The Raiders are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Dons are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 non-conference games, 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 5-1 in Dons last 6 home games and the under is 7-0 in Raiders last 7 overall.
The San Francisco Dons were just 11-18 ATS this season and 4-10 ATS at home. Yes, the Dons are more battle tested and the more talented team, but it's hard laying this decent sized number with those records. The Colgate Raiders tested themselves this season by playing UConn, Boston College and Syraucse on the road, and of course, they played Bucknell three times. Colgate won't be scared of the moment here and has a deep offense with four double-digit scorers. There's value with the points.
