Morehead State Eagles
Morehead State has started off the year decently. They may not be some great team, but maybe they can shock some folks by the end of the year.
The Eagles lost to the East Tennessee State Buccaneers on Saturday by a score of 82-75. Things will be much harder for them when they face the #22 team in the nation on Wednesday night.
For the most part, this is a team that has not faced anyone all that great. There have been a few exceptions, but they have really not seen a club on the level of the Musketeers.
In their last game, Johni Broome had a big day scoring the ball. He finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds. The offense was not the main issue for them in the loss to the Bucs.
Xavier has had a very good season so far. I have been quite impressed with what I have seen out of this ball club. They will only get better and find their identity more as the year goes on.
The Musketeers have a record of 9-1. It is hard to be critical when you have that kind of record through your first ten games. With that said, things will get much tougher for them, and expectedly so when they face a very tough Big East schedule.
They beat their in-state rival, Cincinnati Bearcats on Saturday by a score of 83-63. That was a good win for them because Cincy is no slouch team.
In the win over the Bearcats, Jack Nunge was the star of the game. He finished the day with 31 points and 15 rebounds. Also, Paul Scruggs chipped in 14 points, 5 dimes, and 5 boards.

Free Morehead State Eagles vs. Xavier Musketeers NCAAB Summary:
I look for Xavier to keep up their good play in this ball game.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Xavier ATS
Xavier is not going to get to play teams on this level once their conference play begins. That is why it is imperative that they take care of business at home against a team they are much better than.
In a lot of instances, the Musketeers have been scoring a lot of points against the weaker teams. I look for that to happen on Wednesday. I really do not trust that the defense for the Eagles can consistently stop them.
I just do not feel that Morehead State can keep this thing all that close. I would not be surprised if this game gets rather uncompetitive pretty soon.
I am going with Xavier laying the 15.5 points at home here.
