The Binghamton Bearcats have had issues on both sides of the ball this season, aren't covering numbers and needed overtime in their last contest to reach the 70 point mark for the first time this season. The UMBC Retrievers have won each of their last six games and their only loss was a competitive contest against Georgetown in their season opener. UMBC has also covered 16 of its last 21 games. I'll lay the big number with the Retrievers in this spot.
