Both teams are playing good basketball heading into this contest, but it's fair to argue the Hofstra Pride are slightly better at both ends of the floor. Hofstra has also been ridiculous against the number these last couple of years and a team I usually blindly back. It's also not easy to beat the same team twice in a short span. Everything posting toward Hofstra here. Give me the Pride.
