The Dukes continue their brutal second half of the season, as they have lost four of their last six games. In their last five contests, they’re averaging just 63.8 points and allowing 70.8 points and 35.9 percent shooting from beyond the arc. At home, they score 65.8 points and give up 65.6 points. There’s a very slim margin of error for this team, which would explain the poor record. They are 7-15-1 ATS overall and 1-7 ATS on their home court.
Just by looking at the record and the way the teams have played over the last month, this is either Drexel or no pick.
The Dragons at least play with some consistency and have an awesome ATS road record. The Dukes can’t do anything right and have only one ATS home victory all season.
The Dragons are 4-0-1 ATS in their last five games and are 4-1 ATS in their last five meetings against the Dukes. James Madison is 5-15-1 ATS in its last 21 games.
