Xavier vs Kennesaw State Prediction | March Madness Expert Picks

If there is one thing that Xavier has on its team it is a strong scoring ability. The Musketeers score 81 points per game, shooting 49% from the field as a team. Led by Souley Boum, Xavier had instances this year where the team scored 90 or more points. In that same vein, Kennesaw State has shown its scoring ability, scoring 75.3 points per game on the season.

While it seems like Xavier should dust Kennesaw State here, the Owls do shoot a respectable 37% from the three-point line. That gives me a little bit of pause to bet on Xavier -13. Stay away from the moneyline here. Instead, take the OVER 154. It’s likely that this game could go two ways: Xavier flat-out dominates Kennesaw State and hit more than half of the over than needed, or Kennesaw State keeps it somewhat close in a shootout. One thing is for certain, the Owls will struggle heavily in trying to stop this Musketeer offense.
