Vanderbilt vs. Temple total, prediction: Don’t expect many points

The Vanderbilt Commodores have been playing without a pair of potential starters to begin the season, and on Tuesday, they will play host to a Temple team that is dealing with its own injury issues. 

The Owls will be without top scorer Khalif Battle for the rest of the season, leaving Temple with one rotation player who has taken at least five 3-point shots this season and made at least 30 percent of them. 

Vanderbilt is led by guard Scotty Pippen Jr’s 16.9 points per game, but has just three other players averaging at least 5.0 ppg, with 7-footer Liam Robbins and Dayton transfer Rodney Chatman currently out of the lineup. Only two Commodores are hauling in at least 4.5 rebounds per game. 

Vanderbilt has relied on 3-point attempts to put points on the board. Just 41.7 percent of its points have come on made 2-point shots, which ranks 339th in the nation, while the Commodores are allowing opponents to shoot 28.6 percent from beyond the arc, which ranks just inside the top 50. 

Vandy is 20th in the country in points allowed on a per-possession basis, and with both teams ranking outside the top 125 in points scored on a per-possession basis, Tuesday’s match up in Nashville will leave both offenses singing the blues. 

The play: Temple-Vanderbilt 135.5, Under.
