNC-Wilmington (7:00 ET): This is exactly the kind of O/U play that I look for in College Hoops. Mercer has gone Under in five straight games. But that's resulted in their lowest O/U of the season to date. During these last five games, they've shot a paltry 39.9% from the field. That's way down from where they are normally at, which is 43.1% for the year. Facing an opponent that can definitely score, tonight's game is going to go way Over the total.

UNC-Wilmington averages 89.7 PPG at home, so they are a more than willing "dance partner" for Mercer's Over problems. Yes, that average is inflated by the fact UNCW three times scored 100+ against non-board teams. There's quite a drop in scoring when looking at D-I opponents, including the last three games, all of which have seen the Seahawks held below 60 points. But tonight should be a breakout night as Mercer is giving up 81.3 PPG on the road this season!

It's not just the road. Mercer is allowing 76.7 PPG overall, so they are a bad defensive team. At the same time, their own offense should get cooking here as UNC-Wilmington just let Charlotte shoot a blistering 57.4% from the field two Saturdays ago. Both teams have been off for more than week, so we're getting lots of fresh legs in this one. Look for that to lead to an "offensive-minded game." These teams met last year and the final score was 77-73 in Mercer's favor. UNC Wilmington shot only 25.9% from three-point range in that game, but is hitting over 43% at home this year. 10* Over Mercer/UNC Wilmington
