Will update with trends once they're released.
Both of these teams are playing poor basketball heading into this contest, but it's the Drexel Dragons who have been in far worse shape, losing their last five games by an average of 8.2 points while allowing 50 percent shooting from the field and 38.6 percent shooting from deep. The Drexel Dragons are also 4-11-1 against the spread this season in non-home games. The UNC Wilmington Seahawks have had their issues as well, especially in non-home games this season, but they just beat Drexel a little over a week ago by nine points, and they've bene tighter defensively. Give me the free buckets with the Seahawks.
