What to Know
After a three-game homestand, the Mercer Bears will be on the road. Mercer and the Chattanooga Mocs will face off in a Southern battle at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday at McKenzie Arena. The Bears have been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with Chattanooga and are hoping to record their first win since Feb. 24 of 2021.
Mercer was just a bucket shy of a victory on Wednesday and fell 70-69 to the Samford Bulldogs.
Meanwhile, Chattanooga didn't have too much trouble with the The Citadel Bulldogs at home on Wednesday as they won 82-63.
Mercer is expected to lose this next one by 3.5. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
Chattanooga's win lifted them to 13-13 while Mercer's loss dropped them down to 12-14. We'll see if the Mocs can repeat their recent success or if the Bears bounce back and reverse their fortune.
