How to watch, listen or stream
Game time: 8:30 pm ET
Radio: 55KRC-AM (Xavier)/ FOXSports1360 AM (Northern Kentucky)
Stream: Fox Sports Go
Odds: Xavier is a 23.5-point favorite in this one.
Neither of these teams has fared well against the spread. Northern Kentucky is 0-2 and Xavier is 1-2, as it did not cover against Missouri (-13) or Miami-Ohio (-17).
O/U: Most have the total for this game at 148.
They aren't all that high, as Xavier should win this one fairly easily. Still, a hangover from their absolute demolition of Michigan is in play for the Musketeers. Especially with a weekend at the AdvoCare Invitational on the horizon.
