The Dukes are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games. The Blue Hens are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games following a S.U. win and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The road team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
In a toss up game between two below subpar teams, I usually side with the home team. Delaware has won most of its games within the last month or so and have been a lot more compeititve. However, tread lightly due to this game going either way.
