Lafayette ended non-conference play with a 3-8 overall record, but it included a thrilling victory over Rutgers.

Bucknell Bison vs Lafayette Leopards. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Bucknell Bison. Lafayette upset Bucknell by a 74-72 margin in overtime at home in early February, while the Bison beat the Leopards by a 92-89 margin in overtime at home approximately two weeks ago.

 

Bucknell is 1-14 on the road this year, but the Bison looked stronger down the stretch than Lafayette, and given that both matches were close, and the Bison’s attack should have plenty of success in this one, I think the option here is to take Bucknell and the points. The Bucknell Bison will win to a predicted score of 77-70.
