La Salle vs. Miami Pick

La Salle vs. Miami College Basketball Predictions Against The Spread

Will No. 11 Miami have any trouble when it takes on La Salle tonight at 6PM ET? Here’s our take on today’s game.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Miami is favored in this game, as the Hurricanes are getting odds of -10.5 points against La Salle. The over/under total has been set at 136 points. Tonight’s game takes place from the Santander Arena in Reading, Pennsylvania and will air live on the ACC Network.

Miami is following in the footsteps of its football team, starting the season 3-0. However, the Hurricanes have yet to play in a lined game. Miami is scoring 85.3 points per game this season while holding opponents to 53 per game. The Canes are being led by Ja’Quan Newton, who is putting up 14 points per game while Dewan Huell is adding 12.7 points and 7.7 rebounds per contest.

La Salle is coming off an 82-61 loss to Boston College this past weekend to fall to 3-2 on the season. The Explorers are 2-3 against the spread, failing to cover in their last three games. La Salle is averaging 70.4 points per game this year while allowing 69.6 per contest. The Explorers have a very solid player in B.J. Johnson, who is averaging 22.8 points and 9.6 rebounds per game. Pookie Powell is adding 13.8 points and 4.6 rebounds per contest.

Bet on La Salle vs. Miami

Miami has won and covered in there last three meetings with La Salle, winning by at least 13 points in each game. Miami has also covered the spread in 9 of its last 11 against A-10 teams. La Salle has failed to cover in its last four at a neutral site and in 14 of its last 18 non-conference games. The public betting is nearly unanimous with Miami for this game and I think the Hurricanes will be able to keep Johnson in check, which leaves La Salle very limited.
