The 2022-23 NCAA college basketball season continues on Saturday, Nov. 26, including an afternoon collision between the Merrimack Warriors and Bradley Braves.

Merrimack's season has gone completely off the rails, losing each of its last four games — including a 71-57 loss to Providence on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Bradley could also use a win of sorts, dropping back-to-back games ahead of this one. After losing, 55-44, to Liberty three days ago, it's clear that the Braves need a win.

Can Merrimack put an end to its lengthy losing skid? Or will Bradley manage to get back to its winning ways at home?

Merrimack vs Bradley Prediction & Pick

Merrimack's offense wasn't supposed to be anything special, but it's looked downright bad lately. The Warriors are averaging just 55.8 points over its four-game skid while only shooting 37.2% from the field overall this season (18th-worst in the nation).

It's also worth pointing out that Merrimack is winless on the road this season while Bradley is undefeated at home while boasting a plus-20.5 point differential. Considering how the Braves have won 10 straight games at Carver Arena, it's safe to say that the deck is stacked against the Warriors.

Final Score Prediction: Bradley: 75 | Merrimack: 62
