Duquesne Dukes vs UMass Minutemen 1/8/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Duquesne Dukes of the Atlantic 10 Conference will go against the UMass Minutemen of the Atlantic 10 Conference in NCAAB action in William D. Mullins Memorial Center Amherst, MA, on Saturday, January 8, 2022, at 12:00 PM (EST).

 

This year, the Duquesne Dukes are yet to play an Atlantic 10 league game. They have a 5-7 overall record heading into their game against UMass. The problem is that they have not played a game in a long time.

 

Their last match was on December 19th, when they defeated UC Irvine 76-54. COVID caused their past four matches to be canceled or postponed. They were set to face George Mason and George Washington this week, but both games were canceled. This one, hopefully, will work out.

 

The Dukes are healthy going into this match, with just Rodney Gunn out with an ankle ailment. As far as we know, there are zero COVID cases, thus this game appears to be a go.

 

Leon Ayers, who produces 12.9 points per game, leads the Dukes. Kevin Easley leads the squad with 12.8 points and 6.6 rebounds per game. With 10.9 points per game, Tre Williams and Primo Spears are the other two double-figure scorers. The Dukes score 70 points per game on average and allow 71.2 points per game on average.

 

  • The University of Duquesne Dukes is 2-4 ATS in their last 6 matches.
  • Duquesne is 0-5 SU in their last 5 matches on the road against UMass.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of Duquesne’s last 6 matches in the Atlantic 10 Conference.

Duquesne Dukes vs UMass Minutemen Predictions 1/8/2022

 

The UMass Minutemen had many matches postponed due to COVID, but they were able to play one on Wednesday, falling 80-72 against Richmond as 10.5-point underdogs.

 

With the defeat, they fell to 7-6 overall and 0-1 in the A10. However, they have some impressive victories under their credit, including victories against Penn State, Rutgers, and UNC Greensboro. Then they lose an unexpectedly terrible game against Yale, losing by 20 points. They were also beaten by Ball State, a favorite. On the road, UMass performed well against a strong Richmond squad, covering the spread.

 

Rich Kelly, a sharpshooter who hit four three-pointers, led them with 20 points. Trent Buttrick and CJ Kelly both got 16 points, and Noah Fernandes chipped in with ten.

 

UMass scores 79 points per game on average and surrenders 78.2 points per game. They enjoy shooting threes and are proficient at it, draining them at a rate of 41%, which ranks them seventh in the country. With 10.8 three-pointers made per game, they are in 13th place.

 

CJ Kelly averages 13.6 points per game, while Rich Kelly produces 13. Fernandes tops the club with 16.2 points per game. Buttrick averages 12 points per game in his career.

 

  • The University of Massachusetts Minutemen is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 5 of UMass’ last 6 matches against Duquesne.
  • UMass is 1-4 SU in their last 5 matches in the Atlantic 10 Conference.

Duquesne Dukes vs UMass Minutemen. The NCAAB pick for this game is the UMass Minutemen. Duquesne did not play since December 19, so they’ll be a touch rusty. They’re in fantastic health, which is great, but UMass isn’t.

 

TJ Weeks and Preston Santos are doubtful due to sickness, while Dibaji Walker is out for the season, and Javohn Garcia is out due to academic obligations. However, because UMass is the better team and they are playing at home, they should comfortably win this game.

 

UMass is one of the finest and most efficient three-point shooting teams in the country, and the Dukes’ defense of the three-point shot is not their strong suit. UMass will win and cover the ATS to a predicted score of 79-71.
