USA TODAY Sports

The Elon Phoenix don’t have a bad overall record at 12-8 but they really can’t afford too many conference losses after dropping to 3-4 in the CAA with an 89-67 defeat at William & Mary. The Tribe were up by nine at the half and continued to press the issue until the clock ran out. The Tribe simple shot the ball too well at 55% and 14-28 from beyond the arch while the Phoenix were limited to 42%. Tyler Seibring was Elon’s best offensive option with 18 points on 6-10 from the field while Luke Eddy  tossed in 13. Kardis Kundrotas and Dmitri Thompson added 12 and nine points respectively.

The under is 8-1 in James Madison last 9 overall and the Dukes are 14-3 ATS in their last 17 road games. Elon are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall and are  10-25 ATS in their last 35 home games while the over is 7-3-1 in their last 11 home games. James Madison has already lost to Elon and I think they want to avoid the sweep…
