The Quakers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games vs. a team with a losing straight up record and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Dragons are 15-33-3 ATS in their last 51 home games and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Quakers are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
Drexel is 1-8 and struggling big time on the offensive end. I can't lay points with a team this bad. So while Penn isn't much better, this is more of a fade against a brutal Dragons team.
