Why is Northern Iowa capable of covering

Northern Iowa is becoming accustomed to playing as an underdog, as this will be the third straight game in which it has done so since defeating non-Division I Wartburg to begin the season. The Panthers had not played in ten days prior to this event, as their scheduled game at Virginia had been canceled last week. On Monday, they raced out to a 43-32 lead over the Dons before fading in the second half, but they still covered the 6.5-point spread.

Northern Iowa was led by junior forward James Betz, who scored 19 points on 8 of 12 shooting. Sophomore guard Bowen Born added 16 points, six rebounds, and five assists. This season, Born has been the team’s best player, averaging 17.3 points and 3.0 assists per game. The Antelopes have failed to cover the spread in three of their four games this season, so they are not deserving of being favored on Tuesday morning.

Why can the Grand Canyon cover so much ground?

Grand Canyon was unable to get its offense going on Monday, but the Antelopes put up another strong defensive performance. Wichita State was held to 55 points on 38.3% shooting, including 6 of 23 from beyond the arc. This season, Grand Canyon has allowed fewer than 60 points in every game, making the Antelopes one of the best defensive teams in the country.

Northern Illinois is coming off a brutal second half performance on Monday, which could carry over into this game against a tough defense. The Panthers blew a double-digit lead and have now lost two straight games, whereas Grand Canyon had won three of its first four. Jovan Blacksher Jr., a junior guard, is the team’s leader.

With 11.6 points per game, he leads a balanced lineup, with five teammates averaging at least six points per game.
