Washington is 1-5 against the spread in their last six home games, 0-5 against the spread against a team with a losing record, and 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 non-conference games. Hartford is 2-6 against the spread in their last eight road games, 0-5 against the spread in their last five games, and 0-4 against the spread in their last four non-conference games.
This looks to be just a few too many points so I will take them with Hartford.
