10* Oddsmaker Mistake
Northeastern vs. Eastern Michigan,
12/17/2019 19:00 EDT,
Score: 55 - 60
Point Spread: +2/-110 Northeastern
The Northeastern Huskies have won five of their first ten games despite losing to Davidson in their last game by seven points. In that game, Northeastern's offense was underwhelming as it only scored 63 points while shooting just 28.0% from the three-point line. Now, Northeastern will look to forget about that performance as quickly as possible as it has to travel to Michigan.
Leading the Huskies offensively is senior guard Jordan Roland who has been very solid this season. He is averaging a team-high 25.0 points per game along with 3.1 rebounds. In addition, he is also averaging 1.7 steals per game as he has been quite active on both sides of the ball.
It’s offense versus defense and we like the offense here. Eastern Michigan is a slow-paced zone team, in fact, they play zone as much as any team in the country behind Syracuse & Merrimack. If you make 3-pointers you can beat Eastern and Northeastern can do that. The Huskies are #3 in 2-pt% and #12 in 3-pt% plus they are #3 in free throws. Eastern Michigan has topped 62 just once and played a weak schedule. They have a horrible offense and will struggle to keep pace. I like Northeastern big on Tuesday night!
