Shootouts Leading to OVERs With Xavier

Xavier enters the NCAAB Tournament riding a string of seven consecutive OVERs for bettors. In the Musketeers' past seven outings there has been an average of 169.1 points per game. Xavier starts their March Madness against an offensive-minded Weber State Wildcats Friday.

Shark Bites
  • Xavier is 7-0 SU in their past seven coming off a loss.
  • Weber State is 3-9 ATS in their past 12 games.
  • Xavier is 1-3 ATS in their past four games against teams with winning records.

The Musketeers spent a good portion of the season ranked inside the top 15 thanks to a balanced attack that has seen them outscore opponents by more than 10 points per game on average. The true key to a prolonged run in the tournament for Xavier will be their continued play from their incredible depth of guards, as their top three scorers play either the one or two position.

Weber State has used their superior size — six players of 6’7" or taller in their lineup — to dominate within the arc. The Wildcats drained more than 55 percent of their shots from inside the arc and have a tendency to get themselves to the charity strip if they don’t.
