Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:

Rating:

The Red Foxes and Gaels haven’t played well offensively this season so don’t expect the trend to change in this game. The Red Foxes are averaging 57.1 points per game, but they will go over their season average against the Gaels, who haven’t played well defensively in recent games and are giving up 79 points per game in their last seven games. The Gaels are averaging 62 points per game on the road, but they will also go over their season average of 67.8 points in this game because the Red Foxes are giving up 66.4 points per game. Even though both teams will go over their season average, neither team will go over 70 points, which will keep the score under the total.

Prediction: Under
