Weber State Wildcats
You have to tip your hat to Weber State for having a very successful season they won the Big Sky conference in the regular season and they won the Big West Conference tournament.
However, who did they really play? They didn’t exactly have to go through the heat and fire to achieve a 26-8 record. It was a very soft record and they have yet to be tested.
Xavier is the first real notable team they are playing this year and we’ll see what exactly they are made of.
Weber State has a quality offense statistically as they ranked 16th in field goal percentage and they played a nice brand of defense holding teams to 66.9 points per game.
The Xavier Musketeers are a team that typically stingy defense, but this year they were very poor. Xavier gave up 71 points per game, but a lot of that had to do with the style of offense they employed as they ran an up-tempo offense that scored points in bunches.
When you look at their field goal percentage on the defensive end they were 81st. Still a little high, but better numbers that show that Xavier give their opposition some fits when they take their shots.
On the offensive end, Xavier was one of the best in the nation. The Musketeers were 18th in the nation in points per game scoring over 80 points per game.
They weren’t entirely efficient as they were 119th in the nation in field goal percentage, but they make it up by grabbing their own rebounds. Xavier averaged 40 rebounds a game which was good for 16th in the nation.

Free Weber State vs. Xavier Musketeers CBB Prediction: Xavier -13.5
Weber State wasn’t a good team in terms of ATS. Weber State didn’t cover more often than not while Xavier was one of the more successful teams in terms of covering the spread. I like Xavier this year, they look like and have the pieces in place to make a run.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Xavier -13.5
Xavier is going to score their points and while Weber State is an efficient team on the offensive end, I do believe Xavier will be able to contain for most of the game and cover the spread.
