Against The Spread Pick
The Hofstra Pride are one of the hottest teams in the country and they come into this on the back of their seventh win in a row over Drexel. The Blue Hens are also a team in great form, with their last outing being a 22 point win over Northeastern and they have won four of five. The Pride has also been one of the best ATS teams this season and they are 20-7 in that regard and 8-2 over their last 10 games. They score 76.8 ppg on 45.3% from the field and they will have more than enough to cover the small road line they are being given against one of their best conference opponents of the season. Take Hofstra even though they play a Delaware team that is 16-11 ATS themselves and scores and impressive 74.9 ppg.
Over Under Pick
These are two teams that score a lot of points and they have been set a high total here. The ability is certainly there – Hofstra scored 47 points in the second half alone last time out against Drexel – but it is going to require both teams to get close to their season averages to push this total high enough for a win. If it becomes a free the bonanza down the stretch then this could tip to the over as Hofstra is the 8th best free-throw shooting team in the country. I think this will be a high scoring game but that Hofstra will pull away late and this game will fall just short of the total.
