Saint Peter’s is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the under is 6-0 in their last 6 road games. Hartford is 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall.
I’m not running to the window to bet this thing, but I don’t feel good about backing either side here, as I don’t trust Saint Peter’s to cover this number, but Hartford’s been blown out in similar spots to this. That’s why I’m on the under here. This just feels like a 40 minute slop fest full of mistakes and bricks and I think it’s the first to 60 wins if we even make it there. Give me the under.
