When and where: January 15, 2019, Michael J. Hagan Arena, Philadelphia, PA, 9:00 PM ET

Saint Joseph’s Hawks hope to put an end to their four-game losing streak on Tuesday when they host the visiting Davidson Wildcats. After getting trounced on the road to North Carolina, the Wildcats have bounced back with three straight wins over VCU, George Mason and Duquesne. Meanwhile, the slumping Hawks haven’t won a game in 2019 yet. They are coming off back-to-back road losses to Duquesne and St. Bonaventure.

Davidson survives VCU

After leading going into halftime, Davidson came out flat against VCU in the second half, and it nearly cost them the game. They were down 47-35 at one point, and the Rams looked to be on the cusp of winning their fifth consecutive game.

Fortunately for Davidson, freshman forward Luka Brajkovic and sophomore guard Kellan Grady both picked up their games on a night where neither team was shooting the ball well. Davidson only finished with 38.2 percent shooting, which was only slightly better than VCU’s 37.3.

Grady, however, went 7-of-10 shooting from the floor and 3-of-4 from 3-pointer for 21 points, six rebounds and three assists. Brajkovic knocked down 14 points, seven rebounds and five assists. They were the only two players on Davidson’s roster that scored in double figures in the 64-57 win.

Saint Joseph’s losing streak continues

The Hawks opened their game against Duquesne playing like a team that was tired of losing. They were sharp on offense and forced the Dukes into tough shots on defense. At one point, they even built a 15-point lead under Duquesne’s roof in a game most expected them to lose.

Then reality hit like a ton a bricks.

The Dukes went on a run and came back to take the lead before the end of the first half. They then went on to trade blows with the Hawks in the second half and eventually pulled away with the 85-84 win. A first half meltdown coupled with the inability to close out the game was the story of the night for Saint Joseph’s as they headed back home with their fourth consecutive loss.

Charlie Brown Jr. led the Hawks with 28 points, four rebounds, two assists and two blocks, while Jared Bynum and Lamarr Kimble each chipped in 14 points apiece.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Saint Joseph’s hasn’t shown the consistency in closing out games, which makes them a hard team to trust in this one. Davidson doesn’t boast much firepower on the offensive end, but they are shooting the ball better than the Hawks this season. They are averaging 44.1 percent shooting in comparison to the Hawks’ 41.5 percent.

Davidson can also play respectable defense.

I believe the key in this game will be the Wildcats’ ability to give the Hawks fits on offense. Any form of decent defensive resistance has typically led to a bad night for the Hawks this season. The same will continue to be the case on Tuesday when the Wildcats come to town. There is too much pressure on Brown to carry the offensive load, and he’ll come up short for the fifth consecutive time.

Prediction: Davidson Wildcats (-4.5)

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The over is 6-1 in the Hawks’ last seven overall games and 5-0 in the Wildcats’ last five. Saint Joseph’s has only scored more than 60 points in one of their last seven games, and Davidson has only scored more than 65 points in one of their last six. These aren’t very good offenses that’ll be on the floor on Tuesday night. Take the under in this game.

Prediction: Under (142)
