The Delaware Blue Hens need a victory here in order to snap a six-game losing streak.

The Huskies are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 Thursday games. The Blue Hens are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS loss. The Huskies are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings, the favorite is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The Delaware Blue Hens have lost six straight games and are shooting just 42 percent from the field while scoring under 65 points in their last five games. That's not enough to hang with a Northeastern Huskies squad that can light it up offensively and does shoot 46.6 percent on the road. Northeastern beat Delaware by 12 points a couple of weeks ago and has won five of the last six meetings overall. I'll eat the reasonable number with the road team.
