Davidson Wildcats (16-10; 13-11-1 ATS; 10-15 O/U) vs. Duquesne Dukes (15-13; 11-8-1 ATS; 10-10 O/U)

The red-hot Davidson Wildcats will head on the road to take on the Duquesne Dukes in an A10  clash Saturday afternoon from the A.J. Palumbo Center in Pittsburgh. The Wildcats cruised to a 76-52 home win against Fordham on Thursday night, and the Dukes are coming off a 73-67 road loss to St. Bonaventure. This marks the lone meeting this season, and Davidson recorded a 74-60 win in the only meeting last season.

Davidson Thumps Fordham in 11th Conference Win

The Davidson Wildcats dominated in both ends of the court in their 76-52 home win against Fordham on Wednesday night to boost their A10 record to 11-4. The Wildcats shot a sizzling 69% on the night, and limited Fordham to a 33% shooting performance. Kellan Grady had a big night in the win, collecting 28 points on an 11 for 13 mark from the field. The freshman guard has scored at least 19 points in three out of his last four games, and he is now up to 16.7 points on a 51% clip from the field. Wildcats’ leading scorer Peyton Aldridge recorded his third straight double-double with 16 points and 12 rebounds in Wednesday’s victory. The senior forward continues to dominate the A10, and is now averaging 20.7 points and 7.4 rebounds per game.

The Wildcats continue to roll, winning three straight and five out of their last six games behind consistent scoring and strong defense. They have moved into second place in the A10 standings, and are ranked at 56th overall in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings. Davidson continues to excel offensively and are currently averaging 76.2 points per game, placing them 109th overall. They are also in a groove on defense, and are holding opponents to 66.8 points, positioning them 48th overall.

Duquesne Falls to St. Bonaventure in Fifth Straight Loss

The struggling Duquesne Dukes dropped to 6-9 in A10 play in their close 73-67 road loss to St. Bonaventure on Wednesday night. The Dukes shot a poor 34.9% on the night, while the Bonnies were held to a 45% shooting performance. Eric Williams Jr. scored a team-high 19 points along with eight rebounds in the defeat. The freshman guard has scored a combined 37 points in his last two games, and he is currently averaging 14.6 points and 8.9 rebounds per game. Mike Lewis II struggled in Wednesday’s loss, sinking only 1 of 9 shots for a total of five points. The sophomore guard is in a rut, scoring 12 or fewer points in five straight games, bringing his season average down to 14.4 points on 38% shooting.

The Dukes are in a tailspin, losing five consecutive games due to poor defense to bring them near the bottom of the A10 standings to 10th place. They are placed at 187th in the country in Ken Pomeroy’s college basketball rankings, and are averaging 72.8 points per game, ranking them 216th overall. They are conceding an average of 69.2 points per game, positioning them 95th in the country.

Trends:

The Davidson Wildcats are:

  • 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games against Duquesne.
  • 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 road games.
  • 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 games overall.
  • 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite.

The Duquesne Dukes are:

  • No Key Trends

I am taking Davidson in this contest. Davidson is red-hot, winning six out of their last seven games with five of those five wins in that span coming by at least 11 points. They are playing stifling defense, allowing an average of only 64.3 points in their last seven games. Furthermore, Duquesne is struggling right now as they have conceded at least 80 points in four out of their last five games, and they have not been productive offensively either, giving me confidence a hot Davidson team can come away with a convincing road win.
