East Tennessee State has everything to gain and nothing to lose as they take on Xavier on the road. They have some talent but they are not expected to figure in the Southern Conference race this season.
Xavier has just the one loss and they are playing great ball right now. The Bucs don’t look like much of a threat so expect another easy victory. They have been covering too, 4 straight.
East Tennessee State Buccaneers
East Tennessee State has won their last four game and has been cashing tickets this season. They are 4-2 ATS including a cover at Kentucky.
They were 22.5 point dogs in that one and this one will be similar, they only lost by 17 and were only down 6 at halftime.
7 foot center Peter Jurkin scored a season high 17 points in that game. The former Hoosier is not usually such a factor but he could be against Xavier.
Desonta Bradford is the Bucs most important player. He leads the team in scoring, rebounding and assists from the wing.
When the Musketeers lost to Arizona State on a neutral court it looked like a red flag. Now it is just a good loss.
That loss was a low point for top scorer Trevon Blueitt. Since then he has scored 25 or more in three of four games.
This is a really good team and really good team’s usually have good playamkers. Quentin Goodin has really taken on that role as a sophmore averaging close to 7 dimes per game.
Power forward Tyrique Jones is super productive in limited minutes. He leads the team in rebounding but can probably do more.

Free East Tennessee State Buccaneers vs. Xavier Musketeers NCAAB Prediction:
When a line comes out Xavier will be a heavy favourite. They are 7-0 SUATS at home this season and have covered back to back spread of at least -17.
Having stood up to Kentucky, sort of, I do not expect ETSU to be in awe but Xavier is a better team. They can overwhelm you by playing basketball the right now.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Xavier -20
This game will be all about the first 5 minutes. The only way it is not a blowout is if Xavier is a little sluggish early. If they are sharp, lookout.
