The Pride are 1-8-1 ATS in their last 10 games following a S.U. win and 9-3-3 ATS in their last 15 Wednesday games. The Explorers are 5-17 ATS in their last 22 Wednesday games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 non-conference games.
Hofstra Pride is a very, very good offensive team that shoots well and moves the basketball. However, La Salle is capable of scoring in the 80s as well and has the best overall player in this game in Price, who can takeover whenver. I like the home team here.
