American Eagles

The Eagles made it all the way to the Patriot League conference semifinals last season before bowing it. The Eagles did it with defense as they were second in the league in fewest points allowed. The Eagles will have to replace Jesse Reed who averaged nearly 13 points per game last season but American returns three starters and a number of key reserves.

American brought in two players who could have an impact in 2016-2016 as Mark Gasperini and Sa’eed Nelson join the team. Gasperini could have a big impact in the frontcourt as he may get a starting spot immediately alongside Paris Maragkos.

2016-2017 American Eagles Betting

American is rarely a team that is on the regular betting board as the Patriot League is not one of the main conferences for college basketball betting. American went just 1-3 ATS in their three games that had lines posted last season and all of those games were on the road.

American Eagles Picks

The Eagles will do well just to finish at .500 in the Patriot League this season. They have a good guard in Jones but there are a lot of other question marks on the team. Perhaps Gasperini can come in and make an impact but it seem unlikely there is enough talent on this team for American to contend for a title this season.
