Saint Joseph’s Hawks vs UMass Minutemen Predictions 2/12/2022

 

UMass has a 7-3 home record into Wednesday’s match versus George Washington. They were a 7.5-point underdog over a 4-5 GW club, which made sense. The Minutemen, on the other hand, underperformed on Wednesday, falling early in the first half against the Colonials and never recovering, losing 77-68.

 

The Minutemen shot 41% from the field and 30% (8-27) from the three-point range. They were also outrebounded by eight, giving GW a 47 percent field goal percentage.

 

UMass is inconsistent this season, much like St. Joe’s. The defense is a major problem, allowing 77.9 points per game on 48.3 percent shooting (35.9 percent 3pt). The Minutemen rank 187th overall, 43rd in Adjusted Offensive Efficiency, and 338th in Adjusted Defensive Efficiency, according to KenPom.

 

  • The total went OVER in 14 of UMass’ last 19 matches.
  • UMass is 9-2 SU in their last 11 matches at home against Saint Joseph’s.
  • The total went OVER in 8 of UMass’ last 12 matches in the Atlantic 10 Conference.

Saint Joseph’s Hawks vs UMass Minutemen. The NCAAB pick for this game is the UMass Minutemen. Both teams have advantages and disadvantages.

 

I believe UMass coach Matt McCall’s comments about his squad being underworked will resonate with his players. They are strong at home, finishing 7-4 overall, which isn’t terrible for a club that struggled in the conference and away from home (2-5).

 

UMass has a lot of talented shooters as well, averaging over 39% from long range at home. Take UMass to bounce back after their most recent home loss. The UMass Minutemen will win by a predicted score of 79-74.
