Charlotte vs Milwaukee Prediction & Pick

Milwaukee might be the hotter team on paper, but things are working against it this evening. The Panthers struggle against C-USA opponents, dropping 10 of their last 12 meetings with the conference. On the flip side, the 49ers are 8-1 straight up in their previous nine outings against the Horizon League.

Milwaukee will have a tough time scoring against a Charlotte squad that surrenders just 62.5 PPG (No. 15). The 49ers also give up the seventh-fewest rebounds (29.7 RPG) in the NCAA, so it's not like the Panthers will even get many second chances.

And even if Charlotte's offense isn't exciting, it's still the more accurate time. While the 49ers shoot 46.8% from the field (No. 35) and 37.6% on threes (No. 21), the Panthers average 44.8% (No. 140) and 34.3% (No. 158), respectively.

If Charlotte can get its offense rolling early on, it won't have an issue maintaining distance from Milwaukee. Back the 49ers winning this one.

Final Score Prediction: Charlotte: 74 | Milwaukee: 69

Charlotte vs Milwaukee Best Bet

A 139.5-point total isn't too much for these teams to surpass. After all, each of Milwaukee's last six games has done so while it's happened twice in Charlotte's last four. On top of that, the OVER is 5-1 in the Panthers' last six games on a Monday and 4-2 in the 49ers' last six as the favorite.

With both defenses having recent consistency issues, expect more points than expected in Daytona Beach.

Bet: Over 139.5 Points (-110)
